Now Hear This!

Are you a Christian?  You’re hired!

Text for Today – Micah 6:1 – Hear ye now what the LORD saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice.

Alright, here’s the story.  God sent Jesus.  Jesus suffered.  He fulfilled the Isaiah prophecy of redemption.  He was raised from the dead on the third day, ascended to heaven, applied His blood to the heavenly vessels of worship, set those in paradise free, took them to heaven with Him, sat down on the right hand of God, and now lives to intercede for us.  Holy Spirit came to bring about the new birth, fill us with Himself, and empower us as sons of God in the earth.  NOW HEAR THIS!  His work for this age is complete.

Now it’s our turn.  The work has been passed to us.  He has given us the power of attorney to use His Name.  He has given us His faith, authored and finished, for our use.  He has brought us into unalterable covenant, made us His heirs, joint-heirs with Jesus, and kings and priests in this world.  All power is now in our hands.  NOW HEAR THIS!  The job is yours.

Multitudes still have not heard an adequate witness of the Gospel.  There are multitudes who are sick, broken, bound, diseased, poverty stricken, and still captive by the enemy.  You and I are their only hope.  Who will go to and among them for the Lord?  Who will speak His Truth to them?  Who will do His works before and among them?  Who will show forth His might power to and among them?  NOW HEAR THIS!  YOU!

You and I are the called ones.  You and I are the anointed ones.  You and I are the sent ones.  You and I are His ambassadors.  You and I are His personal agents in this present world.  You and I are the empowered ones.  You and I are His chosen generation.  You and I are His royal priesthood.  You and I are His holy nation.  You and I are His peculiar people.  You and I are to do the same and greater works than Jesus did in this earth.  You and I; not someone else, not the preacher, not the professional minister; you and I.  NOW HEAR THIS!  GET BUSY!
