Then He told me, ‘The God of our fathers has chosen you to know His will and to see the Messiah and hear Him speak. You are to take His message everywhere, telling what you have seen and heard. And now, why delay? Go and baptise and be cleansed from your sins, call on the name of the Lord.’ (Acts 22:14-16 TLB)
O my precious Lord, You have chosen us to know Your will and to speak Your Word to the heart of Your people. We are to take Your massage everywhere, telling people what we have seen and heard from You. We are not to delay, but go out and baptise them in the name of God the Father, God the Son; and God the Holy Spirit, asking You to cleanse them from all their sin and to call upon the name of the Lord..
We should not try the Lord’s patience – if we do we shall have to bear the consequences of our actions. We should love the Lord our God with all our hearts, minds, body, soul, and spirit’s and accept that He knows what is best for us.
We should never forsake our high calling in Christ, for the empty rewards of those who bargain for our soul’s with cheap offers, putrid and foul in the stench of the sun. The tempting, the counterfeit promises are that strangle our beauty in Christ, and kill our soul’s. We are God’s chosen vessels, His sweet adorable treasure. You have chosen us together with Yourself, so we can together soar to high places, dance on mountain tops, sing with the angels, thrill in the wonder of Your creation, and multiply everlasting joy. So, Father, let us honour our calling, staying close to Jesus Christ, and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God, we commend this prayer to You. Amen.
