What’s Your Motive? – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional February 14th

(Align With God’s Vision To Win The World)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 5:18 CEV
“God has done it all! He sent Christ to make peace between himself and us, and he has given us the work of making peace between himself and others.”

“Ernest, I saw the quotes you posted on your social media page, and I think some of them were rather toxic. Why not post some inspiring thoughts shared by our Pastor?” Mildred asked her neighbour.
“Aw, come on! Must everything with you be about church? My dream is to be a famous social media influencer someday, and not a pastor,” Ernest retorted.
“Okay, but have you asked yourself if your dream lines up with God’s dream for you?”
“Hmmm…I never really gave much thought to that….”

Some people, like Ernest, pursue self-seeking interests, oblivious of God’s dream and vision for their lives. What is God’s vision? It’s that everyone comes to the knowledge of the truth of the Gospel (1 Timothy 2:4). Therefore, your dreams should connect to His dream and your motives ought to be purified with His love.

Soul winning should be the compelling and propelling motive in your life. For example, your number one motivation for being a student in your school should be so you could win souls there. Likewise, your career choice ought to be influenced by your burning desire to preach the Gospel.

You’re first a Christian before you’re an entrepreneur, programmer, tech specialist, social media influencer, etc.; therefore, fulfil your calling in the Gospel. Let the expansion of God’s Kingdom be your number one passion. There’s a depth in God, a realm of joy and fulfilment, you’ll never know until you make your life count in soul winning.

Jesus’ instructions in Matthew 24:14 and Mark 16:15 to take the message of salvation to the ends of the earth wasn’t just to pastors and evangelists, but to every Christian.

Therefore, you’re a minister of the New Testament (2 Corinthians 3:6) and a bearer of the good news of salvation, commissioned to reach out with the light of salvation to those living in darkness.

You’re a light in a dark world; therefore, be aglow with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Beam it with steady radiance to others so they can become lights as well.

Habakkuk 2:14; Acts 26:16-18

Dear Father, thank you for the grace for salvation that’s at work all around the world even now, as your children proclaim the Gospel. Many are turned from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, as they hear and receive the Gospel today, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
