Vintage message from March 29, 1998.
If we are here because we have relationship with Jesus, then Jesus has given us a call. That’s to go out and instruct men. “Go therefore into all the world making disciples of all nations.” That’s our responsibility… Don’t get stuck in the things of the world, but use the wisdom and instruct many, because understand, there is a time coming on the face of this earth that I believe you and I will be taken away from but I would not wish on my worst enemy…
I just ask, Lord Jesus, that we would find ourselves amongst the wise that Daniel was seeing and not be insincere, but Lord, we would be here this morning because we love You and we love one another and we love the world that You sent us to. I just ask, Lord, that You would touch our hearts, that You would cause us to hunger, to yearn to fulfill that Great Commission… Let me do my part. Cause me to do my part. Cause me, Lord, to reach out beyond these walls as I run into people throughout my day that I would be sharing Your love, Your Word, the testimony of what You’ve done in my life… I just ask, Lord, that there would be no one in my sphere of influence who would ever stand before You and say that, “I didn’t know.” Cause me, Lord, to be vocal, outspoken, sticking out in a crowd always. I just ask that for each one of us here today, that we’d stick out in a crowd. That people would know what we believe and, Lord, that we might find opportunity to share with them.
