You Have A Responsibility Placed On You By Jesus Christ

You Have A Responsibility Placed On You By Jesus Christ

Luke 19:12 "He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return. 13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come."

As a true Christian you claimed to be, do you know that Jesus Christ our Master, LORD and Saviour gave each one of us a responsibility? Do you know that responsibility?

Your responsibility is "OCCUPY TILL I COME".

Now, what are you occupying for Jesus Christ? How well are you occupying for Jesus till HE returns to rapture the Saints home?

Today, instead of the supposed Christians to occupy for the LORD Jesus Christ by "Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature" Mark 16:15, they are now occupying for themselves.

Some are occupying their TV screens for football, nollywood, bollywood, ghanollywood, hollywood, kanollywood films, newspapers, and sop opera and circular TV shows and action films, some others are occupying their phones for chatting on Facebook, 2go, WhatsApp, Y! Messenger, Google+ Hangout, BBM, badoo, and other social media platforms for fun. What a deceit!

Again, there are those occupying club houses and partying, some others are yet occupying their wives, husbands, children, jobs, positions, skins, clothes, shoes, wardrobes, cars, achievements, money, fame, certificates, and what have you. This is a serious diversion from the original purpose of Christ asking us to 'Occupy till He come'.

Friends, souls are dying everyday and trooping to hell fire straight from the pulpit, and you don't care? The harm that prosperity and grace messages has caused the body of Christ today is unprecedented.

Please, pick up your bibles and other gadgets at your disposal to preach the WORD of God to the world. Remember, you have been commissioned by Jesus Christ into His army of end time ministers, to stand in the gap for Him.

Your age, education, position, sex, nationality and occupation have nothing to do in this regard. Just obey the LORD and win souls for His kingdom, and it shall be well with you.

Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. 14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!"

Acts 1:8 "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth."

2 Timothy 4:2 "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine."

God bless you today as you OCCUPY for the LORD in Jesus name. Amen.
