Be Ready for the Backslider.

Let him know, that he who converteth a sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall cover a multitude of sins. James 5:20

As we go along doing our day to day thing, may I encourage you to be ready not just for the ones who have never encountered Jesus, but also for the backslider. Be ready for those who for whatever reason, have left the truth to return to folly and error.
As you minister to them LISTEN to their hearts cry and concern, don't just try to rush them to repent so they can return to Jesus. Ask God as they talk to help you go to the root of it all and ask Him to help you comfort and build them up. Let them know that anything you can do to help them walk with Christ you will. Relationships are so important in the Kingdom and while there may be some hustlers out there--let God deal with that. He will give you discernement and wisdom for each and every person and situaion that's for sure! The main thing is we want to be the ones that God uses to help bring the wandering souls back before it's too late.

Let God Urge Men to Christ Through YOU! 2 Corinthians 5:20
Prayer for Everyone
