For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
Ask yourself what your purpose is in that particular place you are at, be it your job, family, relationship…what is your purpose and have you fulfilled it?
Many of us love this verse and recite it at any given time but note that Esther was called to save a remnant from destruction and she did, she was willing to die just to save her people. (Esther 4:16)
What if I ask, have you sacrificed for the sake of the gospel? Is it your time? Is it your friendships?
Jesus commissioned you to go out and save souls from destruction (hell)
The greatest commission that Jesus gave us was to make disciples of men
¹⁹Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:²⁰Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
That is your assignment and in case you have any doubts about this, I can refer you to another verse
So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
The Lord will first feed you (He has given you the word, He has given you the Holy Spirit) before He can send you out because you cannot feed others while you yourself are empty.
You have heard the word, are you applying it? You have the Holy Spirit, Are you winning souls? You have been called to be a laborer in the vineyard, how many souls have you caught?
I am a fisher of men who knows how to mend his net should it break
I have been called to change this generation
I have been commissioned for such a time as this
I am a laborer in the vineyard of the Lord
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
