TOPIC: THE CAUSE OF LIVING
And David said, what have I now done? Is there not a cause? 1 Samuel 17:29.
Thought for the day: Vast multitudes of people in the world are in need and you are living to meet their needs.
There was a time the Philistines came up to fight the children of Israel. For forty days, Goliath, the champion of the Philistines defied the army of the living God because there was no one to confront him. In this helpless situation, David was sent by his father to look after the welfare of his brothers on the battle field. When he arrived and heard how Goliath was defying the army of Israel, he became angry and decided to confront him in order to save the Name of the LORD and take the reproach from Israel.
Then he asked, `What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? (1 Samuel 17:26). His brother Eliab became furious against him. But David told him, `what have I done? Is there not a cause?' In order words, he seemed to have said, `There is a reason why I came to the battle ground.'
The meaning of this is, there is a reason you are living. Vast multitudes of people in the world are in need and you are living to meet their needs. There are people that cannot be saved except they hear the gospel; they cannot hear except someone preach to them and someone cannot preach except they are sent. That is the reason you are living - to take the gospel of Christ to the ends of the earth.
Remember this: Vast multitudes of people in the world are in need and you are living to meet their needs.
1. Ask God to reveal His purpose for creating you (if you have not discovered it)
2. Make up your mind to reach the needy with the Gospel of Christ.
3. Use every opportunity to win souls for Christ.

O LORD, I ask that my life will be productive and fruitful. Give me the grace to preach your Word and save sinners, in Jesus' Name.
