Jesus knew He couldn’t remain in Galilee; He had to promote the Kingdom of God in the other neighboring cities of His day. This was why in Luke 4:43-44, He said; ” I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent“
Today, we are the promoters of God’s Kingdom on the face of the earth. This is our mission, to promote Jesus every day, everywhere. Just as Jesus was sent of God, we also have been sent. This means that we can also make the kind of impact He made on earth! This is important because it’s only this kind of impact that can change the world.
Promoting God’s kingdom is our responsibility on earth; the governments of nations will not do it for us. God did not send Jesus to become a politician, musician, etc; He sent Jesus into the world to do His will, which was to seek and save the lost. Likewise, we are in the world, but we’ve been called to save the world with the Gospel. However, some Christians neglect this responsibility and have stopped doing the things of God. They’ve stopped promoting the kingdom of God, and as a result, their lives to have stopped moving forward.
Don’t be found doing nothing for God. Don’t let your profession be a hindrance to your work for God. Some would rather please their boss or their spouse than please God. No, we’ve been called differently. Each one of us will give account to God of our responsibility to the Gospel. Don’t wait. Don’t stop. Don’t be distracted. Don’t lose the vision of Jesus. Don’t lose the message that God has given you. Let’s keep the work going; let’s promote the kingdom of God on earth. If you realize that you’ve stopped promoting the Kingdom as you ought to, it’s to make the necessary readjustments and let the zeal of God consume you once again.
