I have heard people say haters motivate them. I thought about that this past week and how the enemy has been trying his best to stop what the Lord has proclaimed for me to do. Every time he takes me down, the Lord pulls me back up. I say to the devil, ha, you lose again! Then I get excited because I know the devil is running scared. Each time the enemy tries and fails, it motivates me. Because it proves the Lord is with me every step of the way! Again I say, Lord, I’m ready, send me!

We sometimes hear stories of God supernaturally, miraculously appearing to people in dreams and visions, which leads them to finding Christ and putting their trust in Him. This is awesome when it happens! But usually the way people hear about Christ is God sends someone like you or I 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 and to go out and make disciples. Today God still sends us as His disciples to spread the Gospel. We can tell them about Jesus who is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” However Jesus is the only one who can save them and then only if they open their hearts and allow Him too by accepting Him as their Lord and Savior. Every Christian is either someone who God’s send, or someone who God uses to help those He have sent. We too, like the original disciples are fishermen of souls. We throw the rod out (plant the seed) and Jesus will reel them in if they allow Him. God doesn’t need our help, just like He didn’t need the original disciples to save us. It is a privilege to be called to help save lost souls from a Christ-less eternity. God does not want to lose one soul! We don’t want our family, friends, not even our enemies to live a life without Christ, and worst not to experience the joy of everlasting life. Whether it is around the world or across the street, there are people who need to hear the Good News. People need to hear this incredible story of love, sacrifice, and salvation! True disciples strive each day to be Christlike and to do that our words and actions must line up with the Word of God. I pray that the Lord blesses us and makes us worthy disciples as we continue the task He gave to His original disciples. My personal prayer today is Lord use me to save souls, send me! What about you, have you inspired others to follow Jesus? Love and Blessings…

“If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32)

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

For, “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 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)
