FROM THE AUTHOR:
Why Should I Be a Personal Worker?
By the term personal worker, we mean simply the Christian at work as an individual, telling others of the Christ, and instructing them in the Lord's terms of salvation. The personal worker is a teacher of individuals, instructing individuals personally instead of in groups. He is a Christian seeking to do what he can in leading those of his world to a knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Why?
1. The responsibility placed upon me by the Great Commission.
2. To be like Christ.
3. To express a holy impulse of the soul – a heart made right with God wants others to also be right with Him.
4. To be like the primitive church.
5. For self-preservation.
6. It is the greatest work one can do for another.
7. Because of the joy of a soul-winner.
8. It is God's desire to have all men saved.
You CAN become a fisher of men, a soul-winner for Jesus if you but will. The power is at your disposal; it is within you as Christ dwells in you, if you but let it find expression in and through your life. "Let's go fishing for men!"
