One Soul

Sometimes, we as soul winners get discouraged because only one or two persons get saved at an event. We should be rejoicing over that one soul and be thankful that God uses us to bring that person to Him.
There are many examples of our worth to God in scripture. The parable of the 99 sheep is one example.
The Shepard left his 99 sheep to find the one that was lost. How he loved that one sheep.
Matthew 18:12-13
How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.

In Isaiah 13:12
I will make a man more precious than fine gold;
One soul is precious to God.
Luke 15:7
I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
