Set My Soul Afire

Set My Soul Afire
“Set my soul afire Lord, for Thy Holy Word, Burn it deep within me, let Thy voice be heard
Millions grope in darkness in this day and hour, I will be a witness, fill me with Thy pow’r

Refrain:
Set my soul afire Lord, set my soul afire.
Make my life a witness of Thy saving pow’r. Millions grope in darkness, waiting for Thy Word. Set my soul afire, Lord, set my soul afire!

Set my soul afire, Lord, for the lost in sin, Give to me a passion as I seek to win; Help me not to falter never let me fail, Fill me with Thy Spirit, let Thy will prevail.

Set my soul afire, Lord, in my daily life. Far too long I’ve wandered in this day of strife; Nothing else will matter but to live for Thee, I will be a witness for Christ lives in me.”

Last Saturday morning I went out Soul Winning in Ridgefield. Fewer people slammed the door in my face than on previous outings. Is that a good thing or not? I’m not sure. Isa 53:3  “He is despised and rejected of men; …” Perhaps it was just that I was in a section of town that was more socially established and folks were just being dutifully polite.

Three different people said they were less than 100% sure of going to heaven. But all three of them were “too busy” to look in the Bible to learn how they could be 100% sure. They have no fear for their soul, they are blinded by Satan. 2 Cor 4:4  “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” One teenage boy told me he was “busy right now and, I go to Crash sometimes.” Crash is a local youth group that had a float in the parade two years ago that was not abstaining “from all appearance of evil” (I Thes 5:22) in any way. Another lady told me she attended such and such church. When I asked her if she knew how to get to heaven she replied that she works in the nursery and one of the elders or someone else would know the answer to that question. I can’t share the gospel with these people if they just keep closing the door on me. God’s Word will not return void (Isa 55:11) but if I don’t even have a chance to share any of His Word with them, well…what good have I done? Eph 6:19-20 “And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel, For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.”
