This is the reason you must strive to be on fire as a Christian because Jesus has need of you. He is not physically here on earth but He needs you to continue His work of dealing with forces of darkness in this earth. He needs your mouth to preach the world and bring men from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of Light. He needs you to turn men from children of darkness to children of light. He needs your hand to heal the sick, to perform miracles and signs and wonders to establish the office of Jesus as the light of this world. He needs you to deliver those that are in the captivity of the power of darkness. He needs you to liberate those that are oppressed by the ruler of darkness. He needs you to cast out demons (powers of darkness) and stop their work wherever you see them or go. He needs you to be an ambassador of Light. He wants you to represent Him and sit in the office of the light of this world.
The Lord Jesus has done His part by coming to this world in human form and shed the light of salvation, defeating the kingdom of darkness and equipping us to do the same but how are you doing your part?
He’s relying on you to shed the light of salvation to those close to you, starting from your family members to your friends, co-workers and fellow students, to your community and to the world at large.
He’s relying on you to be an instrument of deliverance to those who are oppressed around us. He wants you to be an ambassador of light to shine in darkness in your community.
The Lord Jesus Himself declared you as the light of the world. Matthew 5:14 – 16 “ye are the light of this world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid…let your light so shine that they may see tour good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven”
Apostle Paul also was admonishing us and challenging us to represent Christ indeed as the light of the world.
“That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among WHOM YE SHINE AS LIGHTS IN THE WORLD” Philippians 2:15
Will you rise up and take charge or will you allow darkness to takeover in your family? Will you allow the light in you to shine and displace darkness or u will just sit and do nothing to stop the work of darkness in your family?
Will you shed the light of salvation to those around you or you will allow them go to the lake of fire that is solely meant for the devil and his cohorts?
Let me ask you a question: how will you feel that you get to heaven on the last day but you found your parent, siblings or friends in hell? Will you be happy to see your grandmother burning in the lake of fire? Will you be happy to see your close friend languishing in the lake of fire? For me, I want to be in heaven and see every member of my family and friends and everyone attached to my destiny and still continue the relationship in have with my family and friends there. I don’t want to lose any of them to the lake of fire. Join me on this quest to spread the light.
