Mission field

21 08 2006

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:19-20.

Last night as i was walking Mercy to my place, there was a funeral at the void deck of my apartment, and i commented with a slight sense of regret, that another soul has gone to hell without knowing Jesus as her saviour. Mercy said “How can christians go about their daily lives without the sense of urgency?”

Sometimes, or rather, most of the time, have we christians become so hardened in our spirits that we have forgotten the heartbeat of Christ! The heartbeat of Christianity is evangelism – Telling the world of the good news, making disciples of all nations, teaching them what Christ has commanded us, and baptising them! Oh God, forgive us, for missing the call to mission, right at our doorsteps, with our friends, bosses, colleagues! God gave us that opportune time, divine time to sow the seed and even if we might not be the one to harvest, Lord, you are the Lord of the harvest for you will appoint people to harvest that crop, and Lord use me and Mercy as an instrument to sow and all the work is done by You. Lord, you are looking for clean and willing vessel.

As i was talking to Jac, and Janice and read Jenn’s Blog – hmmph all “J”s. I realised there is another mission field, that’s within the church, the christians, my brothers and sisters in Christ, that Lord, it is time for the church to get real, the mission field is not just to the non-christian world, but Lord, it is re-awakens the church, God’s people to get serious! Shaking off their lukewarmness, even the stagnant growth and Lord, cause Jac to be extreme in her relationship with you, cause Janice to come back to You, and God, shake Jenn up and not just be satisfied with crumbs from the table, but Lord, to come to hear you everyday, to grow leaps and bounds in his intimacy with you and more! Lord, cos of what Jesus has done, his death and resurrection on the Cross, the work of redemption is complete, and Lord, we can now come into your presence in full confidence, no more dipping ourselves in the shallow end of the pool, but to go deep end and walk on water with our eyes fixed on you Jesus! Let your fire consume these hearts for you – Jac, Janice and Jenn! Let them be the Jesus ‘J’s!
