Altar work is probably the most important work in the Church today. It is important to realise that serious damage can be done if souls are not handled properly.
Keep in mind that the preacher has to devote himself to prayer in order to deliver a serious message of the Lord - it is not easy to bring a soul into the prayer room. Like a baby needs diligent assistance during the birthing process so does the person who, gets born again. Many souls are crippled because they were not treated correctly at their rebirth. God will hold the worker responsible. Dr. Oswald Smith once said:
“If you can’t help him through, leave him alone.”
