He that winneth souls is wise…
God needs people in the nooks and crannys of society, under the floorboards, and cracks, to scrape people off the sidewalk, who have been stampeded, and crushed. Those who don’t see hope for their individual situation, and who feel so lost, they’re not even able to ask for directions. People who cannot ever be ministered to, through any kind of conventional means.
To win a soul is wise, to become a soul that needs to be won in order to win a soul is wise.
He That Winneth Souls Is Wise…
To become the creature, to win the creature, is God’s wisdom, through his son;
To become who you need to, and bring someone through, as the great Apostle advised, is how
Oh, if we step out of our cozy costumes, where we try to be so secure, then we become like our master,
Who gave up his majesty, lowering himself to be, among all our manure.
You can’t do it from your perch, but go deep into your heart, and into your passions, you gotta search,
To find your map,
And for your purpose to tap,
To be a well-nourishing sap,
Because he that winneth souls is wise,
So come out your own disguise,
Help your people reach their skies.
Yes, leave your own lies, put on a passion’s guise,
Cause he that winneth souls, is very wise.
