DO BUSINESS TILL I COME
DO BUSINESS TILL I COME
Read: LUKE 19:11-27
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matt 28: 19-20).
The business of soul winning is dear to God’s heart and today’s reading is a beautiful illustration of God’s expectation and reward system in His soul winning enterprise. Before the nobleman’s departure, he gave each of his ten servants money and commanded them to trade with it while he was away. All ten servants but one traded with their money and yielded profit(s). The unprofitable servant was punished and referred to as a “wicked servant”.
God has given you excellent resources; talents, spiritual gifts, money, and time. He expects you to utilize them in winning souls for Him and expanding His kingdom. Before His departure from earth, Jesus Christ commanded you to do business for Him until He returns, and He will ask you to give account of your stewardship at His second coming.
Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming’ and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. – Mathew 24: 46-51).
The bible declares that he who wins souls is wise. You must be a witness for Christ wherever you are and in whatever you do. You are called to be faithful to this course until Christ comes to take you home, where you will reign with Him in eternity.

Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour?
Jesus says in Mathew 11:28; “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, this invitation is for you. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart; all you need to do is invite Him in, by believing and receiving Him.
Are you ready? Here’s a prayer you can say right now:
Dear Lord, I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of grace. I believe that Jesus died to set me free from my sins. Thank You Jesus for dying to save me. Please forgive me for all my sins and come into my heart. Be my Lord and Saviour. Fill me with Your Spirit and enable me to live for You from now onwards, in Jesus’ name, Amen
