EVANGELIZE

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL
DATE: THURSDAY 18TH MARCH 2021.
THEME: EVANGELIZE.
MEMORISE:
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Matthew 28:19
READ: Matthew 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
MESSAGE:
The charge to win souls is not a suggestion it is a command. In other words, it is not negotiable. Every true believer must carry a burning desire and burden to reach out to the unsaved. If you love Jesus you will preach His gospel to the lost because He does not desire the death of sinners, He wants every sinner saved (Ezekiel 18:23).
“And everyone that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” Matthew 19:29
From the passage above, we see that God will generously reward everyone who participates in evangelism because they are in partnership with Him. Not everybody can be a full-time evangelist, but in your little corner, you are to win souls, as well as supporting and praying for the full-time evangelists risking their lives to obey God’s mandate of preaching to the unsaved souls, visiting their families and encouraging them financially. The work of missions is dear to God’s heart and ignoring it is ignoring Him.
“At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he cry against thee unto the Lord, and it be sin unto thee.” Deuteronomy 24:15
God said you should not owe anyone their wages and 1Corinthians 3:8-9 says those who are involved with missions are His laborers. In other words, the moment you begin evangelizing, your name enters His payroll and believe me honestly, He will never owe you your wages. What exactly is your wage as an evangelist?
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15 :16
The wage of an evangelist is a blank cheque from the richest being in the entire universe. If I were you, I would decide today to make soul-winning my lifestyle.
ACTION POINT:
Pick up your phone and call somebody to tell them about Jesus Christ now and make this a habit.
