Will H. Houghton and Wendell P. Loveless wrote a moving hymn, dating from its copyright in 1936. The words of this song ought to remind us of the overwhelming need to reach out to the lost and bring them to Christ Jesus our Lord:
Lead me to some soul today;
O teach me, Lord, just what to say;
Friends of mine are lost in sin,
And cannot find their way.
Few there are who seem to care,
And few there are who pray;
Melt my heart and fill my life:
Give me one soul today.
What if the Lord has placed within your sphere of influence a soul that needs the saving blood of Jesus? What will you do?
All around us are people whose lives are filled with self and who have forgotten the Lord. Our task is to remind them that the Lord loves them but will hold them accountable one day. A kind word or deed, a simple invitation, and a little effort can help them to be prepared for that day.
The Lord is depending on you to share the gospel with those you love.
If your heart is touched and tender
Toward a sinner, lost and low,
It might help him to do better,
If you’d only tell him so.
This song reminds us of the need to bring the lost to Christ.
