“The one who listens to you listens to Me; and the one who rejects you rejects Me; and the one who rejects Me rejects Him [My heavenly Father] who sent Me” (Luke 10:16)
I am a servant of Christ. I am an ambassador of Christ. He sends me to speak His Words. These are not my words but His. Along the way, as I do ministry, I know that I will meet two types of people. Some will listen to me and some will close their ears. Some will reject me and some will accept me. There is no other group. This is a simple instruction from the Master. I shall not be confused or deceived by men.
The Lord has sent me into a good and great field. It is an abundant harvest. It is also a dangerous field. I am a sheep sent to save other sheep that are lost in the forest of the wolves. I do not have physical weapons. I do not have strong teeth to bite. I cannot run faster than the wolves. But the wisdom, the power and the grace of God given by my Shepherd are always sufficient. My life is a miracle. I lose nothing even when I pour out daily. The supply, both spiritual and material, never stops. God’s mercy and encouragement is new and creative every morning. My spiritual engine is fueled by the agape love of God that never fails. I carry with me in my heart and mouth words of peace, healing and life. If any receive them, the seal of the Holy Spirit will become visible upon that one. He will be blessed with all types of riches. The spiritual connection between me and him (or her) endures forever. In heaven we shall remember the holy testimony that started on earth. But if anyone politely ignores or rejects my words, that person does not need me. He will answer to the God who sent me. When someone rejects me, I never feel sorry for myself. I feel sorry for that person. I count that one as a foolish man or woman. I know that person has lost an opportunity to enjoy a treasure that could have been his. My work for God comes with a very high responsibility. But it carries the greatest reward. I give God all the glory for my salvation and my ministry!
