Don’t rejoice about what you can do

Wednesday, November 26th, 2003 at 10:11 am

Luke 10:20 (KJV) Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

If you are saved, you have your name written in heaven. Many times, saved people rejoice when they overcome evil. Jesus said we should rejoice because we are saved and not because we can overcome evil. Why is this? If others see our rejoicing when we overcome evil, they may not know that we can overcome evil because we are saved. Others naturally will want to overcome evil too – but if they see us rejoicing that we are saved, they will learn how to overcome evil AND learn how to be saved as well.

Share the gospel with those that reject you

Luke 10:10-11 (KJV) But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

Many times, we get our feelings (or more likely our pride) hurt when people reject us or don’t receive us. Even those people deserve to hear the gospel. Jesus commanded his disciples to share the gospel even with those who do not receive them. We should do the same.
