Why No One Listens?



A young man trying to share the Bible with two young women.

When we as Christians think simplistically about saving souls, especially in regards to our family, friends love ones, and co-workers we set ourselves up to always expect simple solutions recognizable answers, and precise results even under insurmountable situations and circumstances.

But as Christians, we all need to come to terms with the actuality that Satan still exists and he is as strong as ever. But my friends the story does not end there. But through Christ, he whose heart is fixed to serve God will always find the opportunity to be a witness for Him, because the more we can focus on the character and love of Christ the more we come to realize that we must follow Him all the way to Calvary by being A humble servant to others as we carry out Christ mandate to go into all the world and tell everyone of His love, grace, and mercy.

As a story is told about the duke of Wellington who was once present where a party of Christian men were discussing the possibility of success in a missionary effort among the heathen. They appealed to the duke to say whether in his judgment such efforts were likely to prove successful, proportionate to the cost, the old soldier replied:

images“Gentlemen, what are your marching orders, Success he said, is not the question for you to discuss. If I read your orders, they run thus, ‘go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.’ Gentlemen, obey your marching orders.’ So the secret to every Christian’s success as to his or her mandate from God will be found in the harmonious and daily workings of all Christians, along with the Holy Spirit in the finishing up of Gods work regardless of what this world deems as success.

Remember success as a Christian for Christ is not Him asking us to devote ourselves to His cause: but for us to yield ourselves to His will. Every excuse in word and action, with every element of fear and faithlessness to continue witnessing for Him was challenged and answered on the cross.

Therefore, in the sense of one’s faith, genuine heartfelt obedience, and invincible courage, may we prepare each and every day, to hear these words repeated to us, as we stand before Christ at His soon return. “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of the Lord.

While much of the fruit of our labor will not be apparent in this life, God’s workers have His sure promise of ultimate success. As our example, the world’s redeemer was constantly confronted with obstacles each day. He seemed to do little of the work which He longed to do in uplifting, and saving souls, because the forces of Satan were constantly working to obstruct His every move. But He would not be discouraged.

For He would forever stay focused on His goal, which was the cross, and our salvation. So He who does all things according to the will of His Father will always place men under various situations, and circumstances, in order to instill upon Them, duties that will be peculiar to the times in which they live, and the various conditions under which we as Christians are placed.

Especially as we enter into the final days of this life’s history, while constantly studying the word of God and seeking His Spirit daily, as we sustain a heartfelt prayer Life, while allowing the light of Gods Spirit to be open before those we witness to. But remember truth is no more desired by the majority today than it was when Christ was on this earth.

So we must not get discourage as we use Christ as our example forever enduring to the end so never give up, continue the fight to spread the word of God, in this immoral world we live in, and endure, and never give up until the race is over, and you have reach the finish line. So each follower of Christ will most likely have a series of victories, that will not be seen as victories on this earth, but will only be recognized as such in a pure and holy society.

Oh the gratitude of souls that will meet us in the heavenly courts, to thank us for our efforts in presenting the gospel of Christ to them, and at that time they will finally come to understand the sympathetic, and loving interest which was taken by the faithful workers of Christ, so that they may have salvation.

And then, on one accord, in adoration, throughout the heavenly courts, we will victory1all give God the praise, glory and honor, for we will forever recognize, without Satan telling us otherwise, the Love grace and mercy employed in the salvation of mankind on this earth that were ready to parish, until God sent His only Begotten Son, to die on a cruel cross, so that we may all be saved from the penalty of sin.

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: For it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that

believeth…..Romans 1:16 

And now my friends that is how the story ends.
