Text: Matthew 4: 19. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
The good news of salvation and encounter with the Lord is the fact that it has a multiplication capacity.
The true essence of our salvation is to see our fellow brothers saved also.
When we share our testimony on how Jesus transformed us, we would have a harvest of souls in our community.
The salvation of men is the heartbeat of God and the center of the Gospel of Christ.
The Bible told us of the aftermath and outcome of the Samaritan woman after her encounter with Jesus at the well in John 4.
In amazement and reaction to the reality of her life-changing encounter, she couldn’t hold the beauty of the experience to herself but went to every street and corner, announcing that she had met the Messiah who has not only told her of her herself but also transformed her.
The true beauty of salvation is witnessing the Savior to others for their salvation.
Now imagine walking up to a smoke addict, a drug addict, a prostitute and you share the love of Christ, share your testimony on how Christ transformed you from a smoker, a drug addict, a prostitute to a new creature.
Make them see that there’s hope and God has plans for them.
That is the true essence of your salvation and that is why God has saved us, and made us fishers of men, that through us and our testimonies, many would be saved.
I charge you today, stop pocketing Christ.
Let Christ be seen in all you do.
Let Christ be glorified in all you do.
When we live for Christ, He stands for us.
When we speak about Christ, He shares the same testimony about us before God in heaven.
You were saved to save.
