COMMISSION/TASKS: To LIVE the WORD, being a CHRIST-LIKE, thereby influencing individuals/groups in your environment/society positively, to the extent that they which are yet to be saved will gladly listen to the gospel of Christ Jesus, heed and yield to the Truth and Life for their grand salvation.
Well, I am glad to tell you that the work of God is not done by great people but by ordinary people who are committed to GOD (most end up being great as a result of their genuine zeal for GOD and in HIS service). We may say to God, “I am nothing. I have no gifts. I often fail miserably. In the process, you may even want to ask GOD that do You really want to use me?”
The answer to that question is found in God’s Word. He used the hesitant, inarticulate Moses to lead Israel to freedom (Ex. 3:13; 4:10). He used men of the herds and flocks, as well as fishermen and farmers to accomplish His work and record His words. A simple carpenter and a peasant girl raised His Son.
GOD still works that way. Therefore, you are as relevant as an evangelist, if you could at least forsake your sins, decide to follow Jesus Christ, obey every principles of GOD not excluding preaching the gospel of Christ, even to the outermost part of the World. Although we have “mega-methods,” mass media, and superchurches, yet, it is ordinary people who do God’s extraordinary work in most cases. A grandmother prays faithfully for her 14 grandchildren and talks to each one about trusting Christ. A clerical worker witnesses to everyone in his office. A Christian takes a meal to her unbelieving neighbors when their baby is hospitalized and assures them of her prayers.
When we ask, “Does God really want to use me?” the answer is clear. God chooses “the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty” (1 Cor. 1:27).
God has been using ordinary people like you and me for thousands of years before now, HE is currently using and breeding more from among the “willing to serve” individuals/groups. Why would He stop now? Anyway, the real question here is, will you yield to the glory of GOD?
BENEFITS/REWARDS: Your own branded grand reward is awaiting you, it may not be same with Peter and other Apostles, but be rest assured, you’ve got to see GOD to hand it over to you first, it worth it.
=>Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.
=>And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
HE said …Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds. Revelations 22:12. Sincerely, according to Romans 2:6 GOD “will repay each person according to what they have done.” Therefore, start doing your best for GOD now, better than before. GOD bless You, Amen!
