Every son of God's first ministry is the ministry of reconciliation. We must compel men to seek after God, to love Him, and to never sin against Him. This is a great responsibility that we've received, and it must be treated with sobriety, reverence and holy fear.
To receive Christ is to instantly receive the souls and the spiritual destination of those around you, placed in your care. Every word that you speak, thought that you think, and response you give, weighs greatly on whether others come to know and worship Jesus as their Lord.
Your role in reconciling is not just to bring men to see Jesus as their Saviour, but to embrace Him as their Lord (master). By all means, preach the gospel for the lost to receive Christ, but you must also teach them how to be a servant to Him when He comes to live within.
