The stage is set, the lights are on, every prop has been put into place, the cast members have been taught their roles, and the curtain is about to open. The Lord has been orchestrating and setting the stage for His coming. He has trained and positioned His servants for the last act, the final episode, His final coming.
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Revelation 22:12-13
Are you His servant? Has He been preparing you to perform a task, a job of critical importance? He surely has been preparing His children for this very time and place.
16 “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. 17 Beware of men, for they will deliver you over to courts and flog you in their synagogues, 18 and you will be dragged before governors and kings for my sake, to bear witness before them and the Gentiles. 19 When they deliver you over, do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour. 20 For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. Matthew 10:16-20
In these last days, He has been reaching out over the entire world, preparing His workers, His laborers to work in His harvest fields. Your main function as a follower of Jesus Christ is to seek to save the lost. To reach out to them with the soul-saving power of the Gospel. Not just to save a life, which is of utmost importance, but to save their souls from eternal death!
Those who have gone before you have paved the way. They have sown the seeds of the Good News that Jesus Christ came to die, pay for their sins, defeat death, and was risen from the dead. That their sins may be forgiven that they may be granted eternal life in Heaven with Jesus.
Lift up your eyes and see all those around you. Right now they are heading for an eternity of torment if you don’t reach out to them with the truth. Seek the Lord to be filled with His Spirit that you may have power, boldness, and focus to seek to save the lost.
Even some non-believers understand that if you had a message of eternal life and you did not warn people from the danger of eternal punishment, you do not have love, but hate.
“How much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize? How much do you have to hate someone to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that?” Penn Jillette, atheist
Even now the Lord is giving both those who sow and those who reap rewards for eternity. Go and build up treasures in Heaven. Leading the lost sheep of the Lord to eternal life.
31 Meanwhile, the disciples were urging him, saying, “Rabbi, eat.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know about.” 33 So the disciples said to one another, “Has anyone brought him something to eat?”
34 Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and to accomplish his work. 35 Do you not say, ‘There are yet four months, then comes the harvest’? Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.
36 Already the one who reaps is receiving wages and gathering fruit for eternal life, so that sower and reaper may rejoice together. 37 For here the saying holds true, ‘One sows and another reaps.’ 38 I sent you to reap that for which you did not labor. Others have labored, and you have entered into their labor.”
