RHAPSODY OF REALITIES, FEBRUARY 25, 2024: LIVE FOR CHRIST

Rhapsody of Realities, February 25, 2024, by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome (Christ Embassy): Live for Christ.

 

Topic: Live for Christ

For the love of Christ constraineth us, because we thus judge that if one died for all,then we were all dead (2 Corinthians 5:14).

Rhapsody of Realities for Today’s Message:

Many don’t understand the purpose of life. Therefore, they think a great life is when you’ve amassed wealth or earthly possessions; no. Jesus said in Luke 12:15, “Take heed, and beware of covetousness; for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.”

Furthermore, he taught about a rich man who had such a bountiful harvest that he needed to tear down his storehouses and build new ones to store his crops. He was excited to have laid up so many supplies for himself.

But while he was relishing the thought of all that he had amassed, God came into his room and said, “You fool! This very night, your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?” (Luke 12:20 NIV).

What’s the purpose of your life in this world? Why are you here? It’s to make sure the gospel of Jesus Christ goes to the ends of the earth. Our Lord Jesus said, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). In Matthew 28:19, He said, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations…”

Personalize your role in the gospel and say, like the Apostle Paul, “According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust” (1 Timothy 1:11). Recall what the Lord said to him in Acts 26:16: “I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness.” (Acts 26:16).

We are His witnesses; it should be what excites you. You may not be a pastor, evangelist, teacher, prophet, or apostle, but you’re a minister of reconciliation, called to be a soul-winner. So, live your life for Christ unreservedly. Come what may, stand for Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. Preach the gospel, no matter what.

CONFESSION

I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me, and I live for Him. He’s made me a passionate, committed, and fearless soul winner, and today, through me, many receive the gospel gladly and are converted to the kingdom in Jesus’ name. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY:

Galatians 2:20: I am crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh, I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Romans 10:13–15: 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!

1 Corinthians 9:16: For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of; for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me if I preach not the gospel!
