Scripture reading: Acts 1:8

God is saying to us that His flock is wandering up on the mountain like sheep without a shepherd, yet there is a body of Christ in our midst. I am saying to you, body of Christ, “For Christ’s sake, come alive! Begin to realize your responsibility in a world that needs you badly.”

Do you see what I mean? We have lost the spirit of evangelizing. Do you ever feel like an angel of God at your workplace? Or dealing with people out on the street? This is what God is saying: ev-angel; ev-angel is angel. You see, you are sent of God. As the body of Christ you are sent of God in the world to do a job. ARE YOU DOING IT? You have to start doing it in your midst, then you start doing it outside there. Jesus said, But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth (Acts 1:8).

Let us look at Ephesians 4 and we go back to that very, very hackneyed [often repeated] verse which has been so used in my Bible that the leaf comes out. Beginning at verse 11, “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors shepherds, and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” The work of the ministry is not going to be done by the apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers. But it is the saints that are going to do the work of the ministry. It is the church that must function. You are a living body. You must walk and talk and function in the world and bring forth fruit and you need to bring forth fruit after your own kind.

Do you realize that you are not doing the work that you could be doing among the kids in your area? Do you know what you could be doing? You could have the brethren picking up kids all over and teaching them about Jesus. Sometimes parents are too happy to get rid of their kids for a couple of hours.

I know a brother that went as far as building a swimming pool and having lifeguards. He got one of those old city busses and fixed it up. He began to pick up the kids on the bus routes all over and bring them in. When he brought in one load of kids, he didn’t give them the fun first. He gave them the songs and the Sunday school lesson and they played music and sang and so and so. When they were through, he put some in the pool and some on the swings in his back yard and they had a good time. Mothers were happy to get rid of them for three hours. Then, he was gone for another group of children and by the time he came in with the other group, the first group was ready to go home and home they went.

What is wrong with us? What is wrong with us? Don’t you see that the time is late and we need to get hold of the people? Let God work in your midst. Volunteer, get some of the people out there, those that don’t belong to us to volunteer to come and help. The next thing that happens is that they get saved too. Do you see what I mean?

We need an outreach of God because He says, “FEED THE FLOCK OF GOD.”

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, December 2011, pg. 23-25)

Thought for today: I am saying to you, body of Christ, “For Christ’s sake, come alive! Begin to realize your responsibility in a world that needs you badly.”
