but he said to them, “I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose.”
Luke 4:43 ESV
Yes, you are sent with the same purpose, to be a witness of Jesus Christ to the world for the glory of God.
Mark 16:15 ESV
And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.
Yes, it is your purpose not to just sit in the pews of religious practice, but to witness, to share your testimony with the world. To go forth and make students of the nations and to baptize in His name.
Jeremiah 1:7-8 ESV
But the Lord said to me, “Do not say, ‘I am only a youth’; for to all to whom I send you, you shall go, and whatever I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you to deliver you, declares the Lord.
We are not meant to remain babes in Christ forever, by now many of you should have been weaned from the milk and should be teaching and discipling others in the truth of this Word of God – but how many are practicing religion instead of walking in the Holy Spirit? How many know about God but do not know God?
Acts 1:8 ESV
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
Where is your power, friend? Where is your faith to step out of the boat and onto the waters and to live a new life sharing the Good News of the gospel to the ends of the earth?
Matthew 5:16 ESV
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Let your light shine, friends. Our if you have no light, if you have no oil in your lamp, then pay now while there is still time that you will be anointed by the Holy Spirit of Christ and that your spiritual heart will flow with the living waters of eternal life. Do not be satisfied with darkness and death surrounding your life. Do not listen to the lies of the enemy who seek to distract you from your purpose.
Matthew 28:18-20 ESV
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
This is for you, yes, you. Receive His anointing, understand your calling and purpose, and go forth.
And if you say, “I do not know how” –
I tell you the words of Christ who lives in me, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
