The Lord Is Counting
On YOU Today!
And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus
A certain minister told the story of how, many years ago, as he spent time in prayer and intercession, with tears for the lost souls in the world asked the Lord to do something about the situation. While He continued in prayer, the Lord spoke to Him and said, “Son, I’ve done everything I needed to do, and all that I should do about it. I’m now counting on you to do something!” Immediately, it dawned on him that God had done all that was necessary for the salvation of the whole world. He already sent Jesus to die for the whole world, and also raised Him back to life for their justification.
John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” God has fulfilled His own part; He’s now counting on you and me to take His message of salvation to the ends of the earth. This is the Lord’s passion—soul winning; and He wants you to be fully involved in it. Prove your love for Him today by taking His job of soul winning seriously. Spreading the Gospel of Christ’s salvation should be paramount to you because you’re His representative here on earth.
I made up my mind years ago to invest my life in soul winning because I realized that the Lord was counting on me as the hope and answer to the cries of millions around the world. Realize that the responsibility is reposed on you to reach the world for Christ. Know that you’re standing in Christ’s stead here on earth, to carry on His work of reconciling men unto Him. Through you, He wants to demonstrate His love, healing power and salvation to a hurting world.
Remember, you’re His living tabernacle; so whatever He wants done here on earth has to be through you. He’s counting on you to reach the unreached and enforce His will in the hearts of men. Let Him move through you and look through you today! Let him touch someone with His love through you today, for you’re His outstretched arm of salvation, hope and healing in an ailing world.
I thank you for making me your outstretched arm of help, healing, deliverance and salvation to the world. I was born for this purpose, to be the answer to the cry of millions in this world. I’m a blessing to my generation and a vessel through which your blessing flows today,
in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
