James 5:19-20 (KJV) “Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.”
Last item on James list is to watch out for our brothers and sisters in Christ. When we see them straying speak to them, encouraging them to have a closer walk with God. In verse 19 the conversion James speaks is to turn from sin and repent of the sins we have committed.
In verse 20 James is speaking of converting or turning a sinner from a life of sin to a follower of Jesus. Some will say wait a minute only God can soften a heart to accept the gospel and this is true. Yet the gospel has to be shared and God has chosen the church the bride of Christ to do this work. So if we can share the gospel and a person is converted it will definitely save a soul from death and will cover their sins by washing them away with the redeeming blood of Jesus.
We are commanded rote share the Love of our savior are you doing your part?
