Salvation is a Participative Sport, So Get in or Stay in the Game!
The primary function of disciples is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Sheep beget Sheep, we are called to Follow the Word of the Lord, and to spread His Agenda in the Land. Often times, many "Christians think that this is a job for the ones with titles. Apostles, Preachers, Evangelist, Minister, Teachers etc. However that isn't the case. We who confess Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, are capable of being a light to someone, at some point in time. We are all called to be witnesses. That isn't just a position with a mike in our hands, we can be witnesses on or in:
The School or Campus Grounds
The Play Yard or Gym
Supermarket or Parking Lots
Your favorite Deli or Restaurant
In Our Homes
To our Family and Friends
Before our Enemies and those who despitefully use us
The List can go on and on. But my question to you today is, Are You In The Game? Don't just be a hearer, be a doer. Where are your results of being a Christian? Where are your Fruits. Where are your results? If you aren't producing, the word of God says, the branch (Ye are the Branches) are cast into the fire.
There are many who sit on the side lines and watch or wait for others to do their thing. God is waiting for you to do your thing. There are gifts and talents that only you can bring to the table. You are like a fingerprint or snowflake, none are designed alike. Is Your Name on the Roll? do you possess what you confess? Are You In the Game to Win? or be one of the crowd?
Let your Light Shine before men, that they may ask you... What Must I do to be Saved, or Christ Like? What must I do to have the peace, joy and assurance that heaven belongs to me? Who are you effecting today? Is your Life/lifestyle making a positive impact on others? Can someone follow your life/lifestyle and hear Well Done my Good and Faithful Servant at the end of the day? or are we Playing Church and Deceiving ourselves. There is more to this than just looking the part, you can buy a jersey, but are you on the team?
We have been given instructions on how to play this game, Mark 16:15-16 states And Jesus said to them ______(put your name here) Go Ye into all the world.. (Your Territory and space.) and preach the gospel to every creature. (Tell others about Jesus Christ and what he did for you and can do for others) actions are needed here....) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved. (Yes there is a Heaven and a Hell) But he that believeth not shall be damned. God doesn't send us to Hell, we choose by our actions to either be in the game or not be in the game. What Team are you on today? Who shall be able to stand?
