*👉VERSE:* _*”As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world”_(John 17:18)
*After a coach has taken an athlete through an intensive training session, he gets the full conviction of his hard work only when the athlete wins the race on the day of competition. Every athlete with winning mentality is selfish because he wouldn’t like other competitors to bypass Him.*
This world is a place for us to prove the point of reality associated with our discipleship. *It is a market with innocent souls willing to be made useful without fermenting and decomposing for nothing.* Our Lord Jesus Christ will not send us to this market of innocent souls without giving us what it takes to buy them for His Kingdom (Mark 16:15-20).
*In this market, selfishness and stubbornness cannot buy any soul for Christ, and at the long run these fresh souls will rot in hell.* It takes the righteousness of God in us to be exchanged in order for their sins to be flashed out by the blood of Christ. This is not different from saying that Jesus Christ is seeking to pay with His blood, the ransom for their sins. We are to go out to show forth the life of Christ in us to them, and if necessary, die for the lost souls even as Christ did before He could save us from sin. *The blood of Christ is still looking for souls to buy (1Corinthians 6:19-20).*
*We are the very people who are to run this errand with the heart of Christ in us. The Word of God has provided us with marketing strategy needed to win souls for Him. What will be the account we will give after we have been sent by our Lord? Will we bring back what we were sent to buy or receive punishment for squandering the grace of God on selfishness and worldly cares? Mind you, our God is jealous and wouldn’t like any of the lost souls to be in the custody of Satan (2Peter 3:9-10). Let our lives lead not any one into sin. Win perishing souls for Christ. NOW!!!*
*PRAYER* Lord Jesus Christ, I sacrifice myself for your end time soul winning business. *AMEN*
