The Great Commission
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 alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
The only way you can face impossible situations in the face is to believe this verse. ALL Authority in heaven and earth belongs to Jesus, and so when He sends us, His authority is with us. We must remember who He is: Lord of the Universe. Which means, that the same power, that created the universe, that reached into a pile of mud, and made a perfect man, is available to us as we go, we able to reach down into the muck and the mire of the human condition, and make men and women, every whit whole. If we look at the conditions of this war torn, sin ravaged planet any of us, are overwhelmed by the need. Then, we turn 180 degrees, away from the problem, to HIM. Creator of all life. In Him, all things become possible, and there is only one question required as we are faced with the atrocities of life: “Father, what do you want ME to do?”
Some time ago, I was sent a series of videos of the children that were gassed in Syria.
I fell on my face, and wept before God. Yet, I believe God was pleased in this. Looked like the US was going to send troops and bomb the fire out of them, yet I believe heaven has had a better response. I honestly believe that God Himself has marked the evil doers, and that swift justice will be served. I also believe that Holy Spirit will visit Syria, and do what guns, bombs and troops cannot. Shatter Islam, and reveal the love of Jesus that will transform the nation.
Jesus said GO! We either Pack, Pray or Pray but we must GO!
It is a command if we are Christians, the Great Commission, not the Great Omission.
‘Father, as I see the atrocities in the earth, my heart breaks. Children killed, poverty, starvation, and great heartbreak. Father, show me what You would have me to do! Display Your power, and recreate the damage caused by these atrocities, now, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus! Amen!
