What’s Your Vehicle Of Life? – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional January 21st



(Wherever You Find Yourself, Win Others To The Lord)

TO THE BIBLE: Matthew 28:19
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

“Well, since the Lord is coming soon, I don’t think there’s any need for me to go to school,” Grant muttered to himself.

He kept thinking like this till the Holy Spirit led him to read the message Apostle Paul gave young Timothy: “Till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine” (1 Timothy 4:13).

Sometimes, when we talk about the coming of the Lord being so much closer now than ever, some have asked, “In that case, is there any need for me to still go to school or start a career?”

When people ask such questions, it’s evident they’re missing something. What they’re missing is the urgency of the moment, the earnestness of making His message known.

Going to school or starting a new career are all opportunities to reach others with the Gospel. We call them chariots, “vehicles” of life.

The word “nations” in our opening verse is “ethnos” in Greek, and it doesn’t just mean “countries”; it refers to social or taxonomic divisions of people. And these may be broken into various ethno-systems.

For example, there’re ‘student nations,’ ‘career nations,’ ‘neighbourhood nations’; all the students of a particular university, an association of engineers, or artists, or residents of a community, etc.

Are you a student? Your student community is a nation, with respect to the definition of our opening verse. You become the preacher in your world.

As a young boy many years ago, I was inspired to win fellow students to Christ, and I did! I went beyond my school to other schools, holding conferences with students. I preached among the youth groups, and many of them were won to Christ. Hallelujah!

Our faith in Jesus and our expectation of His imminent return make us even more passionate to do more.

We’re even more determined to do the things we’ve been doing better, and in a brighter light—in the light of His coming. We become directed and more focused, using the opportunity of our “nations” to reach more people with greater urgency.

John 15:16; 1 Corinthians 9:16; Proverbs 11:30

The Lord has anointed me to deliver men from bondage into the glorious liberty of the sons of God, turning them from darkness to light and from sin unto righteousness. In these last days, I’m doing exploits for the Lord, establishing His Kingdom and righteousness in the earth and in the hearts of men, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
