Above all, I want to thank God for the privilege He has given us, as Christians of this generation, to see – through this pandemic – his powerful hand calling men to repentance and his Church to a spiritual awakening, becoming light in a world darkened by evil, injustice, and pride.
We, as evangelists, recognize that the fields are ripe for harvest. Today’s man, puffed up by his scientific and technological achievements, now faces the reality – repeated many times in the scripture – “As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.” (Psalms 103:15-16) Today, God has prepared the ground for us. Now we must sow the seeds. Who knows if we are about to see a great revival in our day? Who knows if we are approaching the end of History? We don’t know, nevertheless, we must serve our generation by boldly proclaiming the unique message of the Gospel.
We proclaim Christ and only Christ, the Bible and only the Bible, faith and only faith, grace and only grace! To God and only to Him be all the glory! May this once again become our banner in the battle.
May the Lord fill us with his grace and his power to continue proclaiming to the world the righteousness of the One who called us from darkness to his marvelous light!
We can then say together with the Apostle Paul:
…I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me–the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.
