Appropriating the Promise of His Manifest Presence

Matthew 28:18-20 (NET) Then Jesus came up and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Dorine had a reputation for being one of the best dermatologists in her city. As a doctor who had the trust of her patients, she could talk to them and they would listen. Many would try to talk to her about personal issues medical science cannot fix, and she would show them the light that she had found in Christ Jesus. It was through her that a very notorious pop star in that city came to know the Lord. She was able to disciple him and he was now known to be a preacher of the gospel. Many very high profile people like him that wouldn't have listened to the gospel from a preacher were led to the Lord through her because the peace of God radiated through her life and her patients wanted to know about the hope that was the source of such peace(see 1 Peter 3:15). As time passed, Dorine understood why the Lord made her a doctor, gave her exceptional skills, and planted her in that strategic city - she was there to be a witness unto Him.

The most important thing you can be found doing under the sun is making disciples of Jesus Christ. This is the way by which our lives would be measured when we stand before the judgment seat of Christ(2 Corinthians 5:10). We must never lose focus on our agenda. In order to do this effectively, God plants us in different places as His kingdom advancement agents. Some of us are preachers and teachers while most of us aren't. But we are all expected to be witnesses unto the Lord wherever we find ourselves and in whatever jobs we do. Our work is to be witnesses unto the Lord.

Go into today remembering that as you determine to be a witness unto the Lord in the most usual and unusual places, you are guaranteed of His unbreakable fellowship and tangible presence. He promises that He will be with us always(see Matthew 20:20). This promise is appropriated by those who are committed to His kingdom’s advancement agenda of making disciples everywhere.

Prayer: Thank the Lord for the opportunity to be a bearer of his life. Ask the Lord for wisdom and grace to be an effective soul winner in whatever place He has planted you.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
