  1. 1. Every Christian has a divine assignment to win souls (Matthew 25 vs. 14) – “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them
  2. God has apportioned the soul winning according to everyones ability (Matthew 25 vs. 15) – To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.

 

  1. The nature and responsibility of these evangelistic assignments vary in dimensions. Some the made Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Deacons, Teachers, and other he made Overseers (Matthew 25vs.15) – To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey.

  1. God will one day ask every believer to account how he has used his ability to execute this evangelistic assignment (Matthew 25 vs. 19) – “After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them.
  2. Heavens will rejoice with soul sinners (Matthew 25 vs. 21) – “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

 

  1. Christians are expected to win more souls with their divine abilities (Matthew 25 vs. 20) – The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.’
  2. Believers will be given positions of leadership and responsibility according to the number of souls they won on earth (Matthew 25 vs. 21) – “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
  3. Evangelists and soul winners shall experience and live in joy in heaven (Matthew 25 vs. 23) – “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
  4. Unprofitable servants, those that did not add value to the kingdom, those who wasted or buried their talents while on earth shall be rebuked by God and cast into hell (Matthew 25 vs. 30) – And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’
