Congratulations to all our cell leaders for the great start to the 3rd term of 2014. Let's keep up this great work.
Acts 20:24 But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
This is the royal commission to serve God on the earth. Being a Christian includes being sent into the world as a representative of Jesus Christ. John 20:21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
The Five purposes God created us for;
1. To love Him.
2. To be part of His family.
3. To become like Him.
4. To serve Him.
5. To tell others about him.
Jesus calls us to come to Him but also to go for Him. Mark 16:15
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. This is not the great suggestion but the great commission to every believer. It is harvest time. Jesus said we must pray for the labourers. That means many believers are disobedient to obey the command of Jesus Christ.
It is a wonderful privilege to work with God and to represent Him here on earth. Paul the apostle calls us, co-labourers and says, we are workers together with God. 2 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. Telling others how they can have eternal life is the greatest thing you can do for them. We have the greatest news in the world and sharing it is the greatest kindness you can show to anyone. Jesus Christ is the only one who can save people. Everyone needs our Loving Jesus.
The gospel will impact the eternal destiny of people. No other job can do that for people. John 9:4-5 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
By sharing the gospel with others, you will give your life great meaning. William James said, "The best use of life is to spend it for something that outlasts itself." Everything else will vanish and perish but the Kingdom of God will last forever. You life must make an eternal factor in someone else's life.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
1. Pray for more cell members to be bold to speak for Jesus.
2. Pray for the cell to invite more unsaved people to the meeting.
3. Pray for passion to consume us and zeal to share it.
