Loving God, Equipping People, Mentoring Leaders, Reaching Nations
I think the Church today needs real disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ (true converts) who are willing to go anywhere and do anything the Holy Spirit tells them.
I think we need to take seriously the words of the Lord. He tells us we are to go into all the world and make disciples – assumes we are one ourselves – and teach these new disciples to “obey everything I have commanded you”. Well, we better know what it is He has commanded us to be and to do – and we need to be in the process of “becoming” and in the position of obediently following His commands (doing) otherwise it is ‘do as I say and not do as I do’.
It is time for the believers in North America to find out what they truly are suppose to believe as Christians and disciples of the Lord.
It is time to stand up for those beliefs and be willing to challenge our society with the truths of the Christian gospel. It is time for disciples to become bold (in the Holy Spirit) and to stop being intimidated by those in the world who speak with confidence and often with boldness and, in reality, speak nonsense and non-truth deceiving many about the spiritual world, the coming judgment, and life after death.
It is time for God’s people to be bolder than those who worship and serve either self, the world or the devil (or all three).
It is time to stand tall believers as true disciples of the Lord.
It is time to tell others of the night and day difference Jesus has made in your life. The Bible states: “You are the ones chosen by God…God’s instruments to do His work and speak out for Him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference He made for you.” (1 Peter 2:9 The Message Version)
It is time to remove anything and everything that prevents us from fulfilling the Great Commission – which may mean giving up the good for the best. The best? Simply doing what the Lord has told us to do. Like Him we must “be about our Father’s business of seeking and saving the lost.” (Luke 19:10).
It is time!
