MFM Daily Devotional 24 November 2023 MESSAGE
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came down to win souls and reconcile all men to His Father in heaven. He is the first evangelist that came and taught us true evangelism and how we ought to fish for men. Any Christian who pushes soul winning aside because he claims he is not called as an evangelist has just broken the heart of God.
In all the five offices (apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, teacher) given to men to edify the church, evangelism is at the centre. The evangelist goes out to bring people into the church; he goes into the camp of the devil to deliver captives out of their captivity and bring them into the light of Christ. The apostle oversees the church, the prophet tells people the mind of God, the evangelist wins souls into the Kingdom of God and also leads them to the house of God, the pastor watches over the flock and the teacher teaches them the truth of the gospel in preparation of the coming of Christ though Jesus has ascended.
He continues the work of evangelism by strengthening us in the midst of trials and challenges, loving us and remaining faithful even when we do not deserve it and preaching through His servants to remind us of His coming. Beloved, you too must be like Jesus and begin this good work of evangelism for Christ. If you appreciate all that God has done for you through the death of Jesus, show it to your friends and as many that are willing to accept the truth in all your ways.
Through your character, the way you handle conflicts, your attitude in the face of troubles, your academic excellence, your dressing, your spiritual life etc. anywhere you are, carry this consciousness, that you are an ambassador of Christ. When this mind is in you, everything becomes an opportunity to win souls for Christ.
Use your talent, creativity, energy and all other resources to win souls for Christ. Give all to God today for the progress of His Kingdom and you too shall remain saved. God bless you.
