The Mission of the Saved
The Mission of the Saved
The most effective way to draw souls to salvation is to be Christ-like in character and livedaily the life of Christ.Remember, our influence on others depends not so much on what we say as it depends on what we are.The truth spoken by one who has been transformed by the truth has innately a life changing, convincing and converting power.If there is a secret for effective Christian service and witnessing, it would be simply this, "Be a genuine born again spirit filled Christian and not just one who professes to be.
In Matt 28:18-20 we find the great mission of all Christians revealed in the great commission given by Christ just before He ascended.In these verses the Master starts off by declaring, "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth."Beloved this omnipotent power is primarily used to perform the miracle of miracles, which is, wicked human being recreated in God's image and God's righteousness.It must be understood that people are saved in order to save.Men become disciples in order to be fishers of men and make disciples.So the Master gives to us the great commission, "Go you therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.Amen"
One of the parting words of the Saviour is GO! Go revealMe to all nations.Go share the saving love you have found in me with the whole world.For those only who obey this command, and yoke up with Christ in labor for the lost, the promise is given, "and lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."Amen.
We have an entire world to reach and teach the true gospel.An unfortunate and sad reality is that the overwhelming majority of the entire professed Christian world is but wolves in sheep's clothing. Todays Christians are a group who believe that Christianity consist in just being happy that you are saved.It is a group whose religion merely consist in just going to church and mocking God by shouting and dancing, which is emotionalism, that ends when church service ends.They do nothing, or next to nothing, to make themselves a committee of one to fulfill the great commission.Modern professed Christianity consist in embracing the theories of truth, claiming to be entitled to all the benefits promised in God's word while the life is enslaved to all manner of evil and sin. Professed Christians no longer believe that they must forsake all for the kingdom of heaven's sake.Lukewarm professed Christians no longer believe that it is a must to live the self-sacrificing, self-denying life of Christ.In fact the lying ministers have created a new gospel which majors on being rich.They teach the Christian world to believe that there is no need to forsake the love of the world or the love and lust for the things of the world.They make God to be the source for the fulfillment of the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life.Money is the new God, and emotionalism, incorrectly labeled the Holy Ghost is the goal of church attendance.Profession alone is nothing but a lie.A high and lofty profession is worthless if the life is not in harmony with the profession.Professed Christians now-a-days make merchandise of God's grace by preaching, singing, and performing solely for filthy lucre.Preachers rob their flocks and steal in the name of the Lord.They preach lies in order to enrich themselves and make a name for themselves; and they do all this in the name of the Lord.
The Master teaches His children that, "Ye are the light of the world" Matt 5:14.Therefore, "Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven" Matt 6:16.As the elect people of God, in this the midnight of earth's history, we are to sound throughout the length and breath of the earth the midnight cry."Behold, the Bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet Him."Matt 25:6.We have a world to give God's Final Call and Warning.We as one united voice must go forward to every nation, kindred, tongue and people, in the spirit and power of Elijah preaching and teaching, "Repent ye for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." Matt 3:2.We must be united and be the voice of one, crying in the wilderness of this lost and dark world, "Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight" Matt 3:3.We have our orders to fulfill the great commission.We are to "turn many to the Lord their God, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."Luke 1:16-17.God's church has the message of "the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, kindred, tongue and people.Saying, with a loud voice, Fear God and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come; and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the foundations of waters."Rev 14:6-7.
