Summary: Your time to work in the vineyard is also very important to God not just your money

May the peace of the Lord be with you.


Acts 17:16 King James Version (KJV)

16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.

*READ ACTS 17:16-34*

Beloved, if you are a Paul or a Jason, you must carry a burden. A burden that will make you pray and say:

1. *"woe unto me if I preach not the Gospel"*

2. *"be it far from me that a day will pass without preaching the Gospel"* etc etc etc.

3. *"Lord I need all the time you can give me to support the spreading of your Gospel of Love"*

4. *"Lord let me use my time to serve you or take me away to be with you"*

Beloved, when you encounter people who are far from God Almighty, who don't know Jesus or are worshiping God Almighty through the wrong channel, your spirit ought to be troubled enough to want to do nothing but preach Jesus or support the preaching of Jesus to them unless the Spirit of God forbids you to.

Beloved this burden should be able to push you to risk all you have to preach the Gospel of Love or support the preaching of the Gospel of Love.

This burden should push you to sacrifice your time, money, life, intellect, emotions, everything you are made of to ensure the effective preaching of the Gospel of Love.

Now, there are many means of spreading the Gospel of Love in addition to the traditional ways, these include sending out recorded audio and video messages, electronic books etc, live streaming of messages on various platforms like social media, TV and Radio.

Beloved, these come in very expensive due to the high cost of tools and equipment as well as airtime and human time needed to successfully do these. If we carry not a burden in our hearts for the world to know Jesus and be saved, we will not contribute all we have to this course.

Many people just think about the money, in these situations. Even though the money is important, one key thing we need to consider, pray for and sacrifice to get is the human time and skills needed to do these. Withou the video man, the photographer, editors, directors etc etc etc, we can't do these.

We may have all the money but still be stuck at one place. Beloved carry the burden to sacrifice your time to support the work and means of spreading the Gospel not just your money.

Believe you me, a lot of people can sacrifice their money but only few will sacrifice their time.

I dare you to sacrifice your time to support the ministry work. Instead of working extra hours in the office go to the church and work for the Gospel, instead of sleeping extra hours on Saturdays and Sundays go to the church h and help.

Take holidays from work not only to travel with the family to holiday around but to travel with the evangelism team to spread the Gospel of Love.

Just your money is not enough, the Gospel of Love needs your time too. You are busy with work, we know, but the Gospel also have no time to waste and needs your time to travel to the ends of the world.

There are still people who don't know Jesus, just because you in particular have failed to put in time, more time actually most of your time to work for the Gospel of Love to reach them.

Your laziness or lack of commitment has given false teachers the chance to reach certain places before us to corrupt and dupe a lot of people so much so that by the time the Gospel of Love gets to them they don't want to hear it nor see us, they sometimes chase us away due to their bad experience with the false teachers.

Beloved, think about this message deeply and change your itenary to have a lot of time to work for God to ensure the Gospel of Love gets to every single soul on this earth.

We don't just need your money, WE NEED YOUR TIME MORE.

Beloved, *IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. Just look to Jesus, the GREAT COMMISSION, the work needed to be done, the souls perishing etc etc and do more with your time for the Gospel of Love to reach the uttermost parts of the world.

Prayer: Father please help me to be able to sacrifice more time and do more with my time for your Gospel. I want to have time for you Jesus, show me the way please. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
