First to those in Damascus, then to those in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and then to the Gentiles, I preached that they should repent and turn to God and demonstrate their repentance by their deeds. Acts 26:20
At different times there are important messages that need to be broadcast or given out to a group of people. Some of these messages are of extreme importance, while others are not as important.
One common broadcast, that is not of high importance, is telling of a major sale going on. Messages of high importance would be warnings given out when there is a hurricane coming in and major disaster is expected.
As Paul was being tried in court, he tells the court that he did was God called him to do. He had brought a message of repentance and demonstration of that repentance by deeds to all the world, both Jew and Gentile.
Every day people are talking about many different things. Most of those things being talked about deal with their immediate life, but not at a high level of extreme importance. People talk about the weather, work, economy, politics, family, sports and more.
While these things can be interesting and somewhat important, they are often not of extreme high level of importance. Rarely are they dealing with life and death.
The greatest message that every person on this earth needs to hear is one that deals with their life for eternity. It is the message that every believer has heard and believed. That message is that every person needs to repent of sins and turn to God and then show that they have repented by their actions–live for God.
Every believer has a mandate from God to get this message out to every person, regardless of their ethnicity or background.
If you are a believer in Jesus, someone had taken time to bring you the greatest message of all time. They took time to tell you about Jesus, the need to repent and the need to live for God.
Now it is your turn to pass that great message on to someone else. Strive to get the message out to everyone and anyone you can. There is no one too great, too small, too good or too bad that does not need to hear it.
All need to be given a chance to repent and turn to God, gaining eternal life.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that your life will demonstrate by action the repentance you have done; that you will pass the message of Jesus to all you meet; and that many will come to Jesus and repent of their sins through your message.
