Being a disciple of Jesus Christ – Prayer for September 23. Praise the Lord everybody! The largest organized military invasion was D-Day during World War II, but the offensive God has planned for these last days far overshadows anything man could ever come up with and we are GROUND ZERO.
Bible Verse for Today
Jesus told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” (Luke 10:2)
The world thinks of ground zero as the World Trade Center of 911. The dictionary says ground zero is: “The center of rapid or intense development or change.”
Two thousand years ago twelve men turned the world upside down, it was the beginning of a movement that would change the world. Today We are ground zero for the biggest harvest season ever faced by the body of Christ. We are those laborers, it is time for God’s people to leave their cozy comfort zones and carry out God’s command of the great commission.
We can no longer count on the church up the street to carry out the mission that God has called us all to do. Wherever God has planted us we must be ground zero for whatever He has planned for that area.
The world in its search for love, peace, forgiveness, and salvation should be able to see through us that Christ is the answer, not welfare, Medicaid, the lotto, or a hot streak in Las Vegas. It may sound cliched to some, but Jesus is the answer for the world today and we are His instruments of change and God likes His instruments to be holy and set apart to Him, wholly dependent on God.
How can the world trust God if His own people don’t fully trust Him? How can we lead people to Christ when we are only halfheartedly following him?
Being a disciple of Jesus Christ is great joy and responsibility
We are His disciples! We should be healing people with our shadows and bringing back people from the dead, don’t believe for a second that it was only for the early church. It was for such a time as this!
The enemy knows that his time is short, and he tries to lead as many souls as possible to hell. But our job is to lead as many people as possible to Christ and to salvation. We are responsible for making a difference in our environment – through prayer, through our lives, and through actively proclaiming the gospel.
Brothers and sisters let us not live depending on others to carry our load. Let’s each live our lives with a “We are ground zero” mindset, doing our best to effect as much positive change in our environments as possible. God bless you all.
