Reach out and touch someone, encourage someone, pray for someone, help someone today, so that we can make this world a better place. Sometimes just a smile or a kind word is worth more than money. People have gotten so selfish these days nobody wants to help anyone in any form or fashion. However, everyone reaches that place in their life where money can’t buy happiness nor contentment, so you have to make that critical decision as to who or what can make you happy and content; who can give you that peace that surpasses all understanding, that when everything is going buck wild, you are just calm. There is only one person I know that gives you that kind of peace in the middle of a crisis, and that person is God.
Everyone reaches that point in their life, where you have to make that crucial decision to serve God with all your heart, soul, and might; Because you have never met anyone who could love you any sweeter or better, after you have messed up so many times. This should propel you to want to share with people the joys, thrills, and agonies of having someone there with you and for you at all times. Once people see the joy and peace that you display as a child of God they will want to know what makes you so joyful and peaceful. 1 Peter 3:15 tells us to sanctify the Lord God in our hearts and be ready always to give an answer to every man who asked you a reason of the hope that is in you. Jesus never chased anyone down and tried to force Himself on anyone or force them to accept His Father because they had a choice.
In Matthew 28:18-20, He tells us to go out and teach all nations, and baptize them in the Name of the trinity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), and teach them to observe all things that He commands us, and the assurance that He will be with us. This simply means that if you are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ which is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes as Romans 1:16 tells us, then the Gospel of Christ is not a secret to keep to ourselves, and it will be the only gossip you spread that will not hurt someone but save them. The thing is we are living in the last days and Acts 1:7-8 tells us, that it’s none of our business or concern the time or seasons which God has put in His own authority, because when we receive the Holy Spirit, we will receive power, to be His witness, and our fear will diminish, since we can now tread on serpents, scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing can hurt us as Luke 10:19 reminds us.
When we accept Christ we are new creatures who obey God and live for God, so we do as Romans 12:1-2 and 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, and present our bodies as a living sacrifice that is Holy and acceptable unto God, because we no longer own ourself we now belong to God, who bought us with a price. Therefore, it’s no longer a secret what God can do, so it’s our duty to let the world know that when we call on the name of the Lord He will save you. However, Romans 10:13-15 says, How will people call on Him, know or believe Him if they don’t know Him, that’s why our lives must show it, and we have to teach and preach the Gospel of Christ.
However, to teach and preach we must do as 2 Timothy 2:15 tells us, to study to show ourselves approved unto God, so that we are good soldiers in the army of the Lord unashamed and rightly dividing the word of truth. Since we are working for Him we have to hide His word in our hearts to keep us from sinning against Him this is seen in Psalms 119:11. Even though the lesson tries to show us that millions of people don’t know Jesus Christ, I believe the number is less, because with todays advanced technology, more people are reached on a daily basis, it’s just that the enemy has increase their appetite for sin, and has covered their faces with veils so that they don’t hear, see or care.
God has never forced His will or choice on us, and there is no excuse that they have not heard the word or seen His wonderful creation. Why are we limiting God as if He is not powerful enough to reach who He wants to reach and save who He wants to. Isaiah 59:1-2 tells us that the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, neither His ear heavy, that it cannot hear… Which means they will get the word one way or another. The God I serve is limitless and all-powerful, full of mercy, and grace. Anyone who dies not knowing God is not from lack of Him trying, because He will send you to someone or someone to you. So when He sends someone to me or me to them I am ready to do His will, but I will not force them, because God nor Jesus never forced anyone to do anything.
If you have never experienced that peace and tranquility that only God can give through His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, I would strongly recommend that you try Him. Don’t knock Him until you try Him, trust Him, depend on Him, and build all your hopes on Him, He has never failed me yet, and if anyone says He has failed them it’s because they didn’t stick to the plans He laid out for them. How many people has tried Him then followed their own selfish desires, failed and then blamed God. When you get to know God and obey His word then you will know without a shadow of a doubt that He never fails or disappoint anyone, He does what He promises to do as long as you do what you promise Him to do.
