YOUR RESPONSE?

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Luke 12:41-48

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work…

Colossians 1:10

 

If you were God and you had six billion people to save, what would you do? Would you send one or two people to save them or would you send a lot of people? Of course, you would send many people into the fields of harvest. And that is exactly what God has done. He has called many people!

Do not be deceived by the few pastors you see sitting on the front rows of churches. That always gives the impression that a few have been called, or that the majority of the congregation have not been called. Actually , it is the exact opposite. Many , and not just a few pastors, are called to the work of saving the world.

Sadly , most pastors treat their congregations as people who do not have a call. They relate to them as people who cannot do much for God. Most pastors teach their congregations how to have “a better life”. Much of the preaching is about ourselves, our lives, our marriages, our homes, our finances, etc. This kind of preaching is what creates the large, selfish and barren congregations of today.

“And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein” (Genesis 9:7). There is a call to fruitfulness. What is your response?
