“How much time have you spent in the last several days petitioning Me for the souls of those who are lost? What part of your life is spent in doing something so that those who don’t know Jesus may come to understand His Lordship? I know the answer! Why would you spend most of your days ignoring something that is so dear to My heart? Jesus gave His life to provide a means of hope for those who are lost. You need to pass on the incredible gift you have been given.”
Esther 4:13-14 AMP
13) Then Mordecai told them to return this answer to Esther, Do not flatter yourself that you shall escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews.
14) For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?
Psalm 51:10 AMP
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me.
Isaiah 30:21 NIV
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
Hosea 4:6 AMP
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you [the priestly nation] have rejected knowledge…
Hosea 13:6 NIV
“When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot me.”
God has a people who have been raised up to be His representatives, ambassadors who have the command to show others truth. It is their only purpose for taking in and releasing His air. To do anything other than that with their time and energy minimizes their time in doing what they are called to do. Those people are called His church.
Anyone who does not know the Lord, and therefore is not a member of His church, is not capable of obeying His commands. If we say that we are members of the church of Jesus Christ, then you and I have work to do if we say we honor God. Jesus showed us the way. It’s time to walk in it!
I choose to follow in Your footsteps, Lord,
