But he said, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.” Luke 4:43
People are given jobs to do with every position that they have in jobs. These are jobs that they must do and don’t have an option to choose to not do the job, or else they will lose their position.
In order to keep getting the paycheck, they are willing to do what is required. The good worker will stay focused on what his mission is and not get sidetracked.
As Jesus was getting ready to leave an area, the people tried to stop Him. He told them that He had to proclaim the good news to other towns, because that is why He was sent.
Every person, who has chosen to believe in and follow Jesus, has been given at least one mission. That mission is to proclaim the gospel message, that Jesus came to remove sins and bring new life to all people. How this looks and is accomplished may be different for each person, but the mission is still the same.
God expects every believer to spread the news about Jesus to every one that one can.
As a believer is doing this mission, it will be easy for one to get distracted. The world will try to stop them from moving on to a new place or person. Satan does not want this message passed on. Every time this message is passed on, Satan loses a little more in the battle.
Jesus did not lose focus on His mission, and every believer should be just like Him, not losing focus on the mission. No matter how many people a person gives the gospel message to, there are many more to pass it on to also.
Along with believing in Jesus, you also have the same mission that Jesus was given. You are to pass on the gospel message to everyone you can possibly pass it on to. Do not allow the cares and things of this world to distract you and stop you from that mission.
Millions are dying every day without knowing Jesus and you may be the one to tell some of them. Do not be afraid to testify to what you know about Jesus. Lives are dependent upon your God given mission.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will be a witness of who Jesus is; that you will tell others about the gospel message with no fear; that God will strengthen you to not get distracted from your mission on this earth; and that God will give you strength to do what needs to be done.
