People don't witness because people don't care, and they don't care because they don't pray earnestly for God's kind of Love for sinners as they should.

After resting his head down upon his pillow at night and before young missionary, Brainerd, would fall asleep, he would be thinking of lost souls and dreaming dreams of souls - about how he could talk and reach them. 

And then as he woke up in the morning, guess what... he was still thinking about them, so he would earnestly pray for them. 

And then what happened? Well, God gave him a harvest of souls. Sure, cuz he cared about people. Many today do not. Do you care?

Jesus cared about everyone He met and about those they would meet. He was accurately portrayed as a man's man that was, "moved with compassion."

Read about others like that...

"Give me Scotland, or I die!" ~ John Knox

"Tell me, the depth of a Christian man's compassion, and I will tell you the measure of his usefulness. The wealth of Egypt's harvest is proportioned to the depth of the Nile's overflow" ~ Maclaren

Care. Simple huh. Care enough to take action. 

Start caring today, preach Christ and His cross. He cared from up there on it and prayed for his enemies. Christ was a good witness for His Father as He was being murdered an innocent Man. 

Do this work with joy in the Spirit and have confidence in the power of.. and directly in.. the Word of God. The Word is alive. He still primarily reaches people through people. Yes, He uses loving people with gracious deeds of compassion and true verbal communication of His Gospel. On the horizontal level, is there a better work than that of soul-winning? No. Who in the New Testament came to saving faith without God using a caring human agent? No one. Can God save people without using a believer? Yes, but He has commanded us to love our neighbor and go tell. 

"For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost" (Lk. 19:10).

"This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief" (1 Tim. 1:15).

Call out to God to know His Son intimately. Call out to Him for your friends and loved ones. Call out for more grace and keen insight. He that wins souls is wise. Have tact and agape love inside. Don't argue or strive in the flesh, but let's start while it's still called today.
