"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15
Not everyone is called to be a pastor, evangelist, missionary or some other minister. That being the case, many sit down and do nothing for the Kingdom. They think that just because they aren't in a pulpit somewhere preaching the gospel they are exempt. Not so. These were the words of Jesus-- "Go ye". This was a command from Him to us who are His disciples-- not a suggestion or an opinion.
When you look at "go ye", it actually means-- as you are going, preach the gospel. So now it no longer applies to only a certain chosen few. It is a command to all of us who follow Him. This means that we are to "preach" the good news (gospel) of Jesus' love and salvation everywhere we go-- the grocery store, family gatherings, the gas station, at work, the doctors office... everywhere. You have heard the expression, "All the world's a stage"? Well for us it is, all the world is a stage... or rather a "pulpit".
Today, wherever you go remember that this is your "pulpit". Ask the Holy Spirit to guide and direct you. Ask Him if there is someone there that needs a word from Him. Ask Him if there is something He wants you to do or say where you are... from your pulpit.
Have a great day. All the world's a stage... or rather a pulpit... in which we are to "preach" the good news of Jesus.
