B. The Relevance of the Text.
How many of you here this morning feel that you are inadequate to serve Christ? Do you feel that you are nothing and that Jesus could never use you? A lot of people feel that way I am sure. I feel that way. In fact we should all feel that we are inadequate to serve Christ. As far as our own abilities go we are inadequate to serve the Lord. That is not an excuse not to serve Him though. He makes us adequate to serve Him. There is a saying that is overused but makes perfect sense. God does not call the qualified, He qualifies the Called. In other words in our selves we would never be qualified to serve Christ, but when He calls us then He gives us what we need to serve Him.
Paul in His letter to the Corinthians asked them to consider all of the people among their congregation. And His point was that none of them were in of themselves worthy of the Gospel and that was the point that God wants to make. No one is worthy of the Gospel just like no one is worthy to serve God. He has to make us worthy before we are qualified to go for Him.
We as Christians as we saw last week are called to spread the Gospel. And in spreading the gospel we are to follow Christ’s example. Well how are we ever going to be effective in spreading the Gospel? It is simple We MUST TRUST CHRIST! IF we are ever to be successful for Christ We must trust Christ to Do the Work. So how are we going to trust Christ to do the Work? Well there are three parts to trusting Christ to do the work and we are going to look at all three of them in this verse this morning.
C. The Review of the Text.
Last week we talked about how we should be spreading the Gospel and how we should be praying to God to send out more to spread the Gospel. I wonder how many of you took Christ’s Command Seriously and how many went away did not share. The Passage we looked at last week was the beginning of what I see as Instructions on Evangelism for the Disciples. Now this week we are going to see that Christ is going to send out Laborers into the Harvest and they are going to be twelve from among His Disciples. Now there are going to be some different aspects of this call that do not apply to us today, but on the other hand we can get some valuable principals from this passage. Look with me now at Matthew Chapter 10 verses 1 thru 15
D. The Reading of the Text
Matthew 10:1-15 (KJV)
1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. 2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. 5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, and raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. 9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, 10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat. 11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence. 12 And when ye come into a house, salute it. 13 And if the house be worthy, let your peace come upon it: but if it be not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. 15 Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.
T.S. In order to be effective For Christ We Must Trust Christ To Do the WORK and if we are going to trust Christ to do the Work then We are going to have to learn some principals from this Passage Beginning with Realizing that we are Common
I. TRUSTING CHRIST TO DO THE WORK REQUIRES REALIZING WE ARE COMMON
A. Realizing We Are Common Means Knowing Our Source of Power
And when He had called unto Him his twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner disease
If we are going to realize that we are common then first we must know our source of power. Do any of you believe that your power comes from within? How powerful as a human being are you? You are completely helpless are you not? Then what makes you think that you possess any power to change who you are or who anyone else is? Look at this first verse here in chapter ten. It says that He gave them power. Did they all of a sudden find power within themselves? No of course not It came directly from Christ.
That being said who is our source of Power this morning? Jesus is, isn’t He? So why look any where else for power than to Christ. Man in of Himself has absolutely no Power, but Jesus on the other hand has all of the power in the World. Why? Because He is sovereign God. What have we been talking about for the past couple of months? Jesus’ power right? How He has power over sickness and diseases and Satan and Sin and Death how He is in control. Remember when we began Matthew we talked about how Matthew was lead to write this Gospel to Show that Jesus is the King. Not a King but THE KING.
Now keep that in mind, the King just gave His twelve apostle’s power. Now this word power carries with it the idea of power in the sense we think of it but also Authority. He was in effect giving the very power and authority that He had to His disciples also. Look at what He allows them to do. The very same things that He has been doing up to this point. Did these guys just decide that they were going to go out and start doing these things? Of course not with out the power that Christ gave them that would have been impossible. They had to know the Source of Their Power.
