Many years later, the Lord told Joshua: “Now you are very old, BUT there is still a lot of land that Israel has not yet taken.” Read Joshua 13:1 (CEV). In the lands that were left to be divided, there were still people who needed to hear the gospel of Christ preached to them, after all the Bible says, “God loved the people of this world so much that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who has faith in Him will have eternal life and never really die.” Read John 3:16 (CEV).
Clearly, we see Jesus died for all of humanity, including all those who occupied the land Joshua was tasked to conquer. Here is my point, there are millions of people who need to be reached through the Gospel of Christ, and the Bible makes it clear that we are to be about our Fathers business – soul winning. Listen to what the scripture says, And He said to them, “As you go into all the world, preach openly the wonderful news of the gospel to the entire human race!” Read Mark 16:15 (TPT).
Watch this, your land can possibly be your market place, business sector, educational institutions or whatever sector you engage in. There are people in these establishments who might not know God, and they need someone with the light of God’s Word to shine the light of the gospel of grace and love. The Bible says, “Your lives light up the world. Let others see your light from a distance, for how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop?” Read Matthew 5:14 (TPT).
Can you see this? You are the light the world sees. And guess what, there is no chance of them not seeing you because inherent in you is God’s light, “which signs ever brighter and brighter unto a perfect day.” The Bible says, “You have been sealed with the blood of promise.” Therefore, as you go forth sharing the gospel of Christ, God’s seal of approval is on you for good and anyone who has eyes to see will observe something about you the world needs.
As you embrace and do God’s word, be rest assured this will occur according to the Bible, “He will go before them to drive out the inhabitants of the land He has promised to the children of Israel.” In other words, as you step out in faith, the Lord will go with and before you to prepare the hearts and minds of the people, He will prepare the grounds of their hearts and minds to receive the gospel of grace and love. Therefore, beloved, fear not, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go in the Name of Jesus.
We write. You read. Be encouraged.
One thought on “Much land remains to be conquered – Part 3”
Absolutely glorious. And I thank God that I am still qualified to preach the gospel of grace to the world around me.
