Haven’t we slept enough? Haven’t we wasted enough time chasing shadows? Haven’t we isolated the gift of God in us? What next?
While we slept, souls perished. While we were engrossed with vanity, evil multiplied. While we were blinded with fame and vain glory, we lost the target and vision. The assignment is yet to be accomplished because of our negligence.
Yet, the Lord, knowing we have divagated from the purpose, is still compelling us to awaken to our calling. He hasn’t given up on our capability. He still wants to use us to accomplish this vision.
“Then said He unto His disciples, the harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth labourers into His harvest.” Matt 9:37-38 KJV
“Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.” 1Timothy 4:14 KJV
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good work, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matt 5: 14-16 KJV
What gift have you been given? It’s time to utilize them for the Kingdom’s work. Are you a writer? Write to harvest the ripe souls and recover the lost. Write to edify and not to feed the souls with junk.
Do you have the gift of singing? Sing to awaken the minds of believers and win the lost sheep. Are you an evangelist, it’s time to move out and hunt for the abandoned souls and recover them for the Saviour.
Whatever it is you are commissioned to do, do it now, for a time is coming when you won’t be able to do them. Remember, we all will stand before our Maker and give account of what we did while on earth.
