I just published a post about the disciples of Jesus Christ. He had told them that He would rise from the dead. After His resurrection, He appeared to different people, and they testified of His appearance. Their testimonies served as evidence to the truth of His words. Their testimony was met with unbelief.
I am not here to discuss that portion of John 21 with you today. I want to talk about how the gospel said at one point they were seen as hiding because they were afraid for their lives. In another gospel, they went back to doing what they were doing before they met Jesus, which was fishing. For 3 1/2 years they traveled with Jesus hearing His teachings and watching the miracles He performed. Recorded in Matthew 28:19:19-20 Jesus gives them instructions on what they must do as His followers. Notice the first word “go.” Get moving disciples! You have a divine assignment to do because you have a call on your life!
Let me bring my thought home. If we’ve gotten to the place in our lives where we are seeking the will of God for our lives, and He tells us, are we doing it?
Are we obedient or are we on the run? Have we chosen to remain in what is familiar? People are waiting for us to fulfill what we have been called to do. Somebody is waiting for us to speak that word that we have been given by the Lord. That song that we hesitate to sing will bless and encourage somebody and help them to hold on a little while longer. Whatever it is somebody is waiting for it. We are needed somewhere, and He has anointed and equipped us for the task He has called us to.
Yesterday we should have gone forth to do what God called us to do. Will you go forth today? Time is moving fast, and we need to be about our Father’s business!
