2 Chronicles 19:4 “So Jehoshaphat lived in Jerusalem and went out again among the people from Beersheba to the hill country of Ephraim and brought them back to the Lord, the God of their fathers.”
GO TO THEM
What a beautiful picture of love and concern for his people. Jehoshaphat, the kind of Judah, is the one who went out to his people to bring them back to the Lord. He was challenged by Jehu, the seer, to seek the Lord. And he did just that.
We have the same challenge today from our Lord. We should be going out to the people to bring them back to the Lord. Our hearts should be broken for the lost around us. If we don’t go out to them, they are destined for an eternal destruction. Doesn’t that break your heart?
Children naturally want to tell people good news. They can hardly keep it a secret. When your little Johnny or Susie comes to Christ, they will want to tell others about it. Teach them how.
We are witnesses through our words, our deeds, our changed lives and our hunger for His Word. Teach your children how to tell their story of salvation to others. Teach them to point others to Jesus by the things they do for Him.
Are you a witness? Are you reaching out to bring others into the fold? We all have a responsibility to do so. It is not just the Pastor’s job or the missionary’s responsibility. Every believer is a minister of the Gospel. Take your story to the lost world and tell others about the life changing power of the Messiah.
