Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever
We are the instruments of salvation – not God or angels, but humans. We are the ambassadors that God has chosen to carry the treasure of the Gospel to the lost.
Jesus commissioned us to go into all the world and preach His Gospel, to teach unbelievers to observe all the things that He commanded. It is our responsibility, but He did not abandon us to the task. He will be with us to the end of time.
Proverbs 11:30 tells us that a person who wins souls is wise, and Daniel assures us that the wise shall shine as brightly as the sun’s brilliance. Those who turn the sinner to righteousness will glitter like stars forever.
James, the brother of Jesus, caught His vision. He encouraged believers to go after those who strayed from the faith, to refuse to let them go! For every person that we bring to God, we save a wandering soul from death and bring about the forgiveness of many sins (James 5:20).
We are to do our absolute utmost to introduce those outside of the kingdom to the love of Christ. We are the ones to whom He entrusted this task. When we win souls, we will shine like the stars.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you boldly carry the message of salvation through the blood of Jesus into all the world. May many turn to righteousness as you shine like the Son!
