Laying down for the Lord


Church Famiy,

Commitment. How committed are you to following God? Read what God commands Ezekiel to do.

Ezekiel 4:4-6 “Then lie on your left side, and place the punishment of the house of Israel upon it. For the number of the days that you lie on it, you shall bear their punishment. 5For I assign to you a number of days, 390 days, equal to the number of the years of their punishment. So long shall you bear the punishment of the house of Israel. 6And when you have completed these, you shall lie down a second time, but on your right side, and bear the punishment of the house of Judah. Forty days I assign you, a day for each year.

Can you imagine the pain and hurt that he endured for 430 days? The temptation is to be like, “well it was easier for Ezekiel because God made it some how less painful.” Uh, NO!

Why bring this up? 2 reasons: 1) I read today that persecutors want believers to simply stop sharing the gospel. So, what is the difference between a persecutor and a believer who doesn’t share the gospel? In both cases the gospel is not being spread. (Man I fail to share my faith as often as I need to)

2) I also read that for a church to be committed to reaching the nations it needed 4 types of people: a) people to go, b) people to send, c) people to help raise support, d) people who are willing to welcome the Nations in their homes.

I am so excited that High Point is working on number 1 and checking off every box of number 2. Keep in mind that God has an eternal purpose for all that He has called us to. Strive to share your faith more often. Ask which of the 4, if not all of them, are you willing to be?
