A reminder for today
"Stand up, son of man," said the voice. "I want to speak with you." (Ezekiel 2:1)
In this chapter God commissions Ezekiel to be His representative to the people of Israel. The amazing thing about this is that God spoke to Ezekiel and called him to tell the people Israel what God wants them to hear. This verse caught my attention specifically with the words "I want to speak with you."
You see God wants us to listen and He wants us to stand up for Him. The verse reads that Ezekiel must stand up and listen to God, but what God is putting in my heart today is that we must stand up for Him and we must listen as He tells us what to do and what to say. God wants you to be His representative and His ambassador wherever you go. He wants to use you to show His glory to the world and He wants you to perform His miracles. You have been summoned, so stand up with me, my friend, as we take up the responsibility God has given us. Let us be His soldiers, His ambassadors and His representatives to a dark and lost world.
Jesus said "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)
Let’s be disciples and make more disciples.
Lord, help us to be who you have made us to be and let us follow your voice with hungry hearts as we show you to the world around us. Let us become your disciples and break the power of the enemy over other as we make more disciples. In Jesus name.
Let every knee bow down and every voice declare that Jesus Christ is the Lord.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
