Progress as a believer is your ability to individualise the proclamations in the Bible. Yes, God was talking to a people and sometimes to someone else, but today, God is talking to you through the scriptures.
Every blessing must be embraced with this mindset and every mandate as such.
It’s true that the great commission was for believers, but it is also to you as an individual, being a believer.
The great commission isn’t so important that we embrace it as a group as we should embrace it as “individuals”
Look at the great commission again… “Go ye into ALL THE WORLD and preach THE GOSPEL to every creation” (Mark 16:15)
The commission is for believers to go into all the world first, and then preach the Gospel. It didn’t say you should preach the Gospel while going to all the world. The instruction was to get in first… Which is very important!
The Gospel won’t take you in, your romance with EXCELLENCE will…
When the Bible said “All the world”
First, you have to understand what kind of world it’s referring to…
World means the entire human race, it means the universe, it means our planet, and it means a group perspective or social setting which is what this scripture was actually referring to.
There are a lot of social settings we have been commissioned to go in first, then preach the Gospel.
The question is, how do you know the one that you’ve actually been pre-commission for?
Simple… Your world is your sphere of influence or the industry of your business, professional, vocational or career expression.
What happens is this… When God wants to redeemed a career or profession, he creates an individual with abilities to function in the capacity of that career or profession. That’s why we were all born with talents to do certain things.
Once you get born again, your calling is to witness the Gospel in the sector of your career or profession.
For instance if you’re into modelling, your world is modelling… The souls you are to reach out to primarily are those into modelling in one way or the other.
If you are in government, your primary audience are politicians.
Your witnessing of the Gospel however, is in three forms…
Firstly, to preach the Gospel in the language of your industry.
Secondly, to rise up to become a leading authority that will enthrone the values of the Kingdom in your industry by leadership and influence.
And finally, to communicate to society by your success in that industry that it’s 100% Jesus
Whichever form, you have to work with the flavour of excellence.
The idea is to quickly rise to leadership and transform that industry for God.
Wait no more…
Do the needful. All creation wait your manifestation.
Get clarity if you should. Get a mentor if you can. But always remember that this is beyond you. It is kingdom versus Kingdom and you are there as an ambassador and army of the Kingdom of God for such a time as this.
What are you passionate about?
What change do you wish to bring in society?
Go in the might of God. The Industry is in your hand
