Be A Willing Vessel

20 But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who on coming to Antioch spoke to the Hellenists also, preaching the Lord Jesus. ~ Acts 11:20

Simon of Cyrene was forced by a Roman soldier to carry Jesus’ cross. Simon didn’t just go back to his everyday life after coming in contact with the Messiah. No. After this, his two sons became disciples of Christ. Men from the same city as him found Christ as well. So much so that when they came to Antioch, they preached Jesus to the Hellenists.

Today, the Church desires and attempts to keep their encounter with the Christ a secret in the name of tolerance, respect, and love, but this isn’t the purpose of the Church. We are to be the light of the world, for we are to tell and lead people to the Light, Jesus. We are to state the good news and all that He’s done for us. We are to be like Simon the Cyrene, who didn’t keep his encounter to himself but instead told all willing and allowed Christ to shine through him as a willing vessel.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Be A Willing Vessel.
