MESSAGE:

In 1914, the British Army had approximately 710,000 men enlisted and able to fight, and more than 1 million soldiers volunteered to fight in the first months of the World War I. But by mid 1915, it was apparent that not enough men were signing up to replace the casualties from the front line.

In response, a scheme was launched in 1915. It involved canvassers visiting eligible men’s houses and asking them to publicly declare whether or not they would attest to join the forces.

However, the survey revealed that the number of single and married men who publicly refused outnumbered the volunteers required to sustain Britain’s fighting forces. Subsequently, the Military Service Act was introduced in January 1916 and by March 1916, compulsory conscription for all single men aged 18-41 was in place. In May 1916, the act was extended to include conscription for married men.

The early Church was also faced with extinction and had to resort to drastic strategies to stay afloat to win against the enemies of the gospel.

The early Church had almost lost the vision given them by Christ before ascension (Acts 1:8). But instead of nursing their wounds, these early believers seized the day by turning their persecution into opportunities to preach and reach more people as they spread out from the erstwhile comfort zone of Jerusalem.

The Gospel message is so urgent that no excuse or exception is allowed from those who ought to take it to the needy. Just as the sorrow of death, lack of effort, etc. could not deter those who were scattered abroad from preaching the gospel, we also must never allow anything or anyone make us recoil from the responsibility to show others the way to the celestial city.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If our passion is to see God’s kingdom come, then nothing should stop the spread of the gospel!

COVER TO COVER: JOB 11-15.

MEDITATION

Turning satanic adversity into soul winning advantage

1. The Satan’s strategy

To use death, great persecution, adversity, homelessness, imprisonment of the saints etc to stop the preaching of the gospel vv1,3,4.

2. The saints’ strategy

a. They did not to allow Satan to decimate them. Decimated people cannot preach. They ran for safety as Jesus did and commanded vv1,4, Matthew 10:14,23.

b. They still maintained strong evangelistic presence in Jerusalem through the apostles v1

c. They did not allow allow Satan to achieve his goal of stopping the preaching of the gospel. They turned the adversity into aggressive and strategic evangelism vv4-8.

3. Saint’s solace (during adversity)

a. Satan cannot outsmart God if His saints are obedient and determined to do His will.

b. God knows Satan strategies before he strikes and He has ready made plan to neutralise and turn it to an advantage before He permits it. Romans 8:28.

c. In any adversity, identify the goal of the adversary and deliberately frustrate that goal through the grace of God.

d. Every challenge should be turned to evangelistic opportunity.

A. Ponder on your challenges as an individual, family or Church and seek the face of God on what the evil purpose of the adversary is(are), why God permits it and follow your God given instruction on how to turn them to blessings.

HYMN

Win them one by one

1 If to Christ our only king
Men redeemed we strive to bring,
Just one way this may be done
We must win them one by one.

Chorus:
So you bring the one next to you,
And I’ll bring the one next to me;
In all kinds of weather, we’ll all work together,
And see what can be done;
If you’ll bring the one next to you,
And I bring the one next to me,
In no time at all we’ll have them all,
So win them, win them, one by one.

2 Side by side we stand each day,
Saved are we, but lost are they;
They will come if we but dare
Speak a word backed up by prayer.

[Chorus]

3 Only cowards dare refuse,
Dare this gift of God misuse;
Ere some friend goes to his grave,
Speak a word his soul to save.

[Chorus]

4 Not for hope of great reward
Turn men’s hearts unto the Lord;
Just to see a saved man smile
Makes the effort well worth while. [Chorus]
