Who Cares Anyway?

 

(1 Corinthians 15:58) “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”

(1 Corinthians 3:8) “The one who plants and the one who waters have the same goal, and each will receive a reward for his own action.”

 



As I started to evaluate the last couple of years of my life, especially during the pandemic and the launch of our exclusive online ministry, Karma 2 Christ, I started to get a little sad and disappointed. Sure, we were busy doing all the background work for the new online ministry, learning and understanding all the different social media platforms and apps needed to have a live service. We were busy getting to know our new neighbors and having house meetings and trying to raise funds as we no longer had a physical church to run.

However, our main goal is always to lead as many souls as possible to Christ before His return and I only recalled leading a handful to accept Christ and having only one of them go through water baptism and still continue faithful to Christ.

Immediately, Jesus reminded me of the story of the “Star Thrower”.
(“In his book, “The Star Thrower”, Loren Eisley tells of a day he was walking along a beach where thousands of starfish had been washed up. He noticed a boy picking up starfish one by one and throwing them back into the ocean. When he asked him why, the boy said, ‘if I don’t they’ll die!’ ‘But how can saving so few make a difference when so many are doomed?’ the author asked.

The little guy picked up another starfish, threw it back into the ocean, and said, ‘it is going to make a lot of difference to this one!’ Eisley left the boy and went home to continue writing, only to find he couldn’t type a single word. So he returned to the beach and spent the rest of the day helping the boy throw starfish back into the ocean.”)

I realize now that even one soul that repents and accepts Christ is more than enough to make a difference. Sure I did not change the world in this past year, but those few that heard and accepted the Gospel had their world turned upside down.

It took one adulterous woman that spoke to Jesus by the well to make a whole town become followers of Christ. It took one rebellious Jonah to preach to the king of Nineveh to get the whole city to repent. It took one insecure Moses to face Pharaoh and set over 3 million Jews free from 4 centuries of slavery, and one Ester to face the king and stop the total annihilation of the Hebrew people. Maybe the next person that accepts Christ through our labor will be the next Moses, or Jonah or Ester. Our work is not in vain.

 

 

Every person that gets to hear our message has the potential to change their nation for God if they only submit to the power of the Holy Spirit. Are you that person?