It is like these light bulbs in this church, what would happen if you flipped the switch back there at the back? They would all turn off wouldn’t they. Why? Because you would cut off their power. They do not have a choice in the matter that is just how it is. The same is true for these twelve and for you and me. We can do nothing on our own. The only way we can do anything is through what Christ gives us. And until we recognize this we are not going to realize that we are Common. It would be just as silly for us to believe that we have power within ourselves as to believe that one of these lights could stay on without electricity.
So do you know the source of your power this morning? Or do you think you can do it all on your own. Do you think you can do any of it on your own? The Bible tells us that there is nothing good that we can do with Christ. That without Him we are incapable of doing anything good.
T.S. If we are going to realize we are common then we must know the source of our power but also we must know we are sinful people.
B. Realizing We are Common Mean Knowing We Are Sinful People
2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
As you look at the List of men who Christ called and gave His power to they do not look like the people you would choose to send out with Power and Authority do they. Let’s take just a second to consider these twelve men and their character before Christ got a hold of them and radically changed their lives.
First look at Simon Peter. He seems like a nice fellow right? He is a fisherman we know that. But what else was Simon? What do we learn about Him as we look through the gospels and even through the rest of the New Testament? Well we know that He was quick to act and speak and slow to think.
Remember the time the disciples were in the boat and Jesus was coming to them on the water? What did Peter do? He wanted to go out to Jesus then what happened? He lost faith in Christ and began to sink. What about the time that Jesus told them that He was going to be betrayed and killed? Peter was so brave as to say to Jesus no you aren’t. How did that work out for Peter? He was called Satan by Jesus. What about when Jesus was telling them they would deny Him? What did Peter say? He said no way if I have to die I am not going to deny you. How did that work out for old Peter? Jesus said yes you are in fact you are going to deny me three times before morning. And guess what Peter did deny Jesus three times before the rooster crowed. How about after Jesus was crucified and buried? What did Peter Do? He went back to His old job and went fishing. So Jesus came to Him and gave Him the instructions of taking care of the Flock. It doesn’t sound like Peter was that great of a man, does it? It sounds like He was sinful and weak. It sounds Like Peter was common.
We are a lot like Peter Sometimes. We act before we think. We jump right into things that we cannot handle because we forget that we are relying on the Power of God and not on our own power. We have to be careful about that. How many of you can relate to Peter? You always jump in head first without ever consulting God about it? I know I have been there a time or two myself.
What about James and John these two guys had to be great, right? NO they were common too. What did they do? Well we know that they were fishermen as well. We see that within the gospels that mess up too. Two different times really stick out to me. First there was the time that they were walking with Jesus and some Samaritans were yelling and hollering at them. What was James and John’s response? What did they want to do? Remember they asked Jesus if they could call down fire from heaven to destroy those Samaritans. They were racist weren’t they? They also didn’t understand the whole point of the gospel at that time. They thought it was only for the Jews and that everyone else was expendable. Much like we do today. For some reason we have gotten the impression that being white makes us better than others. Not only did they hate people who were of a different race than them, but they also wanted prestige for themselves. They were selfish. Remember they had their mom go and ask Jesus if the could sit at His right hand?
They wanted to be noticed. They wanted some recognition for who they were. That sounds a lot like us sometimes doesn’t? Do you ever feel like you should be head of the class? Like you should get your horn tooted more than you do? Well you would fit in good with James and John. We could all probably fit in with James and John from time to time.
Then we could always talk about Thomas who was a doubter. He didn’t believe in the resurrection until He actually saw it with his own eyes. How many of you here this morning are like Thomas, You don’t believe in Christ because you can’t actually touch Him or feel Him. Well if you are then you are going to be in Bad shape because if you see Him and touch Him without believing in Him then you are going to be condemned to Hell for all eternity.
