KEY SCRIPTURE: Mat 28:19 KJV “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”
Every Christian is commanded to ‘go ye’ into the world and teach the nations. Why are most Christians not going forth as the Lord commanded us? The very first reason why many do not go forth is because they do not realise it is a sin to receive an instruction from the Lord and to be disobedient about it Today repent from this sin and get involved in the call to go and make disciples.
A second reason why most of us are not involved in reaching out to the lost is because it has not become a priority to us. As a result of that many people do not make time for it. We get occupied with so many things but not to reach out. Dear one the most expensive of all commodities in this life is the soul of men. Jesus said what does it profit a man , if he gains the whole world and lose his soul. This statement simply means nothing can be exchanged for the soul of a man. The bible says Satan has blinded the minds of them that believe not and is sweeping them into hell. (2nd Corinth 4:4) The following is the plight of those that Satan has succeeded in deceiving. Isaiah 5:14 KJV” Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it.” Dear brother would you sit down and watch precious souls descend into hell? From today, make soul winning the most important task in all your engagements.
The next reason why many Christians are not heeding this command to go out and reach out to the lost is because they are shy or afraid. This issue of shyness means most Christian are not abreast with what is at stake. Our contention for souls is not against the humans we are relating with. It is a war against devils who have held these people captive. They use them to do more shameful things that non of them is shy about. People are ready to boldly identify themselves as homosexuals and lesbians who have no sense of shame. What is the shame in presenting a truth that would liberate them? To say you are shy means you have not known the power of the gospel. Apostle Paul says he is not ashamed of the gospel of our Lord Jesus because it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes Rom 1:16. Please get the picture clear, these humans, who may be our brothers, friends, neighbours or what have you are being attacked and destroyed by these devils, yet we have the ability and the means to free them. That means is by the gospel. Will you continue saying you are shy or afraid? Arise today, shake off every dust of shyness or fear and get to work to save men with the truth of the gospel.
THOUGHT: WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO SPARE, LET’S GET BUSY SAVING MEN
Jude 1:22 KJV “And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.”
Mat 16:26 KJV “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”
