“…The Kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.” [Luke 10:9]
Truly, the Kingdom of God is already in our midst! Our hope and faith in Christ’s Word, and in His promises, is a hope and faith which will never disappoint.
Luke, Chapter 10, is a vivid assurance that, Christ continues to send forth into the world, those who, having received Him, are on fire to proclaim the Truth of His Gospel, and of His Kingdom, which is to come.
Christian evangelization is all the more vital in contemporary times, when a “storm of relativism” is resolute in attempting to obscure and denigrate the enduring and immutable truth about man’s nature and ultimate destiny.
Relativist entities seek to bar religious belief and discussion from public discourse. They paint it as a ‘menace’ and peril to liberty and equality. They refuse to recognize that, religious faith is, rather, a guarantee of credible and authoritative respect for liberty and equality.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” [Romans 1:16]
It is, in fact, a Christian foundation in America, which underpins the freedoms which we treasure as a nation. The aggressive forces of secularism must recognize that, our traditional values and ethics, as a people, which they seek to undermine, were formulated, based upon a Judeo-Christian philosophy.
“…pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” [Luke 10:2]
We pray, therefore, that the Lord of the harvest will send laborers to His harvest. Indeed, Spirit inspired ambassadors for Christ are central to the expansion of Christianity and to the saving of souls.
Let us resolve, in our walk with the Lord, to instruct and encourage those who seek Truth, to grow in the knowledge of God. Let us pray, also, that they gain in wisdom, so that they too may herald the Truth of Jesus and the power of His Gospel.