What about Matthew here he is listed as a tax collector. Remember we talked a couple of weeks ago how Matthew was the most hated guy in town. What do you think Matthew’s problem was? Greed wasn’t. He loved money, I am sure. Why else would you betray your own people to a country that is occupying your homeland? That would be like us taking money from terrorists to smuggle in bombs. Matthew was no doubt in love with money. Boy how many of us fall into the same category as Matthew? How many of you here this morning are more interested in making money than serving God? You would rather work than come to church and learn from God’s word. You can’t serve Him the way you should because you are too consumed by greed for more money. Now I know that some folk’s jobs keep them from coming on Sunday mornings. But what about coming on Sunday nights. What about Wednesday nights. IF you can’t make it on Sunday morning there are two other times a week that we meet. Don’t tell me you can’t make some time to spend with God in the place where His word is being taught.
We could talk about the rest of them but I think you get the picture other than one other disciple, maybe the most famous of all of the disciples as far as the world is concerned. Judas Iscariot. How many times have you heard someone be called a Judas because they betrayed someone? I have a lot. His name goes with betrayal. His betrayal is mention right after his name. that is how he is known. He is the only one who was not changed by being with Christ for those three and a half years. Instead of trusting in Christ he trusted in himself and it cost him his eternal soul. He is the perfect example of the fact that just being around Christians and knowing who Jesus is, is not going to mean that you are saved. Just like that old saying, sitting in church does not make you a Christian anymore than standing in a garage makes you a car. Judas perfectly illustrates that you can be exposed to the truth and still dies and goes to Hell
I wonder if any of you here this morning are like Judas. You know who Jesus is and you may come to church and you may even look like all of the other Christians, but you have never trusted Christ as your Lord. You have never put your faith in Him. Is that you this morning? Do you know how to act like you are a Christian? Do you know all of the right answers but there has never been a time in your life where you actually trusted Christ as your Lord? If that is you this morning then don’t delay, trust in Christ today. don’t be like Judas who was so close to Jesus and yet is burning in Hell even as we speak.
T.S. So we have seen that in order to Realize that We are Common we must first of all know the source of our Power and then Secondly know that we are sinful people but what is the third step to Realizing we are common? The second part to knowing we are sinful is looking at these men’s character after they learned from Christ
Remember Peter who was quick to act and not think. Well he becomes the leader of the disciples. We know this first off from this text right here; it says that he is first. This is referring to his rank among the disciples. Does this mean that he is better than the rest? Or that he has some kind of special power or something? Of course not it simply means that He was the one that Christ chose to lead this group of sinful people. It took all of those failures to teach Peter that he was nothing more than a common man. Just like we all need to learn.
You know what happened next? The book of acts says that Peter preached a sermon on the day of Pentecost and 3,000 people were saved. That is amazing isn’t? for this poor fisherman who can’t keep his mouth shut. And he quit running from persecutions too. Remember He denied Christ when he was confronted with danger the first time. But then we see in acts that he is beaten for preaching Christ and gives God praise for it. He is then thrown into prison later on and God delivers him from that. He ends up being a great man of God because he recognized that he was common and that his source of power was not himself but Jesus. The church historian Eusebias tells us that Peter later on was martyred with his wife. The church tradition goes that Peter was forced to watch them crucify his wife right in front of him and the whole time he was telling her remember the Lord remember the Lord. Then when it came his turn he requested that he be crucified upside down. Because he was not worthy to be crucified like Christ.
Then you take the two hot headed glory seeking racist brothers what happened to them? Well Acts tells us that James was the first martyr of the church. Apparently he was the most outspoken or something because he was the first to be targeted by Herod who killed him. So instead of having others killed for the gospel James gives his own life for the gospel. And what about John? Well John went on to write the book of John, then 1st, 2nd, and 3rd John along with the book of Revelation. In his book of 1st John we see a picture of love that we should have for one another that is amazing. So John goes from Hating to telling others that they themselves should love because God is love. We also see his humility in that writing the gospel of John he never even mentions his name.
And of course Matthew the tax collector was used to write the gospel we are reading here this morning and Thomas the doubter gave us one of the greatest confessions of who Jesus is when he said MY LORD AND MY GOD!
