He Appoints and He Anoints - Daily Courage - April 29

 
from Day by Day with the Persecuted Church

Preach the word. (2 Timothy 4:2)

Yang Zhang

To share the Gospel is the number one priority of the Body of Christ. New believers also have this responsibility. Not just "mature" believers. Every believer should get involved in spreading the Word of God. The more you plant - the more you reap. Without planting there is no harvest.

God wants to see a harvest of souls. He needs laborers to plow, plant and reap. We are these laborers.

We are not only His people - we are also His servants. He can send a servant as He pleases.

The servant has no excuse: I am not gifted. I am not qualified. The master knows what he does.

·      When He appoints - He anoints 
·      When He calls - He enables 
·      When He sends - He goes along 
·      When He asks you to speak - He will give you the words

Just obey - and you will see God at work - through you.
