Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. John 11:50
If there was a way to monitor the heartbeat of God, instead of ‘lobdob-lobdob-lobdob’, what you would hear would be ‘souls! Souls! Souls!’ This is the most important thing to God. Right from creation, God’s interest had always been in man. Unfortunately, the serpent thwarted God’s intentions. From that moment, God had a plan to restore man to the lost glory. Not only to restore man but to retain and build up man in the new creation life. Just because God’s interest is the souls of men, He sent His only begotten son. Jesus came in the flesh and fulfilled all the requirements to restore man. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17)
However, in spite of the sacrifice of Jesus the world is full of people who are in the bondage of sin and oppression, meanwhile the gospel has the answer to their situation. They won’t know until you tell them. “How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!” (Romans 10:14-15)
If you want to get God’s attention, get involved with what God is involved with, win His heart by your commitment to His heartbeat. What are you doing about winning souls? God cannot come down from Heaven and evangelize. He saved you to go and save others. Don’t fail God. Win souls through witnessing to those you meet every day. Win souls through sponsorship of the gospel. Focus your energy and resources on soul winning and you will never lack abundant grace.
<Healed of strange sickness>
I was seriously sick but whenever I went to hospital, after investigations, the doctors would tell me that there was nothing wrong with me. I was going down every day. This continued until I heard daddy’s voice over the radio I decided to come to church. When I came, I was feeling dizzy as though I would faint but I managed to stay for the service. As papa ministered, I felt a cool breeze rush through my body. That was the end of that affliction. I am perfectly whole. Hallelujah!
