Devotional, Messages, The Pastor's Heart

Redeeming The Time

Good Afternoon Y’all

I guess you could say I’ve been set on fire this morning, and if you’d have been in my church’s service this morning you’d know why.

Listen. I’m not interested in being a ministry anymore. I’m not interested in church as usual, I’m not interested in dead religion, and I’m not interested in writing empty messages so that folk with think what a great writer I am. The truth is I could careless anymore about anything other than going after the heart of God, and doing what He’s called me to do. The Bible says this…

“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” — Ephesians 5:15 (KJV)

Friends, Jesus could literally come back at any moment. Any blink of an eye could literally be our last moment on earth, and our next in eternity…but what’s really caught fire in my heart after having coffee with Pastor Cass yesterday and getting more than a few calories from desserts and the coffee jitters.  I got in my heart again that there are over 4 billion people who have never ever heard of the name of Jesus.

That’s why Christlike Ministries NWA exists.  It’s not to make Pastor B famous.  I have always been more excited about knowing that some of the things I’ve written gone all around the world…and hopefully some of what I’ve written is being taken to regions that have never heard the Gospel or knows who Jesus is…and THAT is what this ministry is about.

I’ve never really been concerned about being honored or labeled as a pastor. It’s not about that.  I’m just a man that has a mandate from God to write and do what I can do to do my part to take the Gospel to the nations…and that’s what I do through the Christlike Ministries NWA and Pastor B’s Blogs…and that’s still what Christlike Ministries NWA is about.

I can’t make anyone believe in what I’m doing enough to invest in it. I can only hope that the Lord will put this ministry on your hearts so that I can continue to expand the reaches of this ministry and support ministries like Equip The Nations Missions to continue to reach the unreached with the Gospel.  All around the world and even here in America God is moving…and I just want to get in the river. I want to be a part and do my part to advance the cause of Christ in the earth.  If that’s not valuable to you…if that’s not worth investing in to then there’s nothing else I can do but forget about all that and just pursue God.

And that’s what I’m going to do from here on out. If y’all don’t want to support it you don’t have to…but I am going for the heart of God which is souls, souls, souls…and my way of reaching those souls is through messages like this…and I have to believe that God will provide the means for it and me to continue serving Him.  And that’s what I’m going to do.  Because time is short…and I want to make sure I’m doing my best to redeem the time.

I close this message by simply adding a video of a song that’s been on repeat for a while now. I guess I know why this CD has been on my heart, and it’s because my heart is hungry for God. I’m tired of religion. I just want more of Jesus, Amen!?!

Have a blessed day in the Lord!

Blessings & Grace ~ Pastor B
