Two days ago, one of the girls that I had discipled in Christ went to be with the Lord. It is deeply sad, but I rejoice that she ran the race victoriously because Jesus had kept her till the end. Before she passed on, she had also led others to Jesus.
She is very dear to me and I will miss her. But it consoles me knowing that she is in God’s hands now. Sickness and pain can no longer reach her there. She can now see Jesus face-to-face, be embraced by Him, and be with Him forever. All because Jesus died for her and she accepted Him into her life when she heard the Gospel.
The World’s Greatest Need
If we would only see past this world and see eternity for what it really is, it will fire us up to keep interceding for and preaching the Gospel to the lost especially if they are our loved ones and friends. This is because when we will all face God on judgment day, they will ask us one question: “Why didn’t you tell me about Jesus?”
The Gospel needs to be preached. We received it when we heard it for free. We ought to share it with others as well unless we don’t have an understanding of how precious this gift is.
2 Corinthians 5:18–20 says,
All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
God has given us the ministry of reconciliation. We may not see it but the world needs Jesus and they need to hear about what He has done for them.
Salvation does not consist only of being saved from hell but also saved from living a life of defeat. It is the power of God that enables people to live victoriously, in peace, joy, hope, blessings, etc.
