More than ever before, there is an urgent need to share the life transforming message of the gospel with one another, and indeed all peoples and nations. This need stems from the increasing moral decadence in our societies, and the replacement of Godly conducts and guidance with politically motivated morally depraved social norms. A situation which has dire consequences, especially on family life, the larger society and on our eternity.
Hence, the need to have the mind of Paul in Romans 10:9-18. His, is the mind of Jesus himself who by choosing and calling the twelve apostles (Matthew 4:18-22), invited us to collaborate also in his saving mission (Matthew 5:14-16). But how have we fared in this task during thisyear? How many of our friends and/or family members have we succeeded in bringing to Jesus, or to keep Godly, and/or fervent? Am I too ashamed or too lazy or scared to stand out morally, and to stand with Christ in the presence of my family, friends and neighbours?
My dear friend, the upcoming season of Advent is a time of preparation for the great encounter with Jesus at Christmas, but most importantly at our death whenever that may be. May we then strive through words and deeds to ready everyone around us for that great encounter with Jesus.
Scripture Passages For Today: Romans 10:9-18; Psalm 18(19):2-5; Matthew 4:19; Matthew 4:18-22
