Today's Devotional Thought
Yesterday we considered some new year's resolutions in light of God's resolutions toward His people in Lamentations 3. We were challenged to resolve to pursue greater holiness and greater personal devotion. Today, let us consider another potential resolution for 2018.
Resolve to Pursue Greater Personal Witness
Dawson Trotman's second question in those missionary interviews had to do with their witness. Again I quote from Trotman’s booklet, “Born to Reproduce.”
"You are going out to the foreign field. You hope to be used by the Lord in winning men and women to Christ. Is that right?" Yes. "You want them to go on and live the victorious life, don't you? You don't want them just to make a decision and then go back into the world, do you?" No. "Then may I ask you something more? How many persons do you know by name today who were won to Christ by you and are living for Him?" The majority had to admit that they were ready to cross an ocean and learn a foreign language, but they had not won their first soul who was going on with Jesus. A number of them said that they got many people to go to church; others said they had persuaded some to respond to the invitation. I asked, "Are they living for Christ now?" Their eyes dropped. I then continued, "How do you expect that by crossing an ocean and speaking in a foreign language with people who are suspicious of you, whose way of life is unfamiliar, you will be able to do there what you have not yet done here?"
We are commanded to go! In Matthew 28:19 Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” He said in Acts 1:8, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
