God has placed us in a world, in a country, in a state and city, in a neighborhood, in a home, where many of the people who we daily are in contact with… are in need of salvation. We are told to GO and BRING FORTH FRUIT! God is not willing that ANY should perish, but that ALL should come to repentance. For that to happen, he expects us to be the vessels that He uses, to lift up the name of Jesus, so that men and women are then drawn to Himself. But doing so in this world today is a challenge. We need to be “up to the task,” and that means that we are going to face barriers, that must be overcome.
