The Master Plan of Evangelism - Epilogue (The Master and Your Plan)!
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, says the Lord, who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty. (Rev. 1:8)
Life Has a Plan
What is the plan of your life? Everyone has to live by some plan. The plan is the organizing principle around which the aim of life is carried out. We may not be conscious of the plan in every action, or even know that we have a plan, but nonetheless our actions invariably unfold some kind of a pattern at the center of things.
When we actually get right down to it, and try to see our objective and how we are going about it to achieve it, what we discover may not be very satisfying. But an honest appraisal should cause us all to be more concerned for our calling, at least for those who believe Jesus' way is the rule by which every action should be tested.
It might well be that some cherished plans of our own making may have to be redirected, or perhaps abandoned altogether. Equally agonizing may be the adjustment of the congregation to the Master's view of the ministry. In all probability our whole concept of success will have to be reevaluated. Nevertheless, if the principles outlined here have any validity at all, they should be understood as guidelines for action. It is only as they are applied to the everyday work of living now that they have any real significance for our lives. To regard them as true means that they must be relevant.
Is This Your Vision?
The world is desperately seeking someone to follow. That they will follow someone is certain, but will that person be one who knows the way of Christ, or will he or she be one like themselves leading them only on to greater darkness?
This is the decisive question of our plan of life. The relevance of all that we do waits on its verdict, and in turn, the destiny of the multitudes hangs in the balance.
The world is desperately seeking someone to follow.
My dear friends. If the world at-large does not follow Jesus through our evangelistic efforts, they are going to end up following someone else that will very likely send them down a road they don't want to really travel on. What would our lives be like if Jesus didn't round up the twelve disciples, disciple them, and send them into the four corners of the world?What if the disciples decided to follow their own way of life and chose not to evangelize to the lost and dying of their time? I can assure every single person that reads the posts of Christian Living that our lack of efforts to evangelize the lost and dying of our times today will result in my souls going to hell. Jesus has given us a mandate over 2000 years ago. That mandate is to go into the four corners of the world to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Given the resources that God has readily given to us, we have no excuses. We can travel the world by plane in a matter of hours. With access to internet, all we need to do is send a message at the click of a button. ALL OF US have a responsibility before God to continue to carry out the message that His Son has done and millions of souls have done since then. No more excuses friends. Let's keep on working where God has us and win as many souls for Christ as possible!
