FROM THE DIRECTOR OF MISSIONS

1 I solemnly charge you before God and Christ Jesus, who is going to judge the living and the dead, and because of His appearing and His kingdom:

2 Proclaim the message; persist in it, whether convenient or not; rebuke, correct, and encourage with great patience and teaching.

3 For the time will come when they will not tolerate sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, will multiply teachers for themselves because they have an itch to hear something new.

4 They will turn away from hearing the truth and will turn aside to myths.

5 But as for you, be serious about everything, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. 2 Timothy 4:1-5

Well, Paul said it 2 thousand years ago. “The time will come.” And I believe it has come. The toleration of Christians is at an all time low world wide. The desire to listen to only those who preach a warm and fuzzy message with a watered down Gospel is in full bloom.

So, let’s just all give up! Let’s stop swimming upstream, let’s change our direction and go with the flow. After all, it’s not worth the effort anymore. I’m saved, I’m going to heaven, my wife and kids are saved, who cares about anyone else. The world is headed downhill toward hell and most everyone is cheering them on.

Well, I guess we could give up. Except that wasn’t what our Lord commanded us to do. He told us to “Go”, He told James to write, “Faith without works is dead faith”, He told Paul to write “Do the work of an evangelist”.

Doing the work of an evangelist isn’t asking someone from another church to come visit your church because you have a great worship team or a fantastic children’s ministry, or a really cool preacher. It means getting up in the morning and praying for God to place someone in your path today that is lost and needs to know Jesus as Savior. Then when you meet that person, you tell them about the grace and the love of Christ who died for our sins.

If your church has 20 members and each member leads just one person to Christ over the next 12 months then your church doubles by next year. Just one person! Just one person! Just one person! I don’t know if you got that or not. If you didn’t let me emphasize it one more time. JUST ONE PERSON!

Come on, let’s do it! Let’s get up our courage and talk to a brother, a sister, a husband, a wife, a mom, a dad, a friend, a co-worker. Let’s just start with one. God has made many promises to us in Scripture. He will never leave us, He will never forsake us, He loves us unconditionally. Let’s make a promise to Him.

Pray it with me. Dear God, I know how much you love me and I know the sacrifice you made for me by sending your Son to die for me. God, I am going to start telling other people about who You are and what you have done for me. I am asking you to be my strength in this because I have none of my own. God please help me to lead someone to faith in You.

In Jesus name,

Amen
