Who Will Go for Me
Who will go for me?
For Christ did not send me [as an apostle] to baptize, but [commissioned and empowered me] to preach the good news [of salvation]—not with clever and eloquent speech [as an orator], so that the cross of Christ would not be made ineffective [deprived of its saving power]. 1 Corinthians 1:17 AMP
THE GOSPEL IS FOR EVERYONE,AND CAN CAN SPREAD BY ANYONE
THE GOSPEL MESSAGE IS SO POWERFUL PAUL EVEN SAID THAT WHEN IT WAS PREACHED WRONG MOTIVES,HE SAID CHRIST IS STILL BEING PREACHED!
THE LORDS LINE UP.
SIMON-WAS CONSIDERED A POLITICIAN OR REVOLUTIONARY, A ZEALOT, INVOLVED IN ANARCHY IN ATTEMPTS TO OVERTHROW THE ROMAN EMPIRE!
MATTHEW-TAX COLLECTOR,IN HIS TIME TAX COLLECTORS WERE DESPISED AND CONSIDERED TRAITORS TO THERE OWN PEOPLE!
ANDREW,JAMES,PETER, AND JOHN-FISHERMAN
PAUL-PAUL WAS KILLING CHRISTIANS WHEN WE FIRST FIND HIM IN ACTS AND LATER IN LIFE HE MADE TENTS FOR A LIVING TO SUPPORT HIMSELF.
AS BELIEVERS SHARING THE GOSPEL YOU CAN'T LOOK AT SOMEONE AND SAY MAYBE THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR OR THEY DON'T LOOK LIKE THE CHURCH GOING TYPE OF INDIVIDUAL.
So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. And God blessed them [granting them certain authority] and said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subjugate it [putting it under your power]; and rule over (dominate) the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and every living thing that moves upon the earth.” Genesis 1:27-28 AMP
PEOPLE DESERVE A CHANCE TO KNOW THE GOD IN WHOSE IMAGE THEY ARE MADE AND TO KNOW THERE FATHER, AND TO KNOW ABOUT THE RICH INHERITANCE THAT IS IN CHRIST JESUS.
WHY DOES THAT PERSON LOVE TELLING EVERYONE ABOUT JESUS MORE THAN THAT PERSON? Then turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house [but you failed to extend to Me the usual courtesies shown to a guest]; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair [demonstrating her love]. 45 You gave Me no [welcoming] kiss, but from the moment I came in, she has not ceased to kiss My feet. 46 You did not [even] anoint My head with [ordinary] oil, but she has anointed My feet with [costly and rare] perfume. 47 Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much; but he who is forgiven little, loves little.” Luke 7:44-47 AMP
WHEN YOU ARE FORGIVEN FOR SO MUCH,YOU ALSO CARRY A LOVE FOR JESUS THAT IS JUST AS POWERFUL AND THAT LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT JESUS HAS DONE,"THE JOY OF YOUR SALVATION ", BREEDS A LOVE TO DO THE SAME FOR OTHERS.
WHY DO YOU THINK DAVID PRAYS TO THE LORD FOR THAT IN PSLAMS 51,BECAUSE HE UNDERSTANDS HOW VALUABLE IT IS,IT KEEPS YOU HUMBLE AND IS A CONSTANT REMINDER OF THE GRACE AND LOVE GOD HAS SHOWN YOU!
WHO HERE HAS BEEN SAVED BY JESUS CHRIST? WHO HERE HAS RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT?
WELL PRAISE GOD,LET ME TELL YOU GOD HAS ENTRUSTED YOU AND ME THESE VESSELS OF CLAY WITH GREAT POWER, GREAT SPIRITUAL FRUITS AND GIFTS,BUT ALSO WITH THIS GREAT POWER COMES AN EVEN GREATER RESPONSIBILITY TO USE THEM!
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, Because the Lord has anointed and commissioned me To bring good news to the humble and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up [the wounds of] the brokenhearted, To proclaim release [from confinement and condemnation] to the [physical and spiritual] captives And freedom to prisoners, Isaiah 61:1 AMP
Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8 AMP
“Come near to Me, listen to this: From the beginning I have not spoken in secret, From the time that it happened, I was there. And now the Lord God has sent Me, and His [Holy] Spirit.” Isaiah 48:16 AMP
WHY DO WE INVITE PEOPLE TO CHURCH BECAUSE I LOOK AT MY BRETHREN AND I SEE QUALITY PEOPLE WHO I TRUST TO PROVIDE FAMILIES WITH SOMETHING SPECIAL!
