17 Sep CRUSADE – Zaheerabad, India * October 10-13, 2013 * Everyone’s Invited!
In a very familiar passage of scripture from the book of Luke 14:16-23, we are given a wonderful parable by Jesus on evangelism. Jesus tells the story of a great man giving a feast and having sent out His servant to notify those invited that the feast was now ready and they were welcomed to come. The first set of people invited were Jewish or I’d like to take just a little liberty and say “religious” people. Sensing that there was no urgency or importance, they all declined the Masters invitation.
The scripture actually says they all, one by one, began to make excuses. The servant completely dejected returns to the Master to deliver the bad news. Being angry, the Master calls an audible and comes up with a new plan and commands the servant “to go out QUICKLY” into the streets and lanes of the city and bring in here the poor and the maimed, and the lame and the blind, the rejected, the broken and all those who are hurting etc…Immediately, the servant goes out with his new set of orders and invites everyone he can to his Masters feast. He returns with a small army of people and then makes this profound statement to the Master, “There’s still room!” The Master once again sends out His servant to the “Highways and byways” and commands His servant to “compel” them to come in, that My house may be filled!
In less then 3 weeks we will once again be traveling to India to a place called, Zaheerabad. As usual, Zaheerabad is a city/village that we have never been to before. Once again we are going with one clear purpose…to tell everyone we possibly can that they are invited to the Master’s house, to sit at the Masters table and enjoy the amazing, heavenly presence of architect/creator of all we see. To sit with the One who gave His life for all. I believe at the core of my being, it is our (Christian community as a whole) deepest responsibility to go rescue the lost. I understand that not all can go. But if you can’t go, then please help us go. Help us win the lost to Jesus!
All for souls,
