Each of us are commissioned to Go! I think the difficulty at times is we somehow believe our assignment is not as important as our brothers. By hook or crook in the church community, we have managed to romanticize living the life of a missionary in Africa or we have even become envious of the TV evangelist -out to make a name for himself, doing Gods’ work in pretense, collecting widows money and evangelizing in the Bahamas on these snowing cold nights we are enduring. 😉
I am here to proclaim that your “GO” is every bit as important if you our sent to collect the one in the holler in Kentucky or the three upon the mountain top of Tennessee, the cowboy on the ranch in Texas, or the one down at the local garage. God loves everyone equally! If we can focus and work on the assignment we have been sent, then I am persuaded the Kingdom of God would begin to grow and hell wouldn’t be happy!
It says to “GO” ye into all the world~that sounds to me like some of us may be going into the cracks and cervices to dig them out. It ain’t gonna be pruty~ as we say here in the Appalachia. Somebody is going to have to get down and dirty. It ain’t gonna be easy or we ain’t promised a 5 star resort, but we are still commissioned to go.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:~Matthew 28:19 KJV
How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?~Matthew 18:12~KJV
Our very mission could be that Jesus is sending us to that one that went astray.
What makes us believe we our better than our Saviour is beyond me! The Son of Man had no place to lay his head. Why do we buy into all this Jazz that we should be living in beach condo’s driving pink vintage Cadillac’s and drinking pretty little virgin martini’s? We weren’t promised comfortable, but we were promised a Comforter.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.~John 14:26~KJV
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;~John 14:16~KJV
Dear Lord Jesus,
I praise you for you sending someone my way in the hollor in Kentucky. I thank you for your grace that was so mercifully sent to me and someone delivering the “GOOD NEWS”. I ask tonight please never let me live beneath your privileges, but help me to always remain humble. I am willing to “GO” to the one with the “GOOD NEWS” and do not seek to make a name for me, but only to magnify you. ~I Love you Jesus~In your Name I pray.~Amen
