At that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps and punish those who are complacent, Zep 1:12
There is time when Lord will punish evil and pour out His wrath on wrong doing. Lord says, one group that will be punished will be His people who are complacent. Who does not bother to fulfil Lord’ desires. Lord is looking for people, for His mission. The word says “I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it” Eze 22:30. Lord is looking for rescue workers?
To be a rescue worker is not an option, but this is the call of every saved child of God. Jesus himself said “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” Mat 11:29 True rest comes when we carry the burden of souls and work with Jesus to bring them to the Kingdom of God.
When people demanded for a King to Samuel, and before going back to his house He said “As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right” 1 Samuel 12:23 Let us also be committed to be an intercessor and teach others the true gospel.
Prayer: Father Lord pour out Your love in me that I will carry the burden for souls with Your love. Oh Lord; take away all my complacent nature. Let me live a life of purity and set right example for others; In Jesus Name. Amen.
