Go quickly and tell

“I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus”. 

I had no idea of what to call this meditation but in a conversation with the Holy Spirit, He gave me the title.

A line from an old hymn - -

“I would love to tell you what I think of Jesus”. 

Really?  Is that true of you and me?  Are we longing to be involved in (Matthew 28:19) the Great Commission and praying that God will ordain opportunities for us to witness to His saving Grace through Jesus?  When the dead man’s body touched the bones of Elisha in the grave (2 Kings 13:21) the dead man was restored to life.  There are spiritually dead people all around us.  When any of them come into touch with us, do they detect the evidence of a life that impacts them - - a life of such quality and beauty that it awakens in them a desire to know the Giver of such a life?

The King’s sons and daughters (Psalms 45:13) are all glorious within because His children are clothed with the righteousness of Jesus Christ so they have inner beauty.  Our heavenly Father’s heart’s desire for us is that we will be (Ephesians 3:19) filled with the Presence of God to the fullness of the Godhead and that the beauty of Jesus (Psalms 90:17) be in us and upon us.  As we consider God’s desire for us, it gives us compelling motivation to be holy.  If we are not holy (1 Peter 1:16) how can we represent our holy God in this sinful world?

We must make sure that we have our values straight.  Esau sold his birthright (Genesis 25:29-34, Hebrews 12:16-18) for a bowl of soup.  Adam sold the whole human race for a (Genesis 3:6) piece of forbidden fruit.  In his transaction with the king of darkness, Adam also got sin, sickness, disease, untold misery, death and hell thrown into the deal for us.  We should always be prepared and ready to answer anyone’s questions (1 Peter 3:15) about our assurance of eternal life.  We must be rooted deeply in God’s Word.

We must take root downward (2 Kings 19:30) before we can bear fruit upward.  Filled and primed with God’s Word we will continue to bear fruit, even (Psalms 92:14) in old age, as we tell unsaved people that Jesus came to redeem, to buy back all that Adam literally threw away.  Jesus came to restore in believing individuals and in the whole world all the beauty and perfection which He originally created and which had been lost in Adam’s Fall.  Jesus is both truly God and the only Saviour.  He is (John 14:6) the only Way, the Truth and the only Life.  Without the Way there is no going, without the Truth there is no knowing, without the Life there is no living.  There is no other name (Acts 4:12) and no other one by which we can receive forgiveness, eternal life and salvation.  Jesus is both truly God and (Isaiah 43:11) the only Saviour.  Apart from Jesus there is no Saviour and no way of salvation.

Do you sense the critical urgency of the times?  If you are a Christian who had substituted snoring for praying and obeying, WAKE UP!!

Read these verses (Romans 13:11-14) and fling away the works of darkness and put on the armour of light.  Consider, realize that the day is almost gone and we have little time left to fulfill our part in God’s purpose for our lives.  The admonition of the Holy Scriptures is for us to clothe ourselves with Jesus Christ. Then we can be the clothes that Jesus wears, wherever we are and at all times as he lives His life in and through us.

         You are writing a Bible, a chapter each day,

         By the things that you do and the things that you say,

         So be careful, my friend, what you say and you do,

And prove to the world that the Bible is true.

 

THEN - - Go quickly and tell - - because someone needs to hear.
