Bible Verses and Scripture for Lost Souls

We have a larger collection of Bible verses for lost souls and an insight into the word of God for souls who have fallen away from his path. Whether you are in need of guidance yourself or you want to offer it to another, God’s word can help.

Let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from his wandering will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins. – James 5:20

This verse is a reminder that every soul is valuable in the eyes of God, and that we all have a responsibility to help lead others back to Him. It is an encouragement to never give up on someone, even when they seem hopelessly lost.

There is always hope for redemption. The Bible is full of stories of people who have been lost but found their way back to God. We are all broken and in need of saving at some stage, but through the grace of God, we can be healed and made whole again.

There is no sin too great that God’s love cannot forgive, and no matter how far we have wandered, we can always find our way back

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. – John 1:9

This passage from John is teaching that if we confess our sins, God will forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Confession is a necessary part of the salvation process.

Without confessing our sins, we cannot be forgiven and will not inherit eternal life. This verse provides hope for lost souls who have not yet confessed their sins and turned to God for salvation.
