Good Morning my friends,
When the Standard Oil Company was looking for a representative in the Far East, they approached a missionary and offered him $10,000. He turned down the offer. They raised it to $25,000, and he turned it down again. They raised it to $50,000, and he rejected it once more.
“What’s wrong?” they asked.
He replied, “Your price is all right, but your job is too small.” God called him to be a missionary, and anything else was not worthy of his consideration.
What would we be for Jesus Christ? Most Christians are not called to be missionaries or preachers, but they are called to follow Christ. They are called to be faithful wherever He puts them–in school, in the home, in the factory or office, in the neighborhood and nation. They are called to be controlled by the Spirit and to bear the fruit of the Spirit. They are called to be Christ’s ambassadors wherever God puts them. Nothing less than God’s call is worthy of our consideration.
“So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple.“ (Luke 14:33)
Missionaries are amazing people. The things they do to serve Christ go unnoticed by the general public most of the time. The general public would probably consider the refusal to accept $10-50k crazy especially to live in the accommodations they were probably going to be living in but serving Christ is about more than money. How much is a lost soul worth? What I mean if you knew a family member or best friend was headed for hell, what would you pay for them to seek salvation? Missionaries , pastors, & evangelist believe a lost soul is priceless.. Meaning that they wouldn’t accept any amount of money to turn their back on all the lost in the world.
Can you imagine how this world would be if everyone chose to share Christ with all their friends, all their family and all the people at work? Many church goers never share Christ. You would never know they have a relationship with Christ.
Sharing your testimony with your family, friends & colleagues shouldn’t be a problem.. You are just planting the seed. God will cultivate the seed and in all likelihood has already been working on their heart anyway…
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU… Make the decision to plant some seeds today with your friends & colleagues..
I hope that you all have a TERRIFIC day.. Blessings & much love….D
ALWAYS…..Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!!
