Open Heaven 2 November 2022 Devotional Message
The Almighty God sent His disciples out in Luke 10:1-6 to preach in households. He gave them so much power just to preach to families – not to organise crusades. He gave them power to preach to households because no platform where you can preach to people is small at all. As long as there is one person to listen to the gospel of the Lord, that platform is big.
In John 4:6-30, Jesus preached to only one woman. It was in the course of that conversation that He gave the powerful revelation that, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:24). While many may have regarded preaching to just one person as a small platform, Jesus Christ said preaching to her was His meat (John 4:32-34).
I went to preach in a small rural Church which had no building. My children snapped the picture of me preaching there and put it on the internet and many people were surprised. I, on the other hand, wondered why people were surprised. It may have been a small Church, it may have been situated in a rural area, but as long as there was someone, just one person there that I could lead to Christ, I gladly went there to preach. In the Bible reading for today, Jesus concentrated a lot of effort into winning that woman’s soul and she brought the whole city to Him.
That little gathering that seems like a small platform probably has the next Adeboye in it. I am a village boy from Ifewara. However, from that small village, God won one soul to Himself and that one soul is now bringing millions of souls to His Kingdom. Never underestimate any opportunity to win a soul. Every platform given to you to preach the word of God is big!
How many people do you have following you on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and so on? How many email addresses and phone numbers do you have on your contact list? All these are great platforms through which you can reach people for the Lord. The next Billy Graham may be on one of these platforms of yours; God may be counting on you to win that one soul to Him. Don’t waste that big platform you have: use it.
There is no such thing as a small platform when it comes to preaching the gospel.
