The sent one - Part one

Submitted by Nana Yaw
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? Romans 10:14

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? Romans 10:14-15

Even as it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things, for people to call on Him, believe and have a preacher, there must be a sent one. If a sent one is an answer, then you are the answer to the world! John 17:18, 4:38 Matt 10:16.

Jesus was sent and we have been sent also as Jesus was sent.
Let’s learn the characteristics of a "sent one" from Jesus Christ.

1. SENT TO DIE. (John 18:37)
I define life on earth as purpose being expressed in time. If you are on earth without living your purpose then you are only existing, because time is being spent but no purpose is being expressed. When you give your time, you are giving a piece of your life.

Jesus came to die and asked us to also die John 15. When we give our time, or the resources of our time (life) to reach others for the gospel, we are actually dying - not literally though - Romans 12:1.-"we are a living sacrifice"
If you can be a sent one, who dies for the gospel, people will hear and be saved.
You can! You are sent, and You are able in Jesus name.

With love.
