My Dear Brothers and Sisters, as we enter into the Kingdom of God to be with Him in prayer, praise and worship, know that their is a calling upon your life, and Jesus is calling out to you to come and follow HIM and He is going to make you a fishers of Men in the same manner He called His first two disciples, He is still calling out to Men and Women all around the World to Come and then Go!
Almighty God our Heavenly Father, I thank you for sending your Son Jesus into my life and the lives of all your children; I heard His call and today I am answering that call to pick up my cross and follow Him. I now realize this is my time, my mission, and I will be your disciple, a servant that has been chosen to do your will. I honor you, I love you, I praise you and I will be obedient to your will, in Jesus name, Amen!
THE CALL FROM JESUS:
Here is how Jesus began is calling, “While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. ” (Matthew 4:18-19 ESV)
Are you ready to lay aside the life that you have come to know, step outside of your comfort zone, pick your cross and follow Jesus? You are a Servant being called to Serve; have you touched the handle of the plow? Jesus said in Luke 9:62, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
The time is now to lift our eyes up towards Heaven and know that the Kingdom of God has come and it is living inside of us, waiting on us to step up and become faithful Servants, stepping out on our faith, with our battle gear on, knowing that we have been prepared, fully equipped and ready for the Spiritual War that is now upon us.
Jesus has CALLED us, and now He is saying GO! “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20 ESV)
It is now time to go to the word to get the rest of the story. Today my Friend and Brother in Christ Jesus Pastor Dennis R. Everett, Sr from the Lake Bethlehem Baptist Church is going to provide the rest of the story on what Jesus meant when He said GO!
Father we thank you for allowing us to come into your presence and worship you, strengthen us as we GO out to SERVE; Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen.
