WHO SHALL GO FOR US?
Memorise:
Also I heard the voice of the Lord,
saying, Whom shall I send, and who
will go for us? Then said I, Here am
I; send me.
Isaiah 6:8
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Hebrews 9-10;
Psalm 25
Read: Mark 16:15-16
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into
all the world, and preach the gospel
to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized
shall be saved; but he that believeth
not shall be damned.
Message
God needs men and women who
have found the saving grace of our
Lord Jesus Christ to go out in search
of lost souls. He laid down an
example for us in Genesis 3:9 where
He went looking for Adam in the
Garden of Eden after the fall. God is
looking for people to win street boys
and girls, pimps, hardened criminals,
robbers, social miscreants, drug
dealers, prostitutes, etc. God is
looking for those who are highly
anointed to bring these unreached
groups into His kingdom. We must
target people who are the brains
behind insecurity in our societies if
we really desire security of lives and
property. God, like in the days of
Isaiah the prophet, is looking for
highly anointed people to send to
nations that are resistant to the
gospel. We need people who can
minister in societies that are
dominated by atheists, hard-core
Muslims, secularists, humanists as
well as those who are sold out to the
occult. God needs missionaries who
are powerfully anointed to go for
Him and rescue perishing souls
around the world. The Church needs
believers who have what it takes to
go out there and heal the sick, cast
out demons and deliver the
oppressed in the Name of Jesus
Christ. God is asking passionately,
“Who shall I send, who shall go for
us?” Are you highly anointed? If your
answer is yes, then say to Him: “Here
am I, send me”. The anointing which
God is bringing your way through this
devotional is not meant for frivolities,
it is meant to meet the needs of the
assignment God has for you.
When my birthday approaches,
people ask me time and again: “What
do you desire as a gift for your
birthday?” I have always replied:
“Souls”. The greatest gift anyone can
ever give me is the salvation of
multitude of souls. The salvation of
souls not only brings joy to me but
also to my Daddy. Go all the way to
win souls if you want to please God.
The Bible in Ezekiel 3:18 says,
“When I say unto the wicked, Thou
shalt surely die; and thou givest him
not warning, nor speakest to warn
the wicked from his wicked way, to
save his life; the same wicked man
shall die in his iniquity; but his blood
will I require at thine hand.”
The implication of this scripture is
that some believers may be in danger
of hell, not because they directly
commit the so-called popular sins,
but because of the sin of omission.
Failure to go all out to evangelise is
a sin of omission. The Lord
consistently is asking: “Who will go
for us?” Let your answer be: “Here
am I, send me”. You shall be mightily
rewarded for it.
Action Point:
Draw out a personal soul-winning
programme for yourself and better
still, for your family and work out its
execution without further delay.
