WHAT ONE DOES FOR GOD WILL LAST
Now that our annual celebration of Easter is past, we must continue the work until he comes. How can one do this? The best way is to let your light shine today in your world and let Jesus lead you to loving and helping those who are in need.
After Jesus resurrection he told them to go and tarry in Jerusalem. Some 40 days later we find 120 of them together in the upper room when the Holy Ghost descended upon them and they were all filled and began to speak in tongues, The people were amazed as they heard their language being spoken and wanted to know what was going on.
Peter stood up and began to take them back to what had been written and led them thru the word up to the present day. The word pierced their heart and they ask “what they must do to be saved.” Now Peter, the one who denied he knew Christ three times said “repent and be baptized every one of you in name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins…”
Wow! What a difference in Peter after receiving the Holy Ghost. He spoke with boldness and about 3000 was added to the church that day. When one gets hold of Christ and Christ gets hold of you your world will be turned upside down and you too will be able to proclaim Jesus and win the lost to the Lord.
No, you can’t do it on your own, its takes the spirit of God touching you and piercing hearts as you proclaim “repent.” You are the vessel that God wants to use. Acts 1:8 says “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
Your Jerusalem is your town, your job, your family, your neighbors and friends. When God gets hold of you and you yield to the Holy Ghost no one knows where he may lead you to be a witness.
Lord, I cry out today to let us witness and be about the work you left us to do. Lord, help us to have open hearts and minds to win the lost and celebrate with the angels in heaven when one receives you.
“If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1John 1:9
