change is going not coming

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (Matthew 28:19)

Things happen when people GO and serve Jesus.

Things happen when people GO and obey Jesus.

Among some of the most amazing things happening to believers – life transformed.

And they came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man, the one who had had the legion, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid. (Mark 5:15)

So a man who was classified as “demon-possessed” – it can means anything from “strange behavior” to “monster” to “Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” – anyway he became normal because of Jesus.

Yes he did actually become normal – a person with a past condition no science and medicine can cure, no social counselor can handle – such a person was healed and made whole by Jesus.

A person with a condition that drove him to live among the tombs as he could find no friends among his human communities – such a person Jesus healed and made whole.

Jesus was GOING and serving the will of the Father – and things happen as He GO.

As according to the records of Mark, the people were “afraid” when the man with the past condition became normal.

Obviously the community were so used to his past unusual behavior they thought nothing of it anymore. They got used to his screams, strange speech and when things went silence and peaceful – people felt unease.

Now how did that happened!” – People were asking how did that man became normal!

It was a situation beyond human expectation and readiness. But for those who can believe

Jesus was GOING and serving the will of the Father. Jesus preached the kingdom of God and called for repentance – lives were transformed.

The man who was healed wanted to follow Jesus – and Jesus sent him “GO”. He goes and did the will of Jesus, more lives were transformed.

Change is going not coming – Jesus was GOING and serving the will of the Father – people are going and serving the will of the Father as well.

We live in an age where science, technology and medicine have claimed to be in the advanced stage and we have state-of-the-art technology – in fact our modern world have so much state-of-the-art technology we are stuck with hell lots of social problems we cannot solves and diseases epidemics are having the upper hand.

We might as well use all the research funding and send everybody out to preach Jesus – lives are continuing to be transformed as people GO and obey Jesus.

Jesus was GOING places doing the will of the Father – was thirsty and needed a drink.

Jesus met this woman at the well (John 4) – they talk and talk and talk. The woman kept asking questions and forgot Jesus was thirsty. In fact Jesus realized this woman was thirstier and really needed a drink more than He does –

15 The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water so that I won’t get thirsty and have to keep coming here to draw water.”

19 “Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet.

25 The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”

And finally when she realized she “hit the jackpot”, she did not keep those blessing to herself – she GO and called all her friends. If she got social media like we do today – her site might be jammed with high traffics.

Then, leaving her water jar, the woman went back to the town and said to the people, “Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?” They came out of the town and made their way toward him. (John 4:28-30)

People GO look for Jesus – they found their hope of salvation, their lives assured and satisfied.

People GO look for Jesus – lives were transformed.

If Jesus did not GO and serve the Father – this incident at the well might not had happened.

And because of his words many more became believers. They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.” (John 4:41-42)

To GO is to fulfill a vision, fulfill a calling, GO to a place and position where we find our destiny in Jesus.

and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which means Sent). So he went and washed and came back seeing. (John 9:7)

Jesus said GO – he obeyed and got his blessing.

The man who was born blind was made whole. People who were stuck with man-made traditions criticized Jesus did things on the Sabbath.

The man who was born blind gave his real educated opinion

The man answered, “Now that is remarkable! You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes. We know that God does not listen to sinners. He listens to the godly person who does his will. Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind. If this man were not from God, he could do nothing.” (John 9:30-33)

Pharisees were furious and offended that man who was born blind spoke the obvious truth in public – they could have sued him for preaching without a proper ordained license.

That man who was born blind spoke the truth of God – the Pharisees were convicted they should not deny but could not accept. The only verdict was to excommunicate that man who got his blessing from Jesus.

Good riddance to man-made religion – the man GOES and serves Jesus and finds his way to the living God.

Change is going not coming – Jesus was GOING and serving the will of the Father – people are going and serving the will of the Father as well.

Jesus said ““I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

Way” are meant to be “walked” – Jesus is the “way” and we need to walk with Jesus to the Father.

As we GO with Jesus we are GOING to the Father with Jesus.

As we GO and obey the will of Jesus we change and become channels of transformations.

As we GO, we are transformed into the will of God.

As we GO, we shine for Jesus.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, (Matthew 28:19)
