Bible Ballistics: BBs #53 One Message, One Call????
We believe that Jesus is the only way to God, Jesus said so Himself in John 14:6,
“ Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
If Jesus declared Himself to be ‘THE’ only way, then we have only one message. What are we to do with that message? We are to ‘go ye therefore’, with the message of Jesus’ redeeming work on the cross. Each believer has a call to share, remembering that the power is of God, not us. Let’s look at 2 Corinthians 4:7-9,
“ For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.”
So??? Here’s our shot for the day—It’s God’s message, God’s power, God’s light and God’s strength and protection. Romans 11:36 reminds us how,
“For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen..”
It’s all about JESUS—not about me, so don’t be discouraged but press on and let His light shine through you.
