Name me a world event. And more than likely, disasters, tragedies and crises will come right on top. As members of the human race, we get so uncomfortable and stricken at the thought of another’s suffering that nothing more will galvanise us to give besides the cause of saving a life.
What would be on top of God’s mind as a world event? Evangelism of the world is the main event, Rev Anthony Mangun had supposed. “You will give for a physical man, but how about a lost world?” This line rang out as he delivers his message on our Missions Sunday. How about a lost world that has no ability to save themselves?
“This mission service is not just about money, however, but man and women that have laid themselves at the altar who will do the work of God,” Rev Mangun then deplored. Will you be God’s earth partner and invest in the eternal value of one’s soul?
Men and women of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) had gone before us, ceasing not day or night, weeping in the streets. Lest they became lost themselves with the blood in their hands, they went from house to house, beginning to do and teach.
Now in the window of the latter rain, we are in a season when God is shaking us in evangelism as there is going to be a great outpouring of the Holy Spirit. With that, there is a great call to sell out everything that we’ve had and follow Christ.
Rev Mangun reiterates that everybody has a ministry and a part to play with their gifting, and they need to not hold back and double their talents. Give of yourself as you feel led, even when no one is telling you to do it (Genesis 14:20), and God will bless it.
For those who are still unsure of what your mission is, here’s what rounds it up. “Every ministry is a 10. Who turned on the lights this Sunday morning? Who set up these equipment? A minister of the gospel of Christ!” Rev Mangun said. “Recognise the day that when your time is no more, will you be able to say you are pure from the blood of all men? That’s the mission.”
As a child of God, you would not want to miss out on the greatest world event. And you do have a great part to play in it.