That all being said we see that these men who in verse five of this text it says that Jesus sent out were common men who served a great God and the same is true for you and me. We are all common people who serve a great God. No matter how inadequate you may be in yourself know that Christ is the source of your power not you and that you are a sinful person who can’t do it on your own. When you get to that place then God will begin to be able to use you for His purposes in a mighty way. These eleven men were used to turn this world upside down and spread a message that has impacted every level of society in this world today.
How about you do you know that you are a common person this morning, or do you still think you have something to offer God? OR are you on the other end of the spectrum and don’t yet realize that it is common people that God uses? Don’t hide behind who you are what you can’t do because remember it is not about what you can or can’t do it is about who you serve.
T.S. So the first principal we learn from this passage about trusting Christ to do the work is WE MUST REALIZE WE ARE COMMON but we also see that if we are going to trust Christ then we must RESPOND TO HIS COMMISSION
II. TRUSTING CHRSIT REQUIRES RESPONDING TO HIS COMMISSION
A. His Commission Involves a Specific Ministry
Matthew 10:5, 6
Trusting in Christ means we Respond to His commission and first of all His commission involves a specific Ministry. Look at verse 5 and 6, He sends out the twelve but where does He send them? Does he just say hey ya’ll just go wherever you want and I’ll I will see you in a couple of weeks? No He tells them first off to go to a Specific Place then Secondly to a Specific People.
He says first not to go to Samaria or to where the Gentiles are. So He gives them directions as to where they are to fulfill this commission that He gives them. He gives them a specific area of ministry. He tells them to stay away from anyone who is not Jewish. This right here confirms that this commission of the twelve was a temporary assignment. Because in Acts 1:8 He then tells them to go into Jerusalem, the Judea, then Samaria then unto the ends of the earth with the gospel. So Jesus doesn’t just send out the twelve aimlessly there is a plan.
We can learn a lot from this principal here. We see that we are not to wonder about aimlessly but that there should be order to our ministry. We can do this as individuals and also as a church. Focus on one place at a time. Go first to those who are close to you. Your family, your friends, your neighbors. We should all start right there. You say I don’t know where to go and share Jesus! Start right next door to your house. Then after you share with all of them that are close to you, move out further and further until you reach the end of the earth. We can do that through support of missionaries but there is no excuse for not sharing Jesus with those around us. We need a specific ministry in a certain place which begins at home.
The reason that Christ sends them to the Jews this specific people is that the gospel was to come through them to the rest of the world. Paul says in Romans 1:16 that the gospel is to the Jew first then to the gentile. They were the first ones to hear of the gospel. This is a principal that all of the apostles followed throughout the end of the New Testament. Everywhere they went they would share with the Jewish people in the area first then with the Gentiles. But once the Jews heard and rejected Christ because God had blinded their eyes, we got to hear. Ephesians 2:14 tells us that Christ has broken down the wall that separated us. That He brought us near through His sacrifice. This is the reason that Christ had them go to the Jews first. They are God’s chosen people and they were promised the Messiah but when they rejected Him then the chance for us came in.
But like I said we can take this principal of have a specific ministry and apply it today to how we serve the Lord. We can be focused in on what He has given us to do. He has given us the gospel to share with the world. But we can do that only a few at a time so we must get busy and stay focused. So my question to you this morning is are you fulfilling the ministry that Christ has specifically given to every Christian? Are you sharing the gospel with those who are around you and those further from you are at least supporting those who are called to go to the end of the earth. Or are you looking for something to do? If you are going to respond to this commission that Christ has given then you are going to have focus on the specific Ministry that he has given you.
T.S. Not only does this Commission involve a specific ministry it also involves a simple message.
B. Christ’s Commission Involves A Simple Message
After Jesus tells them where to go He tells them what to Say. He says go preach saying The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. So the second aspect of this Commission is a Simple Message. The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand. I would call that a simple message wouldn’t you? This is something that we are lacking today. That Simple Gospel Message. We have gotten to smart for our own good. Now there is no doubt that these men were to expound and explain what that meant. The Jews would for the most part have understood exactly what they meant however, so there may not have been much need for them to explain.
