Point of Inspiration
One of today’s most demanding jobs is that of an Air Traffic Controller. Their obligation to report to airline pilots is a matter of life and death. Misreading a coordinate or reticence to communicate precise information can cost hundreds of lives. But Christians are levied with a greater charge than that. It’s the charge to witness for Christ and warn sinners of hell’s impending danger. Even a Christian’s silence can be fateful to others. As the book of Revelation says, “The power of life and death is in the tongue!”
Before Christ ascended into heaven He commissioned Christians to spread the Gospel. It is the voice and testimony of Christians that offer this world hope in Christ. It would have been much easier to disseminate the message through angels. They are inviolate, tireless, and perfectly dependable. But God did not discharge the Great Commission to these celestial creatures. Christ died for men, not angels, and only redeemed men are in covenant with Christ. That means those who are in covenant are commissioned! Commissioned to witness and guide others safely to their eternal destination.
Your voice is needed and no excuse is acceptable! Submit your introverted personality or feelings of inadequacy to the empowering work of the Holy Spirit. He will supply the ability! Men, not angels, are commissioned through the Covenant to share the saving message of Jesus Christ. Angels are unemployed!
