His Command Is Personal! Something To Think About!

Have you ever said I can’t do it, or thunk it! I was having lunch with a friend of mine the other day and we were talking about the ministry. He made this comment, “I could never do what you’re doing!”

I have to disagree, he could do what I’m doing and more with the help of the Holy Spirit! Shoot, I can’t do what I’m doing without His help and I’ll be the first to admit it! Without Him, we are nothing but a pile of dirty old rags.

Some of the people on my board of directors and advisory board are doctors, inventors, designers, teachers, housewives and the list goes on and on. God has given us a commission and that commission is found in 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 Judea, and in Samaria, and the unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Our witness is to Jesus Christ. He is the center of attraction! Jerusalem means our hometown. All Judea means our community. Samaria represents the other side of the tracks, the people we don’t associate with, and then, the uttermost parts of the earth. His command to us is personal, we can’t pass it off to someone else!
