I do not remember the exact time or place I surrendered my life to Christ. Someone said it does not matter if you do not remember when you were saved as long as you remember you are saved. We have heard of God supernaturally, miraculously appearing to people in dreams and visions, leading them to finding Christ and accepting Him as their Lord and Savior. This is amazing when it happens! But usually, the way people hear about Christ is God uses someone to tell them the Good News of Salvation. Jesus was clear and straightforward to his disciples on what he wanted them to do. The authority was delegated to the disciples to announce the Good News to all. Jesus uses us today as His disciples to spread the Gospel, so that the Lord will be with them and live in them. Saving souls requires that we introduce them to Jesus who is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life." Every Christian is either someone who is being sent to preach the gospel, or we are someone who God uses to help send those who are being sent. Either way, every one of us is called to God’s mission to save lost souls from a Christ-less eternity. God does not want to lose one soul! Whether it is around the world, across the street, or in your household, we must spread the Good News. People need to hear this incredible story of love, sacrifice, and salvation! My personal prayer today is Lord use me to save souls, send me! What about you, have you inspired others to follow Jesus?
"When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick." (Luke 9:1-2)
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20)
"Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. How,then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” (Romans 10: 13-15)
