“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 NIV
After Jesus’ resurrection, while talking with His disciples, He gave them (and every believer!) a job to do — He sent them forth to follow His example.
“Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.””
John 20:21 NIV
We have a mighty work to do. We are in a battle for souls. Battles with the enemy require a powerful, fresh anointing every day. That anointing is always given for service and for spiritual warfare to be used for God’s glory.
John Wesley declared, “If I had three hundred believers who feared nothing but God, hated nothing but sin, and were determined to know nothing among men but Jesus Christ and Him crucified, I would set the world on fire.”
God continues to look for those men, women and young people in our day, people who will set the world on fire. Will you surrender to Him, rise up to rekindle the flame, and help change the world?
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5 NIV
Jesus has anointed you to go and spread the message of His love and His saving, healing and delivering power. As with every believer, it is your responsibility to share what God has done in your life with the lost and the hurting.
We must make it our life’s calling to reach people and build lives, following His example in prayer, word, and deed. We have a great and mighty work to do!
