Consider Billy Graham, David Wilkerson, Joyce Meyer, Priscilla Shirer, and Lysa TerKeurst. They’ve spread the message of salvation in Jesus Christ to people who are walking in sin and in their own ways, not God’s. They’ve been mouthpieces to sound warnings and encourage men and women—even children—to turn toward Jesus.
Consider also the Sunday School teacher, a janitor at work, the woman or man who conducts Bible studies in prison, the country preacher, parents, grandparents, artists, or teachers called to walk the halls of and instruct in schools daily. Each houses a message, whether widely offered in the public eye or tucked somewhere behind the scenes, one-on-one.
I’ve personally been ministered to and encouraged in the Lord by several noted above. In fact, I asked Jesus to forgive my sins and be my Savior due to the fervency of a messenger like Isaiah. It required many conversations and tenacity on her part, but I thank God for my pastor’s wife at a small country church in Newnan, Georgia. Because of her desire to spread the message of Jesus Christ, I will enter heaven for eternity.
(See these scriptures for more on salvation if you have questions or want this assurance of heaven.)
How about you, believer? If you’re saved, you carry God’s message. Whom shall He send? You?
Whether small reach or large audience, this dying world needs the everlasting love of Jesus.
Whom will go and deliver the message?
Are you willing to whisper, Here I am, Lord?
