A candle that wants to be light…

A candle that wants to be light…

What is your purpose? Unsure of your path? Well I hope this reaches you!

Matthew 28:19-20 (KJV)
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Mark 16:15 (KJV)
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Luke 24:47 (KJV)
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

John 20:21 (KJV)
Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

Acts 1:8 (KJV)
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

The Bible repeats this because of its importance. Kind of like your parents repeating something to you…they want you to get it.

But what does it really mean?
Simply put, to go tell somebody about what Christ has done and or is doing in your life. It is our duty to spread the word where it is needed. Any candle (you) they wants to be light (like Christ) will find darkness (somebody that needs Christ).

But why should I do it (Glad you asked)

1) It’s our responsibility to tell somebody about Jesus.

1 Corinthians 9:16 (KJV)
For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

It has already been commanded unto you by Christ in Matt, Mark, Luke, & John. But “woe” (sad grieved distressed) is on you if you do not do what you are responsible for. It is not for you to gloat for doing what you are supposed to do. You don’t get  money for good grades (hated when my dad stopped that) but he was teaching me something it’s what you are supposed to do! You don’t get a pat on your back for taking care of your responsibilities IT’S WHAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO DO, & let sadness consume you for neglecting your responsibility!

Now does this mean everyone gets a turn in the pulpit, that everyone is supposed to become a minister, naw i’m not saying all that. It means you are to go out and spread the Gospel and that is proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ (Gospel=good news). What is He doing in your life.

You are his proclamator (this is not a word) in the middle of difficult people. He needs you to share your light where it is dark.
God has placed you-where you are-to usher people to where He is…when’s the last time you told someone where Christ is.
We are all beggars some of us just found bread…now do you keep that location to yourself or will you help someone else find bread?

A candle that wants to be light will find darkness!

Stay tuned I will share with you the 2nd reason…
And the reader said Amen!
