Today we read:
-Food for thought day 58-
• Mark 2:15-17
God created this world and placed us in this world for the purpose of reaching out to the lost.
Many a time believers only want to hangout among themselves which is not wrong; but we should never forget Jesus came to seek and save the lost.
The reason why we must interact with the unsaved is for the purpose of helping them come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. This can happen through our character, kindness and directly engaging with preaching the Gospel. That’s why the Word of God calls us the light of this world and the salt of the earth.
Therefore, without our presence in this world; it will be in darkness, it will have no taste and definitely will become a rotten place not fit for habitation for all of God’s creation.
That is why Jesus said: “And as Jesus, together with His disciples, sat at table in his [Levi’s] house, many tax collectors and persons [definitely stained] with sin were dining with Him, for there were many who walked the same road (followed) with Him. And the scribes [belonging to the party] of the Pharisees, when they saw that He was eating with [those definitely known to be especially wicked] sinners and tax collectors, said to His disciples, Why does He eat and drink with tax collectors and [notorious] sinners? And when Jesus heard it, He said to them, Those who are strong and well have no need of a physician, but those who are weak and sick; I came not to call the righteous ones to repentance, but sinners (the erring ones and all those not free from sin).”
God wants us to hangout with unbelievers for the purpose of helping them out of darkness into light; and not for us to be like them.
The unsaved are not in our church, but they’re at our workplace, business environment and schools. That’s why we must take advantage of every moment we have with them and let them realise what Jesus Christ has done on their behalf.
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.”
Many blessings in Jesus’ Name.
