1 Corinthians 9:16-19
Psalm 68:11 The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.
Whether the people believe it or not, preach the word. All the messages on removal of jewelries, make ups, hair attachments, women trousers etc. for outward purification are forever valid, so continue preaching them.
The messages on marriage restitution has not changed.
Polygamy, divorce or remarriage while first lawful husband or wife is still alive is still a sin; so continue to preach them whether people believe or not.
You cannot stop preaching the truth because of the opinion of contrary men. In preaching the truth is the salvation of souls. If you have left it or you have started to compromise, you must go back to it.
The commission you have received is the same today as the day you first received it. It is the commission of preaching the truth of the gospel and it has not changed. Go and preach it without respect to persons. You too must continue to live by it.
Jonah 1:1-3 1 Now the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, 2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before Me. 3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the LORD.
In this scripture, we see how Jonah ran away from his commission. He backslid from the presence of God. The Lord went after him and brought circumstances to arrest him. Jonah repented and went back to his abandoned assignment. Perhaps you too had abandoned the assignment God gave to you. Now, go back to evangelism. Go back to soul winning and bring the people to Jesus.
Go and make believers to experience the second touch and become holy. Carry the evangelism materials at your disposal and do this work for Jesus. They laughed at you and challenged you the last time; go back with the same materials. It is the commission God gave to you, don't be discouraged for He will go with you to see to its ultimate performance. Those appointed unto eternal life will believe and be saved. Hallelujah!
Thought for the day:
Whoever abandons the work of Jesus has taken up employment with Satan.
Song for the day:
When He calls me I will answer….
Bible reading for the day:
Deuteronomy 14-16; Mark 13:14-37
