Luke 9:62 and God’s grace

Once we are called to preach the gospel of repentance we can’t stop.  Seriously, Jesus tells us we can’t.

Most of us couldn’t anyhow. We wake up thirsty for the living water. The fact that you care and are concerned about what he want’s is proof of your fear of God and God’s mercy endures forever.

If you don’t feel worthy  good!  your not, none of us are, but by the grace of God we are given more time and blessing.

Luke 9:62

 ”And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.  Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

If you wake up convicted in your spirit and led to this kind of passage realize that you probably should do more than what you’re currently doing.

Also remember Jesus’s style of preaching? (A kings ransom, walking on water, translating into the locked room instead of knocking after his resurrection with basically “hi guys”) If something is very important he emphasizes it. Even if it’s not technically a law, statute or commandment of his father  the God of all creation. Jesus does use convicting speech to motivate you, yes somtimes by fear, into listening and into action.

Recognize it and get hopping, the time is short for the kingdom of God is at hand.

May God bless you.
