“As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ - Matthew 10:7
I warned you yesterday. You might get what you pray for!
The disciples were instructed in Matthew 9 to pray for LABORERS to go out into the Harvest field and then in Matthew 10 they were sent out into the harvest field! They became the answer to their own prayers! Today, you will BECOME the answer to what you prayed for YESTERDAY.
Your mission today is simple. GO and PREACH, THIS MESSAGE, “The Kingdom of God is at hand!” So this is what you are going to do:
- GO - Leave your house and go somewhere people are. GO to the store, to work, to school, the mall... wherever! Anywhere people are, there you need to go! Once you get there, you are going to DO the next thing, which is...
- PREACH - Preaching or proclaiming is simply stating a FACT. You don’t need a pulpit or a microphone to preach. You simply open your mouth and state a FACT. So you are going to find someone... anyone that the Lord highlights to you as maybe needing something from Him and approach them. Say hi, ask how they are doing and then tell them, “I need to tell you something.” The next words coming out of your mouth are...
- THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND! - Literally let those words come out of your mouth. Get comfortable saying it, because Jesus told us to! Say, “The Kingdom of heaven is at hand!” or, “The kingdom of God is at hand!” Try, “ Jesus is King and His Kingdom is on the earth!” Whatever works for you is fine, the key is to JUST SAY IT!
Where you go from there is up to you. You can pray for them, encourage them or just turn on your heels and walk away, knowing you DID the Word of God today. Remember, this is about YOU today.
Was that fun, or what?
