We are constantly amazed at the relevancy today of A. W. Tozer. A. W. Tozer died in 1963 but his insights remain incredibly relevant to our lives today. He could be controversial at times but, more often that not, he was right!
The quote above is a great reminder for those of us in any Christian Service. It seems as if there is always something that we have to do or some place we have to be or a lesson we have to study for or prepare for or another program to produce or record for our ministry. These are all good things but we often get so caught up in “our service” that we ignore the reason for the service! What a great reminder that if we seek to WORSHIP God first, our work will become much more effective with much greater eternal results with our focus in the right place. Spend time worshipping Jesus Christ each day and He will make your service more focused on Him and more effective for Him. People’s eternity depends on it!
Our ministry at Final Harvest will always be first and foremost about communicating the good news of the Gospel with the lost! Jesus is the same today, yesterday and forever and it is only through Him that you can be saved from your sin and live the life that God has intended for you!
However, we also believe that every Christian is called to tell others about the saving love of Jesus Christ! Second Corinthians 5:20 reminds us: “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.” Our ministry has been blessed to reach several people for Christ, but just imagine how many we can ALL reach if we work together to further the Gospel! You may not be a singer, or a pastor, or a missionary, or a Sunday School Teacher or a Church Officer but you too can serve God and tell others about Him where you are; at work, at school, in your neighborhood, wherever you are!
As the quote above says, when we have the single mind of serving Christ, our circumstances in life will be used to further the Gospel and we can rejoice at what God will accomplish!
