A Lifelong Task

Everyone has a lifelong task of one sort or another.  For many, perhaps most, the task is a selfish one: to make money and enjoy the pleasures money can buy, to be an important person, one that everyone looks up to; to be an attractive person, one everyone admires. 

For some the lifelong task is on a higher plane.  It is a desire to serve God according to His wishes, a desire to promote the Christian faith as much as one can.  This is a good motive but only when it is done as God directs us in His Word and not some other way.  What are God’s directions?  They are spelled out very clearly in His instructions to His original disciples and to us, His disciples today:

And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  (Mathew 28:18-20)

God directs His people here to change the world, to fill it with His own born-again people, people that obey and live by His Ten Commandments. 

When God’s people begin to obey God; when they stop chasing fantasies as they are doing today, the world will begin to change.  As they continue in obedience, the world will be transformed.  It will begin to approach a world that fulfils God’s purpose.  It will be a very different world than the world that surrounds us today.  It is the task of all God’s people to restore and improve this world. 

It will one day, become a world in which everyone you meet will be a brother in Christ, a friend, a person you can communicate with.  There will be no strangers; even someone you just met on the street is a friend you can talk to and get help from if needed.  This country was like that to some extent a century or even just a few decades ago.  It is rare though, to see such friendship extended to strangers today. 

Are you Gpd’s child?  Have you been born-again?  If you answer yes, it is your God-given responsibility to do this.  You are the highly blessed recipient of the greatest gift anyone could ever receive, eternal life in a glorious environment.  God, the giver of this greatest of all gifts, asks so very little of you.  He asks, merely asks! His desire is to spread this gift to the entire world.  Jesus will not return until this task has been fulfilled and all the world is faithful.  God’s purposes are never frustrated.  Contrary to whatever we see around us today, the world will not end until it fully conforms to and serves God’s purpose.

Sadly many of God’s true born-again people are following a false word today.  It is a word which is a mixture of what God says and what a man says God meant by what He said.  It is false to the extent it deviates from Scripture.  There is such a book, a century-old book, with us today.  It calls itself a Bible but it is much more than simply a Bible.  It contains a Bible, one that God preserved for centuries, but it is combined with a commentary written a century ago by an extremely Godless man. His name was Cyrus I. Scofield, an agent of Satan that pretended to be a Christian minister.  His true background was anything but godly.[1] 

People, even God’s people, are all too easily led astray by falsehoods, especially by falsehoods that claim to be God’s Truth, Hjs very Word.
