Open Invitation from Jesus

Author: Evangelist Daniel Sushanth

Jesus has given an invitation to everyone to join the kingdom of God, and we should not miss this opportunity.

Luke 10:2 – ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.

To accept this invitation, we need to commit to evangelism and missions to spread His message. There are not enough people to do this work, so we must step up and be willing to share the Gospel with others. To do so effectively, we need to be knowledgeable about the word of God to answer questions and doubts that may come up.

Jesus recognized the need for more workers to reach people with the gospel, so it’s crucial to train and equip more people to become evangelists and disciple-makers. We are called to make disciples of all nations, and we cannot be passive in our mission.

We are called to go and make disciples of all nations, and we cannot afford to be complacent or passive in our mission. We must actively engage with the world around us and share the love and truth of Christ, even though we may face opposition and persecution. We must be prepared to face these challenges and trust in God’s strength and protection.

Let us pray together that God will continue to raise up workers for the harvest, and that many more souls will come to know the saving grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen

As followers of Christ, we have received an open invitation from our Lord to share the good news of salvation with others. The selfless sacrifices of countless missionaries and evangelists throughout history have paved the way for us to continue their work of bringing lost souls to the Kingdom of God. Let us not take this invitation lightly, but rather boldly step forward and join the ranks of those who have gone before us in fulfilling the Great Commission. “Together, let us make an impact for eternity and reap a bountiful harvest for the glory of God.”

Amy Carmichael was a remarkable Irish missionary who dedicated her life to serving in India in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. She founded the Dohnavur Fellowship, which rescued and cared for young girls who were being exploited as temple prostitutes. Carmichael was known for her selfless love and unwavering faith, and her life and work continue to inspire people around the world today.

John Wesley was an Anglican minister and theologian who founded the Methodist movement. He preached extensively throughout England and America, and it is estimated that he traveled over 250,000 miles on horseback to share the gospel. His preaching and ministry led to the conversion of thousands of people, and he was instrumental in the growth of the Methodist Church.

Graham Stuart Staines was an Australian Christian missionary who dedicated his life to serving the people of Odisha, India, since 1965. He and his family selflessly served the lepers in Baripada, providing them with medical treatment and education. Tragically, Staines and his two young sons were killed in a heinous attack by a Hindu fundamentalist group. His sacrifice is a testament to his unwavering love and dedication to serving others, and his memory will continue to inspire and move people.

Jim Elliot was an American missionary who dedicated his life to spreading the gospel. He and four other missionaries were martyred in 1956 while trying to make contact with the Huaorani people in Ecuador. Elliot’s passion for evangelism and his willingness to sacrifice his own life to bring the message of salvation to others continue to inspire and challenge believers today. His famous quote, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose,” serves as a reminder of the eternal significance of our actions and the value of living a life devoted to Christ.

As Christians, we cannot sit idly by while countless souls remain lost and without hope. It’s time for us to rise up and answer the call of evangelism with boldness and conviction. We must be willing to share the gospel in both word and deed, knowing that the harvest is plentiful and there are lives waiting to be transformed by the love of Christ.

Whether we’re called to go to the ends of the earth as full-time missionaries or simply to be a witness in our own backyard, we must take action and be the hands and feet of Jesus. We can’t let fear or doubt hold us back from sharing the good news with those around us.

It’s important to remember that evangelism doesn’t always involve preaching from a pulpit or standing on a street corner with a megaphone. Sometimes simply living out our faith in a loving and authentic way can have a powerful impact on those around us.

So let us step forward with courage, knowing that the Holy Spirit is with us every step of the way. Let us be a part of this great harvest and see lives transformed by the power of God’s love.

Father, we thank You for the invitation You have given us to join Your kingdom and be a part of Your work in the world. We ask that You would raise up more workers for the harvest and that You would equip us with the knowledge and boldness to share the gospel with those around us. Help us to be willing to step out of our comfort zones and take action, knowing that Your Holy Spirit is with us every step of the way. May our words and actions be a reflection of Your love and truth, and may many souls come to know You through our witness. We pray this in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ. Amen.
