For those of you who think your words, blogs, efforts, prophecies are to no effect and unimportant: nothing could be further from the truth. What you do is important!
Some think they are so small relative to others and their contributions that they berate themselves, feeling useless and void. I don’t believe for a moment Christ would ever agree to that.
Man, woman: you are NOT that little either for there is POWER in your words and deeds.
And for those of us who believe in the Butterfly or Ripple Effect, we know how one small ripple can change the course of the entire world.
Think about it for a moment. Many of you provide words of encouragement and wisdom. You bring joy to others about messages from our Lord, Jesus and about Jesus.
Thus, don’t judge yourself by the standards of the world that would insist on vast numbers of popularity. Understand that the quality of your message is what is important and that messages from God cannot be matched.
And while you are against a population of billions, your job is the same as mine and that is to bring the message, the truth of the gospel to all that we can. None are unimportant.
And I know that some are ticked off at you because of what you say. Some dislike you because of that: but you persist anyway because you know a higher truth is at work here.
If the ‘better’ preachers were effective, no one would be reading us at all, so therein, the proof there is a need.
In other words: keep at it. Keep hammering away with your message knowing that what you say has consequences; consequences that at times are life or death to the receiver. Yes, hardly unimportant, for what you say can elevate a person out of the throngs of misery. Even more important, for most of you, you are pointers: you point to life eternal through God’s son, Jesus. Nothing could be more important that pointing to the pathway that leads to eternal life. And for that and a whole lot more reasons I didn’t even say, you are the most important gift of all. Thank you for what you do.
