And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 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, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen [Matthew 28:18-20, NKJV]
The salvation of the believer does not just cover the spiritual aspects of life (by spiritual, what most people mean is religion). It is a common misconception that the believer is saved to become more of a religious person. It ought to dawn on the believer to pray often (and expect nothing of his prayer life) to fast, to sing nice gospel songs, to go to church and so on. He is taught to know that for as long as he does all of these things, he is a good Christian, for there is nothing else to expect out of the life of a Christian but that, WRONG!
Imagine you wanted to become a doctor, and you were told that for as long as you continued to go to school, you were doing fine. You would have no graduation date in mind, nothing to mark a change or an achievement; just go to school. Infact, do not even attend lectures. That would be a waste of time and resources wouldn’t you agree?
The believer is saved by Grace FOR A REASON. For the achievement of certain purposes first in his life and then through his life. He is redeemed by the precious blood of the lamb so that he can be revived in every aspect of his life; his spiritual, financial, relationship, social and economic life. Anything but this is a partial revival and it falls short of the plans and purposes of God for his life. Secondly, by this total revival, he is meant to be an Ambassador of Grace, a kingdom representative here in earth, to show forth the Glory of our God to all creation.
You are more than a church goer, you, potentially, are God’s agent of change and kingdom influence in your world. Seize your true identity, work out your salvation and let God, reveal His love-nature through you. GRACE!
I am God’s Grace Ambassador, created unto God for good works. I am God’s Change agent, sent to ignite the flames of revival and renewal in my generation. God is interested in me, I am no accident of nature, I was born to show the world the goodness of God and to reveal His love-nature to all men. I WILL NOT FAIL!
