“Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another?
Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:
The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.”
The problem with the Gospel we preach?
There is nothing to see, and little to hear.
Oh, we do preach the Gospel to the poor. (Or do we?)
When speaking of John the Baptist, Jesus asked; “What went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.?”
John preached with conviction and power. People, multitudes gathered to hear a message from the Lord.
Billy Graham, had a message from God. Do we?
Are we challenging the lost, to seek Salvation? Are we teaching those who are found, to be strong, effective Witnesses, of His Love and Grace?
“Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.”
Do we Know, Believe, and Understand, that He is the Great I AM?
Really? What have we seen and heard? Truly? Not much.
As Servants of the Lord, we must be like Mary, and do that which is important.
Sit at the feet of Jesus.
If we are to Preach, Teach and Reach those in need of Him, We must learn to take up His Yoke, and Walk With Him.
Doing and Carrying His Burden, Learning to be Meek, Lowly, and to Rest in Him.
We labour hard, and carry a burden, That Is Not Ours to Carry.
Stop, Sit at His Feet.
He will guide, direct and protect us, He will, Cause us to be effective, and fervent in our prayers and Ministry.
We will then, availeth much.
Until then? It is continue to Work, WHEN HE HAS CALLED US TO REST.
The word preached, has not profited us, not being mixed with faith in we that have heard. (Hebrews 4)
People must see and hear God’s Power, in the Gospel we Preach. Or they just do not come. Amen
