TOPIC: Make Christ Known

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. Matt 28:19-20 (NKJV)

Beloved, I come to remind you that God does not want you to use your faith only to receive material blessings. He wants you to also use your faith to snatch people out of the hands of the devil. Life is not all about what to eat, drink or put on. It is all about transforming lives. The time is gone when pastors come and preach you happy every Sunday whilst you just sit down and all you leave the church with, is: “That was a great service”. No! It is time to roll up your sleeves and get to work.

Today, people live as if Jesus would never come back again. So, necessity is laid on us all as believers to do all we can to snatch them from hell. The bell of eternity is ringing, and you know like I know that any person who lives his or her life without Christ is headed for eternal damnation except they repent.

Beloved, that should make you shudder and do something. Make Christ known in your neighbourhood, office or marketplace. Be assured that as you labour in His vineyard, He will also labour in your vineyard. Like I would always say, and it bears repetition, this is not about numbers, it is much more. How will you feel if you get to heaven and all your neighbours are in hell? How will you feel when you look through the banisters of heaven and see your siblings, your loved ones, your colleagues in hell? It is not enough to go to heaven; you have a responsibility to take as many as possible with you to heaven. We do not have the promise of tomorrow. So, I implore you to work while it is day, for the night comes when no one can work.