We have talked about this before, what The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand means. It means that the reign or the rule if you will of Heaven which is God has come near. So then it means that God’s rule has come close. Or is close to you. This would mean to the Jews that the messiah has come. This would also lead them to repent and believe or reject and turn way.
Folks we need to go out armed with this simple message. A simple message that The Messiah has come. That He came some 2000 years ago and lived a perfect sinless life as a man, but also as God Himself, then He was crucified and was buried, but He did not stay buried. He rose from the grave defeating death. He is resurrected today and all who will Trust in Him will be saved. It is that simple.
Paul explained it best in 1 Corinthians 2:5
1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with Excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticingawords of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 That your faith should not standbin the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
Paul said I didn’t come so that you would be impressed with how good of a speaker I am. Or at how wise that I am or in anything to do with me but that you would know Jesus and Him Crucified trusting in God’s Power and not mine. We can learn from this ya’ll. When we go we need to go with the simple Message of salvation.
When you share do you share the simple message or do you try to argue people into heaven? Do you try and impress them with your knowledge of the bible and different things? All you need is the Simple Message. There is no need for you to think you can’t share the gospel it is so simple. Don’t complicate it just tell them the story of Christ and what He did for them.
T. S. So what is involved in this Commission that we are to respond to? First We are to have Specific Ministry and Secondly we are to go with a Simple Message and then thirdly there is also Supernatural Methods.
C. Christ’s Commission Involves Supernatural Methods
These disciples were also sent out with Supernatural Methods. Remember in verse one we saw that Christ had given them His authority and power. This was the mark of an apostle. There had to be some kind of authority to show that they were from God. At that point in time they did not have the New Testament. In fact these were the guys who were going to write the New Testament in one way or another. The way that the churches decided which works were inspired of God and which ones were not was who it written by. And if it was not written by someone who was an apostle or directly related to an apostle it was not accepted.
i. Reliance on the Power of God
In order to be an apostle you had to have been taught directly by Christ. Also there were apparently certain signs that went along with this apostleship which Paul refers to 2 Corinthians 12:12 where he is actually defending His apostleship. Remember Paul was commissioned by Jesus Himself. Just as these men in this passage were. These powers that these men were given were the credentials needed to prove that they came in the name of Jesus. This is why Christ preformed them as well. To prove that He is the messiah. All of these miracles we see were preformed for a specific purpose and that was to show that Messiah had come.
As you look through the New Testament like we talked about last week you will see that the only time someone performs an amazing miracle is when God wants to show that His stamp of approval is on that individual. God never performs a miracle without a purpose. And as you read the new testament you see these miracles begin to fade out as the word of God begins to be completed. Take for example the book of Philippians. We are told of Epaphroditus’s and how he almost died when he came to Paul. Notice that Paul didn’t heal him. Why not, Because by this time the whole point of the miracles had been accomplished. So these supernatural methods were first off for giving authority to the apostles. They were like the certificate that hangs on a doctor’s wall that gives him license to perform medicine
ii. Reliance on God’s Provision
Also within these supernatural methods there was to be a reliance on God’s provision. These disciples were to learn who it was that was going to take care of them. Jesus tells them not to take anything with them. Basically they were to go without anything to learn that God would take care of them no matter the circumstances. We can learn from this can’t we? As we fulfill the commission that Christ has given us it will do us good to remember that our support is going to come from God. Now of course He uses His people to do this. So we as a church can learn well that we are to support those who are in the ministry. Such as missionaries. Which I feel that as a church ya’ll do a wonderful job. I know that you have taken care of me and my wife very well.
There is also a verse in here that strikes through most of your so-called healers out there today. It says freely ye have received, freely give. Now tell me how they can say that they are sent by God when they are making a fortune off of the so-called gift that He has given them. These people constantly beg for money from people. I saw a guy on TV the other day that said if you love Jesus then you are going to send me some money. Now that is ridiculous. Christ tells us to support those in the ministry but not those who are looking to get rich off of the Gospel. We are to look out for those people.
iii. Reliance on God’s Providence
I don’t have time to deal with all of that issue because there is one more issue to deal with under this topic of supernatural methods. Not only are we to rely on God’s Power and His Provision, but Also His Providence. I hate to break it you but not everyone who you share Jesus with is going to believe. You know why? Because it is not up to you, it is up to God. God has to draw them in order for them to come to Him and believe in Christ. Look again at verse 14 what is part of this commission? If these people reject the gospel does Jesus tell them to get them in a headlock and begin to try and force them to believe?
