In this sermon outline we point out the need of God’s people to have a ’Spiritual Vision of the Lord, His Word and the ministry He has for each one of us.

1. The word of this song tells us all.
"Souls are crying, men are dying,"
As we look all around us,
All the fields are white,
They’re ripened unto harvest,
Yet so quickly comes the night.
Christians must get busy,
There’s so much work to do.
Here’s an urgent task awaiting you.
Souls are crying, men are dying,
Won’t you lead them to the cross.
Go and find them, Please help to win them
Win the lost at any cost.
Check your fold, my Christian brother,
See if all your children are in.
Are there some still straying in the
Blackened fields of sin.
You must go out and win them,
Go quickly without delay;
Soon the trump of God shall end the day.
Go out and win, rescue from sin,
Day’s almost done, and the battle’s almost won.
Souls are crying, men are dying;
Win the lost at any cost.
