Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry in order somehow to make my fellow Jews jealous, and thus save some of them.(Romans 11:13-14)
In the past two days we saw that God reconciled us back to Himself by Christ and He set some conditions, and we saw some of them. Today we’ll look at one more condition that He set.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:19-20)
We are instructed by Christ to spread the Gospel, win souls, and teach them the Word. Yes, not all of us can go out to preach, but wherever you are make sure there is someone you are praying for to give their life to Christ, make sure there’s a person you are sharing the word of God with, make sure there’s a brother/sister you are helping to get strong in the Lord.
For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some. And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.(1 Corinthians 9:19-23)
As a child of God there mustn’t be any person you don’t talk to, unless the person has decided not to talk to you. Yes you can’t go to clubs, but that doesn’t mean you should let those who are going perish. You need to find a place where you will not be at risk of backsliding and share the word and the love of Christ with them, whether it be a lair, a fornicator, a drunkard, a gossiper, a homosexual, a thief, a prostitute, an atheist, or any kind of sinner, they all need Christ and need to hear and see His love. We just can’t force them to accept Him.
And this I do for the gospel’s sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.(1 Corinthians 9:23)
As children of God we need to be down to earth because are called to save the world, and there is you no way you can save people from a place you don’t understand. This is one of the reasons God had to come to earth as a human being and live like a human being, and this makes living a pure and righteous life possible because Christ showed us it can be done by doing it Himself.
If you are reading this and you want to receive Christ in your life or you want to return to Him, say this prayer. Lord Jesus, I believe that you are the son of God and you came to die for my sins, wash me with your precious blood. Bring me back to you, from today I’m yours, I’m born again. Amen.
Since Christ saved you, make it a point that He saves more people through you by showing your neighbours His love.
