SUNDAY 18TH OF AUGUST 2019
“Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; and looking upon Jesus as He walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and followed Jesus”
We are the living witnesses of the true and living God. We are kingdom citizens living on earth. Of all God’s creation, we are the only ones God shared His spirit with; we have been made special, we have been privileged to have dominion over all His creation. We are God’s treasured possession; we occupy His mind at all times.
Besides the general privileges we all enjoy from God, each of us is a living witness of the impact our encounter with God has produced in our lives. Through our acceptance of Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, God has changed our lives; He has turned our lives around. Our experiences with God are diverse and unique and marked a turning point in all our lives.
No matter how unpopular Jesus may seem in our society today, we must not live in denial of Him! We must live daily acknowledging His impact on our lives; He has changed our course and He has changed our destiny. We were nobody, having lost all our self worth and living a life of vanity and hopelessness; He gave our lives essence; Jesus gave our lives hope, He gave us a future.
God wants to do in the lives of others what He has done in your life and mine. God loves everyone around us as He loves you and me. Let us individually target people around us, let each one of us become partners with God as we share this burden the Lord has for our siblings, parents, colleagues, housemates, course-mates etc.
Let us not waste time anymore, let us not delay our action any longer. Every opportunity to share our testimony with others that we miss means more people missing out on God’s love and salvation. Let us share our testimonies intentionally; let us develop passion for the lost. Let us target our neighbours prayerfully.
As we intercede for our people we free their hearts, and prepare their hearts to be a fertile ground for the seed of the Word of God that we eventually share with them.
Remember, “… he that winneth souls is wise.” (Proverbs 11:30)
“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever.”- Daniel 12:3
Let us not receive His grace in vain, let us share the gospel with everyone, and as we do, we shall be wise and shine forever and ever. Amen!
God Bless You
