“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you”; those are the only words in the song Monday’s Mission by John Tesh. Monday’s Mission, what could that possibly mean? To me, initially it was that Christ died on Friday and conquered death three days later, giving the world a new mission, Monday’s Mission. Today, it tells me about my new job starting on Monday, and what is my mission?
Tomorrow will be the last day I work where I do. I have been there about three months and have had the chance to testify, witness and share the gospel with so many people, the word blessing can’t even begin to describe it. Today though, you know this is the day I should have that spring fever, looking on to better horizons. I walked into the office and two co-workers were sitting there one of them making a crude joke to our secretary. OKAY! Not so crude, but it was “who invented marriage……women, haha” well I’m sure he was about to back it up with a list of points, but the Holy Spirit was preparing for and interjection. “GOD, God is where marriage came from, when He removed the rib from Adam, Adam said ‘this is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh’ after this is stated the Bible says ‘That a man leaves his father and mother and is united with his wife and they become one’.”
A few opinions were made, but someone much more powerful was giving someone undeserving the strength to spread the word. “What is so amazing about this verse, is that from the very beginning God created marriage, and specifically mentions that a man should leave his father and mother, when these two had no father or mother, from the very beginning it was assumed that the father and mother were still ONE, from the very beginning we see God’s creation of marriage and how divorce should be non-existent”
Well, since I had a captive audience, I had the blessing to speak of other small things. Then was challenged with the “why does God let little children be murdered.” well, it was a long discussion, revealing that the dark prince of this world ‘Satan’ has dominion, though God is in control. But, we are gifted with free-will and have the opportunity to kill anyone, a moral obligation not to. Also, that God good He is the creator of love; everything bad in this world is from the devil, it is simply just sin.
Finally, this mini-sermon, focused on prayer and healing, blessings, promises, living eternally in heaven made perfect and new. My friends, what is so amazing about this is that though I have tried to share the Gospel with many before, I did it in baby steps, or allowed the listener to have control. This time though, the Holy Spirit gave me the right words to say, the correct attitude to approach it and perhaps the last time to share it with these two. I had other places to go, so I left with both of them speechless, and that is how our Wonderful God works, such a beautiful experience, the first of many to come. That is what excites me about Monday’s Mission, I am going to a new job, with more people, still in small group settings. Yesterday I was discouraged about the pay cut, but today I am ecstatic for the opportunity to share the Gospel with someone who needs it. “In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy path” well, the lay-off has led my path to a new place, hopefully temporary, but long enough to ignite or re-ignite the flames in the hearts of everyone I come in contact with!
