Jesus has called us Christians to be ambassadors to the world. He tells us in his word go ye into all the world and tell them about him dying on Calvary for them. And that he wants them to come to him and accept him as their savior and Lord. And that he is not willing that anyone perish but all come to repentance.
We are called to pray. Prayer has to be done in the power of the Holy Spirit. It includes prayer and supplication. Supplication focuses on the needs of others. We need to pray for our own needs, but we must pray for others welfare, because it reflects the heart of God.
We need to pray for boldness to share the gospel. Paul was an ambassador in prison when he was chained. We are ambassadors in our world today. We must be equipped for battle. We must put on the whole armor of God. The shield of faith for faith brings victory. We must stand in unity, or we will be defeated.
We must study our Bible to know how we can fight against the devil and his devices. Greater is he that is in us than he that is in the world. We are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ. We cannot stand by ourselves, we have no power of our own. We need Jesus to survive in this world.
Truly the harvest is great but where are the laborers. Where there is no vision, people perish. We are called to be the hands and feet of God. We are to share the gospel with those around us. Straight is the gate and narrow is the way, and few there be that find it.
The road to hell is in large now each day. It’s a road to destruction. What if we don’t do the job God has called us to do? We will give an account to him. Will we hear, “Well done thy good and faithful servant, enter in,” or will we hear, “Depart from me, I never knew you?” Which one will you hear? I want to hear, “Well done, thy good and faithful servant, enter in.” Joy forevermore.
Yours in Christ Jesus,
