Danger Of Procrastination.
A white American was called to preach the gospel in Africa at 18. He delayed because he said he was not married. When he got married, he said he wanted to have children so he procrastinated again. He was now in his 30’s, he delayed and said he needed money to preach the gospel. He spent the next 30 years building a big business. He was giving money to the gospel but God whispered to him that he had not obeyed his calling. It was in his 60’s that he came to Nigeria but by then he had zero energy to preach the gospel and the time he should have preached had long passed and gone.
He had money but had failed in his assignment.
Many of you listen to people who tell you to do business or get a well paying job before you preach the gospel. A job is good, having money is good but obedience is better. Let God who called you show you what to do, how to pursue your assignment. Do not try to help God. He doesn’t need our help. He needs our total obedience to his instructions.
The Lord will build his church.
