DELIVERANCE AND HEALING
By PBS Ministries
If you were to hear the words from Jesus saying, “Follow me,” what would be your reaction? Would you say, not now, I have to first attend to my family, or, would you say, get someone else. The Lord is waiting on your answer.
The Gospel of Matthew 9:35-38 tell us:
“Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
The workers are few, but the harvest is plentiful. The Lord is calling us into the harvest field. There are many who are lost and need to hear the Good News of the grace of Jesus Christ. There are many who need to believe and to be saved before the return of Jesus Christ.
When Jesus saw Peter and Andrew fishing, He told them “Come, follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” At once, they left their nets and followed Christ. Jesus saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” He told him and Matthew got up and followed him. The twelve disciples went around from town to town teaching and preaching the Gospel and saving souls.
The Great Commission instructs us to go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them and teaching them to obey the commands of the Lord. Today, we can reach millions of people around the world with the Gospel through Internet Evangelism. From the comforts of their home, many can receive the truth of the Word of God, they can be edified, enlightened and can give their heart to the Lord.
The mission field on the Internet is so big. Millions of people are online every day looking for solutions to their everyday problems. Many seek Godly advice from the Internet. How to pray? How to love? How to forgive? How to be saved? How to restore marriages? These and many more questions are typed into Google search engine daily because people are looking for spiritual guidance every second of the day. These answers show up on Christian websites that give biblical solutions to your problems.
With Internet Evangelism, we reach nations around the world with the infallible, unadulterated Word of God that will change people’s life forever. Souls are won for Christ over the Internet while these persons are in their sitting room, their bedroom, their front porch and the like. This ministry answers the call of the Great Commission in a way that never occurred before. It is one way of going into all the nations and proclaiming Jesus Christ as our Savior.
I encourage us to answer the call today and follow Christ. The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Let us use every opportunity and avenue available to us to reach the lost for Christ. Amen
