His Word Reaches Hearts!
Hebrews 4:12 assures us that God's Word is quick and powerful reaching straight to the heart. Our words have no power in themselves but, thankfully, His Words do. The primary need of all people is that their heart be reached with the gospel message - the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth (Romans 1:16). God's Word reaches hearts for eternity!
We are the Messengers of His Word... What a Privilege!
God doesn't need us. As the Creator of all things, He can reach hearts without our help. However, in His incomprehensible wisdom, He has chosen us. Firstly, to save us from our sins by the sacrifice of His Son, and secondly, to use us in spreading that same gospel message to others. Even more incredible is to realize that we are not only working for Him, but with Him (1 Corinthians 3:9)!
What a Responsibility!
With this awesome privilege comes a huge responsibility. Our Lord commanded His disciples to take the gospel into all the world (Mark 16:15) and today we carry out that commission in many ways, including Sunday school classes and youth groups, children's Bible hours and teen nights. However, our responsibility also lies in the fact that we, as teachers, will be judged more strictly than others (James 3:1). God has given us this privilege but He also holds us accountable for what we do with such a great responsibility.
May we walk worthy of our calling and reach hearts for Him (Ephesians 4:1)!
