A lot of people use this same mindset when someone tells them about Jesus and asks them to
give their lives over to Him and follow Him. They think, “well, Christianity sounds good, but
what will it cost me?’
At Revive America Ministries, we ask fellow believers to join us in saying the RAM Prayer. “Heavenly
Father, please have mercy on America and send us a nation-changing revival in which tens of millions of
Americans get saved.”
Have you ever felt unequipped to do what the Lord has asked of you? . I have often thought, “Lord, there must be someone more qualified than me for this task.” I realize that this thought comes from my own vanity and worrying what others will think of my efforts and abilities.
Rest is an important theme throughout scripture. It starts all the way at the beginning when God himself rested after creating everything. Genesis 2:2 says, “By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.”
In what is known to Christians as “the great commission”, Jesus gives His followers instructions to go to action. He tells them to share the good news of salvation and to teach others about Him and all that He had commanded them. Once someone receives salvation through Christ Jesus, their work for His kingdom begins. We’re not to keep this great news to ourselves but to share it with others throughout the world.
