I'm not trying to start any heated debates. I'm just trying to understand something, Looking for your honest opinions.

So, last night at church we had a guest speaker and he was talking about "winning souls to Christ" I've heard this language a lot lately and I really don't understand it. It seemed to be presented like a sports competition. "How many souls have you saved this week?" That's not the exact wording he used but it's the impression I got.

I've always believed it's the Holy Spirit's job to bring people to Christ. If we are blessed to be a part of it somehow then we should be grateful for that but it's still God's work not ours. We shouldn't take the credit. We didn't "win" anything.

I'm wondering if I'm missing something in this wording. What do you think "Winning souls to Christ" means? Do you think we should be actively trying to "save souls"? If so, how do you go about it?
