STEADFAST AS A VESSEL

Jesus came to this earth to serve and save us. We as believer and disciple of Christ, once we are reborn, are called to serve and to save others just like Jesus did. He died for all, not for some, not for Jewish only or only for those who think they are not sinners. He died for us because we are sinners and we did not realize that we were on our way to eternal death and could not save ourselves. It is our purpose to take the heart of God and make it ours to save others from their perished way.

Many believers give up easily in doing good, spreading the Gospel, trying to save others because they found out that non-believers are hard to change and even refuse the existence of Jesus. They refuse the one truly good thing that can save them and we lose heart in trying to save them. We should realize that we can’t change people, only God can and even then, God still give freedom to people to make their choices.
Maybe we asked why there are certain people that we have gone above and beyond but still do not change. Some even blame God for it. We have to realize, we are stubborn and it’s our choices that reject God. God is a loving, gentle and merciful God. He doesn’t force anyone to accept Him but for those who do accept Him, then anointing, love and miracles are available for them.

We have to keep serving with all of our heart. Jesus was rejected by millions of people even though He came to save them but He would never stop trying to reach them so that they all can be saved. We should never be discouraged if we haven’t seen the fruit of our ministry yet, that should push us to seek Him even more and ask for His guidance so that we know the right time and moment to save those who has been rejecting Jesus and we move on to others who need salvation.

Stay diligence and full of hope in our ministry because we hold on to God’s promises that the sharing of the Gospel and our ministry in the name of Jesus will never come back void. His words are living words and powerful and it will accomplish what it set out to do. We might not see it right away but never stop praying and everything will be made beautiful in God’s time.

2 Timothy 2:24-26 (NKJV)
24 And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient, 25 in humility correcting those who are in opposition, if God perhaps will grant them repentance, so that they may know the truth, 26 and that they may come to their senses and escape the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him to do his will.

Daily prayer
Lord Jesus, make Your heart be my heart. Let Your desire to save all be my desire. Give me strength so that I will never lose heart but grow even stronger to save as many as I can during my walk on this earth. Lord, guide me and give me wisdom to know when, whom to save and what to share to those who need salvation. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
