1Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.(12) Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; (13) Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. (14) If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. (15) If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
While reaching souls for Jesus is a great work, it is not the only work.  In Jesus great commission He also commanded us to make disciples of those that were saved.
Mt 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
As Christians we have gotten away from this command in favor of mass evangelism.  Many church members are satisfied to let the pastors and evangelists do all the soul winning and teaching.
This is not the command that Jesus gave us.  Each of us individually have our own work to do in reaching souls.
Even if we don't feel a responsibility to do that work for the Lord today, we will realize that responsibility when we stand before Jesus and He judges our works.
Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know.  Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus.  I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
