let's do some math Part I:
I was talking to Veracia during our long bus journey home. So we're actually talking about the importance and urgency in winning souls.
I suddenly recalled of the entry she posted some time ago. She said "
we know that a human spend ⅓ of their life sleeping. an average person spend ¼ of their life waiting for everything."
According to Sy Rogers, by the rate of people being saved in the world, they calculated that around year 2030 the whole world will be saved. Which means:
2030 - 2008 = 22 years
22 years - (22 x ⅓) - (22 x ¼) = 9.67 years left
The total population in Singapore is 4,588,600. The percentage of Christians (excluding catholics - 4.8%) here is 9.8%
No. of Christians in Singapore = 4,588,600 people X 9.8% = 449,683 Christians
No. of non-christians = 4,588,600 - 449,683 = 4,198,917 non-christians
No. of salvation = 4,198,917 ÷ 449,683 = 9.34
Average no. of salvation = 10 (take 9.34 as 10) ÷ 10 (take 9.67 years as 10) = 1 soul/year
Yes, I mean 1 salvation each year. It can be done right? You have probably led a few or a lot or not a single soul to Christ. It time to start to pray for open doors among your friends. There is not much time for you to waste, to wait, to sleep.
If you have led a few to Christ, I don't mean that you should stop reaching out. You should continue to pray and obey God's word. Continue to make a difference among your friends. You never know when the Holy Spirit will set you up.
If you have led a lot to Christ, well done! And that doesn't mean you should stop. This means you should continue to evangelize and win more souls since God is really using you to impact people. After relating to so many people, problems, needs and test, I believe you have great testimonies to share and encourage people being saved or unsaved. You are definitely a person of influence right?
If you have not led a single one to Christ, WAKE UP! Its TIME to work now!
We are believers of Christ. Probably some would say every religion is the same. They teaches us to love people as ourselves. But notice one thing, Christianity is not a religion because our God is alive. Christianity is a relationship with God. It is different from other religion. So why? Yes, most religions teaches us to love people as ourselves. But hey, we are not perfect people. Can we love with or strength? Some people don't even know how to love themselves. Oh well, so why Christianity is different since we all can't love people as ourselves? The difference is we have the Holy Spirit to help us to love. And a normal relationship with people needs commitment so what's more about the relationship with God. This explains why we go to church every week. Our prayer with God is a Dialogue. Its not a Monologue. We talk to God. We don't just pray for our needs. In fact, He knows them all. He is our God, our Father, Our Saviour, He is alpha and omega. He loves us and He is always waiting for us to talk to Him. Ain't my God great? Ain't salvation precious?
It depends on you whether you wish to hear "faithful servant" or "well done" when you meet Jesus in heaven. It depends on you whether you want to meet one or a few fruits or a huge congregation in heaven saying "this person brought me to church". It depends on you whether you want Jesus to call you a servant or a child.
Oh God, I love you.
Different people has different calling but I will follow You. You have the greatest plan for me. I don't care what is my calling, what is my desire. Not my will, but Yours be done. Sometimes, when we know our calling, we tend to be a bit too persistent in our calling. Thinking that, it is not my calling, I can't do that?
Oh Lord, I will not carry such attitude. I love you and I will do what You want me to do. Use me, give it to me. Let me do the things that people do not want to do. You are the best reward. I have not forgotten the promises I make and I will not forget. I will not give up for I know You will provide the strength, peace, love, wisdom and everything I need!
