ANSWER THE CALL
“Jesus spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. GO therefore and make disciples of ALL the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit...” Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV
This command from our Lord and Master is the reason WHY Christi and I get up every day! It is why we have traveled millions of miles, and spent thousands of nights away from the comfort of home; to answer the call and tell the nations how much God loves them. This Great Commission is to ALL of us who call ourselves disciples of Jesus Christ. The TRUTH is everyone is called. But it is our choice to ANSWER THE CALL.
Of course, we are not all called to minister in the five fold capacity: apostles, prophets, evangelists, teachers and preachers. But the call to be a bold witness for Jesus is NOT just for those you see on the platform at church or for those who minister on TV. Romans 1:16 teaches us, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the POWER of God to salvation for everyone who believes...” We don’t need to be famous or have thousands of followers on social media for Him to use us! Our call is to BE BOLD in sharing the Good News. Just before He returns, the last great revival will NOT be known by the names of men. It will be known only by His name, KING JESUS. He is teaching and preparing us right now for OUR PART in that revival.
First, we are all called to financially give to support the Gospel. Thank you TEAM MYLON for answering the call! Christi and I tithe and give offerings personally and at least 10% of all ministry income is given to support other ministries. Another way to answer the call is by serving and volunteering at church. Please understand that ministry means service. We simply need to find our place of service! For example, when Christi and I are going about our daily routines, the Holy Spirit instructs us so clearly where to go and who to share His Love with in everyday places; the grocery store, restaurants, the mall, airport, etc. One man followed us off a plane one time and asked, “Who are you two? I’ve been watching you. You are different!” Another time a painter came to do some work on our home. After being prompted to share my testimony with him, I prayed with him to receive Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Hallelujah!
In Mark 8:34 Jesus explains, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up His cross, and follow Me.” To do the will of God we must lay aside selfish ambition. We were purchased with the precious blood of Christ and our life is not our own. (I Peter 1:19) I Corinthians 6:19-20 also confirms, “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you…and you are not your own? For you were bought with a price…” Our part is to simply be ready at all times to share the goodness of God. He could prompt us during our lunch break to encourage a fellow coworker, to be kind to the sales clerk who seems to be having a bad day or pay for a meal for a police officer or a soldier. It’s time to GO ALL IN because Jesus is coming soon!
Isaiah 6:8 says, “I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will GO for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” We pray that you take a moment to ask yourself, WILL YOU answer the call? This month as we celebrate Thanksgiving, we are reminded to BE THANKFUL for all that God has done for us. What better time to make a fresh commitment to GIVE OUR LIFE as a service to Him and His people? If you have made the decision to deny yourself and take up your cross, please pray this with me,
“Father, I choose to answer the call and surrender my life to your plan. I understand that I was bought with the precious price of Jesus’ blood and my life is not my own. Please reveal to me my place of ministry. Here am I! Send me!”
As you answer the call by sowing your financial seed this month, be thankful for every opportunity to send forth the Gospel. When you do those things that honor God, He will honor you! We HONOR you as men and women of integrity. Please check our itinerary at www.mylon.org we’d love to thank you in person!
We are SO thankful for you!!
Mylon & Christi
