You already know God has big plans for you. But what if I told you that you could make plans to do something for God. It can be very easy to say, there is nothing I can do for God, he has everything. But just hold up a little, and think again.
Let’s see 2 Cor 5:18-20: “And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.”
Wow. We have been given the ministry of reconciliation. There is something God wants us to do for him. He wants us to beseech people in Christ stead to be reconciled to God. He isn’t willing for any to perish, but for all to come to the knowledge of Christ. God will not appear to them and preach the gospel to them personally. He needs you.
As you make your New Year resolutions this year, make big plans for the gospel. As a church last year, we made a resolution called the 365 day challenge where we decided that we would speak to one person about the gospel every day. Don’t let 2018 be all about you. What can you do for the gospel? Do it big this year.
