Leading souls to Christ can be a very relative term. We often do not consider that attempting to plead with others to “follow Christ” only works if those people are willing to reach out and began to study the gospel (Bible) for themselves. What the young preacher Timothy was told applies here, “2Timothy 2:15 Study earnestly to present you approved to God, a workman that does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth.”
There is no doubt we must begin to educate others as well as ourselves about the good news of Jesus Christ. In the preceding paragraph the factor of educating dear souls or leading them to Christ, is one thing, but to get them to THINK, or STUDY for themselves and lay all preconceived notions aside is another.
Let us teach others to THINK deeply about the truth found in God’s word. We need to tell people that the truth is like emptying their greatest riches into their heads, and then we must show them that no man can ever take it away from them. An investment in the knowledge of Jesus Christ always pays the best interest! This is the highest and grandest education anyone could ever achieve. Php. 4:8, 9
