My friends, I went to the most eye-opening class over the weekend! It was teaching the ‘one minute witness’! Do you know the most important call of God on your life? God love us all so much that His heart is consumed with not losing any of His kids to the devil. So He has given us the huge privilege of helping Him in the Great commission~
Matthew 28:18-20 (AMP)
18 Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority (all power of absolute rule)
in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.
19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations
[help the people to learn of Me, believe in Me, and obey My words],
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you; and lo,
I am with you always [remaining with you perpetually—
regardless of circumstance and on every occasion],
even to the end of the age.”
Notice Jesus told the disciples first that He now held ALL authority of absolute rule in heaven and on earth. Then He tells us to go be Ambassadors from His Kingdom to the world. We are to make disciples of all nations teaching people about God and His love for us, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. We are to teach them the things Jesus taught us about obedience knowing that Jesus is with us through it all helping us do what He asked of us. We’re never just left on our own.And Holy Spirit will guide us to those who are ready to hear and give us the words.
That would be enough, but He took it to next level; he inspired a man to teach us how to witness to other people in a simple, non-threatening way. We remember that it can take up to 7 contacts before a person may be ready to accept Christ as as their King. So some contacts we may be planting seeds, or we may be watering seeds another planted, or we may have the honor of leading them through the salvation prayer. The key is to be out there sharing our gift of salvation with others who, because of our refusal to speak, could spend eternity in hell.
Romans 10:8-1;13-14 (TLB)
8 For salvation that comes from trusting Christ—which is what we preach—
is already within easy reach of each of us;
in fact, it is as near as our own hearts and mouths.
9 For if you tell others with your own mouth that Jesus Christ is your Lord
and believe in your own heart that God has raised him from the dead,
you will be saved.
10 For it is by believing in his heart that a man becomes right with God;
and with his mouth he tells others of his faith, confirming his salvation.
13 Anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.
14 But how shall they ask him to save them unless they believe in him?
And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him?
And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
We are the messengers!!
