The Devil wants to STOP YOU from Evangelizing!

Making Excuses...

Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.
(Luke 14:16-20)

This is a Spiritual Battle!

It is almost comical how this verse comes into play when we get a verbal commitment from someone to evangelize. I have heard some of these same excuses.

Someone literally told me that had to tend their garden and back out of evangelizing. Another said, they changed their mind and decided to sleep. Yes. They said these very things.

This is a spiritual battle. I tell people once they make that verbal commitment to get ready for some warfare. The devil does NOT WANT YOU to minister in public. He will pull out all the stops. It is amazing to see how the devil works through people and situations to STOP YOU from doing the Great Commission!

But, once people get through the barriers and actually go out and minister, they are amazed that they haven't been doing it all along.

I have seen people smile from ear to ear and totally rejoice many times when they finally got to share their testimony with people. Dude! I have seen people get healed and run up and down the beach praising God! What would have happened if we didn't bring the Kingdom out to them?

I have seen many like things that I never would have seen if I checked on my oxen or tended my ground.

You know you need to evangelize. There are people in your community that are going to perish. Is some ground or some oxen more important than their salvation?

And believe me, once you see God move, you will never want to stop working the field. It is rewarding!