No of course not, their salvation is in God’s hands not yours. So what is your responsibility? If you are going to Respond to Christ’s Commission what does that mean? That means you are going to have a specific Ministry. You are going to be focused on that which Christ has called you to do which is share the gospel with everyone beginning with those who are closest to you then also if you are going to respond to this Commission you are going to need to be preaching the Simple Message. Which is the gospel then you are to go with Supernatural Methods. Which we know we can’t heal anyone or raising people from the dead but we can tell them about Jesus who can heal their broken sprit and raise them from the dead spiritually, then all we can do is rely on His Power and Provision and Providence.
T.S. So what have we learned from this passage? That if you are going to Trust Christ to Do the work you are going to have to Realize that You Are Common and Then Respond to His Commission. But there is also something else here that you need to see.
III. TRUSTING CHRIST REQUIRES REMEMBERING HIS CONDEMNATION
A. Christ’s Condemnation Results from Rejection
As you go out and share as I have already said not all are going to receive Christ as their Lord and Savior in fact most people will Reject Christ. What we see here in verse fifteen is that we must Remember Christ’s Condemnation. As we go out we must not forget that there is coming a day when the entire world will be judged and the ones who have rejected the Lamb of God who is Jesus will be thrown into the lake of fire which is the second death. This is important to trusting Christ to do the work because it reminds us that there is a point to sharing the Gospel. That these people who do not know Jesus will burn forever in Hell so this calls us to trust in Him all the more.
T.S. There is a second part to this though that is also important for us to remember about Christ’s Condemnation for those who Reject.
B. Christ’s Condemnation is More Severe For Those Who Hear The Gospel
He tells His disciples very plainly that those who hear the gospel and reject still are subject to an even greater punishment than those who don’t hear the gospel and don’t receive Christ. He says that in the day of judgment it will be more tolerable than for Sodom and Gomorrah than for those who reject those who are sent with the gospel message. You see God’s Word never returns to Him void. Even if someone rejects the gospel it still serves a purpose. In the day of Judgment when they stand before God they will have to answer for rejecting that simple message. Being a sinner is bad enough to get you into hell but Christ tells us here that rejecting the Gospel makes it that much worse on you. The Gospel is a sweet smell of life to those who trust Christ but to those who reject the gospel it smells like death that is what 2 Corinthians 2:14 and 15 says.
So my question to you this morning is are you going to accept this gospel this simple message that you deserve hell for what you have done but Christ has paid your penalty and all you have to do is yield your life to Him. Trust Him as your Lord and Savior. And Be Saved or Are you going to reject Christ and heap upon yourself even more Judgment for the last day?
We learn from this passage that we must Trust Christ To Do the Work. That We must realize that we Are common people and that we are sinful people but that is exactly who Jesus wants to use. He want you to trust in Him this morning and He will use you in the same way that He used those common less than ordinary men 2000 years ago. He will use you for His glory. Also this morning you must respond to His commission that Means that you are follow what He has called you to do which is a specific ministry with a simple message relying on Supernatural Methods which are God’s Methods/
Or you can reject Christ and spend eternity in Hell; the choice is yours this morning. Are you going to yield your life to Christ and give Him everything or are you going to be like Judas who was so close to Jesus and still rejected Him and condemned Him to and eternal death?
What is it going to be? Please give your life to Christ this morning don’t walk out of here undone before God. Don’t waste your life one more day on what you want to do give your life to Jesus and allow Him to use you for God’s glory. No one is to far past the grace of God no one is good enough on their own it is all of God or none of God. So which will it be for you this morning?
