Scripture Passage: Acts 8:26
We, as Christians, have been sent on a mission to share the Gospel anywhere and everywhere God calls us to go. Where is anywhere and everywhere for you? Have you ever said in your heart, "Wherever He leads, I'll go"? We should be able to say this and mean it, without fear or hesitation.
God has a plan for us and God will use us if we will let Him. How can we know where God wants us to go?
First, we must perceive the call of God. God has many ways to speak to us, through prayer, the Holy Spirit, angels and others. We must get rid of our selfishness, our pride, our ambitions, and be ready to be filled by God. And what God fills, He uses.
We must preach the Gospel, simply and clearly, as according to Jesus Christ. Adrian Rogers says, “The Gospel is simply glorious and gloriously simple.” The Gospel, simply put, is three statements:
- “I am a sinner.”
- “Christ died for my sins.”
- “I am saved by grace, through faith.”
Finally, we must practice the commands of God. The Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 says, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”
Baptism is our way of showing our salvation. A true baptism follows a true salvation. Adrian Rogers says, “If we are real missionaries, we're going to receive the call of God, preach the Christ of God and practice the commands of God.”
Apply it to your life
Are you willing to say to God, “Wherever you lead, I’ll go”? If there was ever a time we ought to say it, it is now.
