There are many Bible believing Christians in this world that want to make a
great impact on society and their earnest prayers are to be used of God in
magnificent and extraordinary ways. What we must always keep in mind is
that God does not call every believer to be an Evangelist or Missionary to
travel the world, but He does call every believer to love their neighbor
as themselves. The way that we can reach the world with the saving and
healing message of Jesus Christ is for each of us to care for and take
interest in those around us who are in need. (John 1:10-12) (Mark 12:30-31)
Imagine the impact on this world if every believer looks to their left and
to their right and made a conscious decision to reach those people who are
so near with the life changing message that Jesus Christ loves them and
died and rose again so that they may Live Eternally. (Ezekiel 36:25-27)
I hope you are blessed by today's message to see that no matter your
stature by this world's standard, you do have the ability to share the love
of God and be a witness of what He has already done for you.
GOD, I WANT TO DO GREAT THINGS!
(Scene -- Sunday A.M. assembly; silent prayer)
Max: God, I want to do great things.
God: You do?
Max: You bet! I want to teach millions! I want to fill the Rose Bowl! I
want all of the world to know your saving power! I dream of the day....
God: That's great. Max. In fact, I can use you today after church.
Max: Super! How about some radio and TV work or. . .or. . .or an engagement
to speak to Congress?
God: Well, that's not exactly what I had in mind. See that fellow sitting
next to you?
God: He needs a ride home.
Max (quietly): What?
God: He needs a ride home. And while you're at it, one of the older ladies
sitting near you is worried about getting a refrigerator moved. Why don't
you drop by this afternoon and....
Max (pleading): But, God, what about the world?
God (smiling): Think about it.

We are all called to The Great Commission to reach people for Christ right
where we stand. We do not need trumpets to sound in order for us to see
where the need is because wherever we look we can see the multitudes in
need of The Savior. (Matthew 28:18-20) (Matthew 9:35-38) (Romans 3:22-25)
Be encouraged to stand in your calling and do for the Lord all that He has
called you to do without murmuring or complaining but with cheerfulness
singing praise and thanksgiving in your heart for the privilege of serving
the Most High God. (Philippians 2:13-15) (Colossians 3:16-17)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is
given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all
nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of
the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have
commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the
Philippians 2:13-15 “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to
do of His good pleasure. Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
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.”
Colossians 3:16-17 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all
wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and
spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And
whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.”
Matthew 9:35-38 “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching
in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing
every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the
multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and
were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd. Then saith He unto His
disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray
ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that He will send forth labourers
into His harvest.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
