God is Not Just for You, He is for Everyone

Matthew 22:14 says, “Many are called, but few are chosen.” Many are invited, yet not all people accept that invitation. Many are offered, but a few of them actually accepted it. Many hear, yet few listen. Many see, yet few understand.

God brought us into this world for an individual purpose and a collective purpose that all Christians must carry out. That purpose is sharing the powerful word of God that saved you. God is not for you alone. He made everyone, so that everyone could have Him. It is your duty to carry out that wish of His. How can we ever hide the love of God? How can we hide the abundant grace He has placed upon our lives? Evangelizing is actively and publicly sharing the word of God with the intention of saving someone just as God saved you. If God embraces you and defends you as His beloved son or daughter, why not embrace Him as your Lord, master and father?

Every soul you save means so much to not only God, but this earth too. The Bible says that for every soul that is saved, all of Heaven rejoices. In Luke 23:34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Jesus wasn't mad about being mocked or crucified. He wasn't cursing out the people who cursed him. All throughout his life, He suffered because He was doing the will of God. But not once… not after the many lashes He received… not after all the betrayal He endured, He never hesitated to preach the word of His wonderful father. While He was on the cross He was so focused on souls, our souls. He was focused on people repenting so that God would forgive them. Yes, Jesus did miracles, He followed God's will, He fasted and prayed, but none of that can compare to His crucifixion - when He saved souls. The most important and notable thing He did was sacrifice Himself on the cross for us. On the day of Pentecost, after the disciples received the gift of tongues the first thing they did was talk about repentance, and after that they went on to save 3000 souls. They did not boast about being the first to receive the gift of tongues, but they went out to preach the gospel as boldly as a lion to save souls for God.

John 21:15-17 says “When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?’ ‘Yes, Lord,’ he said, ‘you know that I love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Feed my lambs.’ Again Jesus said, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ He answered, ‘Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Take care of my sheep.’ The third time he said to him, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, ‘Do you love me?’ He said, ‘Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Feed my sheep.’”

In Matthew 4:4 Jesus said to Satan that “Man cannot live on bread alone but people need every word that comes out of God’s mouth.” In Jeremiah 15:16, Jeremiah said to the Lord that “When God’s word came, he ate them; they were his joy and his heart’s delight” Jeremiah fed off of God’s word and from it came joy and delight. Jesus even said that man can not live by bread alone. Many people can’t and don’t understand this type of feeling. They are living without the Word. It should bother you that you are enjoying God’s Word knowing that your future is in Heaven, yet someone else is on their way to Hell. The Bible says the pathway to Hell is wide, but the pathway to Heaven is narrow. This is because many people fail to tell others about God. Many people watch instead of taking action. There was a time where God left the ninety-nine to find and save that one sheep… to save you. It is your time to also find the many sheep that have lost their way. Whether it's a friend or family member, their blood could possibly be on your hands, you have the chance to keep them from going to Hell. You cannot be a Christian with the power to save and deliver someone yet still be so blind to other people's situations and watch them throw their lives away.

Evangelizing isn’t always easy. It takes boldness and confidence to go against the majority of people and stand up for what you believe in. But it only takes the power of God and prayer to overcome that. There will be people who are stubborn. There will be people who don’t listen. But pray for them. It’s better to try, than to not try at all. Take your time and don’t force anything on anyone. Make them feel comfortable. Make them feel like it is a conversation, not a lecture. Let God guide you. Ask God to lead you.

As you are reading this, I want you to repeat this prayer: “Father, how lucky am I to have received your grace and your salvation. Lord you left the ninety-nine to find me. You turned me into something, when I was nothing but a pile of dust. You gave me life, you gave me meaning. You sent your only begotten son to save me… to save the world. Lord grant me the confidence and boldness to speak out and preach the gospel. Even though I may be persecuted, even though I will be cursed, even though I may suffer like Jesus did, I know that in the end, You will reward me for doing what You have commanded me to do. May people feel Your joy, love, and comfort because of me. Help me. Let Your will be done and not mine. Thank you for an answered prayer. Amen.”
