For the Kingdom of Heaven is as a Man travelling into a far country, Who called His Own servants, and delivered unto them HIS GOODS. And unto one He gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took His Journey. Matthew 25:14-15. To the Believer, to him who is adopted into the family of Christ, everything the Lord has is Good, and therefore Good to have. Yes, the Holy Spirit is the only One Who can call someone to Christ, Who knows the Heart of man, and can Woo that man into Repentance unto Salvation, but we Believers are to go and Preach the Gospel TO EVERYONE, and let the Lord sort it all out. We're talking Obedience here, going to men and women as the Holy Spirit directs. He told the Disciples (and us) to go into all the world, yes, AND AS HE OPENS AND CLOSES DOORS. Like a slow moving car with no breaks, we keep moving forward in Obedience to where He directs. He'll send us to places where there's fertile ground and generally keep us out of harms way, BUT, sometimes He'll send a person directly into danger, and possibly death, just to get to one person, or a group of persons, knowing harm will befall them. That's why we really need to Know, Understand, and Obey the Leading of the Holy Spirit in ALL that He says to say and do. Each one of us has no idea when we will draw our last breath, we just have to be willing to Live for Eternity, and Die at any moment. There is nothing scary, frightening, or fearful about any of this because the Believer Knows to Live is Christ, and to Die is gain. It's a win win situation no matter how you look at it. So go Preach, Teach, and Talk about the Gospel of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus, The Christ, ready to Live another day, even if today IS our last day here on earth. We are Equipped to handle any and all situations, at all times, as the Holy Spirit directs us even second by second, it can and will be, that close, at times. Be Obedient, and Be Blessed.
