Ask the Lord

Posted on

Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

Matthew 9:38

Ask the Lord to open doors to bring Christ to people. Pointing people to Christ is what Christians are called by to do, because we are the light in this world. If Christians don’t bring Christ to people, then who? We are created to help people to find salvation in Christ, and it is the most rewarding thing we can do in this life.

A Christian is not self-centered, but they are God and others centered, just a Jesus did what the Father called him to do, and He brought salvation to everyone he spoke to. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” (Matthew 4:19) Jesus told his apostles they would be fisher of people, which means they would preach the truth and bring salvation to people. Christians need to tell people the Truth to overcome Satan’s lies.

The purpose of being a Christian is to tell people about salvation through Christ; because we care about lost souls and their eternal life. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. (Matthew 5:14) We are light in this world which means we reflect Christ to everyone and help them find the narrow road to Heaven.

We can invite people to church, we can hand out Biblical literature, and offer a Bible study; but we always show kindness with a caring heart. We pray that the Lord will open doors to where we can minister to lost souls, telling them about Christ. But we must have a heart that cares about lost souls, especially people close to us. As we minister to people, bringing them the Word, the Lord puts his love into our heart, and love in the heart is what motivates us to bring people to Christ, because we care about everyone, especially people who have been deceived by Satan.

For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. (Romans 8:29) When we accept Christ as our Lord a Savior, we are predestined to conform to the image of His Son. How can be like Jesus if we don’t care about lost souls, but we pray and ask the Lord to guide us to bring Christ to people. This is how we conform to the image of his son.
As Satan is turning the world against Christians, in some parts of the world we bring Christ to people in privacy, or we might end up in jail. But we can always show others the fruit of the Spirit, with a kind and caring heart. Christ will always find people to help and how we can tell them about Christ in secret.

Today be a light for Christ and show kindness and caring heart to everyone.

Prayer: Father open doors to where can tell others about Christ. In Jesus name, Amen
