Davidisms - You're in Sales, God's in Management
You’re in sales. God’s in management. It’s not the other way around. We serve the King of Kings, Lord of Lords and are responsible for living out his commands. Jesus commands his followers in Matthew 28:19-20 to take the gospel into all the world. This is not optional. Our job, as his followers, is to share this good news. Jesus was sent on a mission by the Father to live his life as an atoning sacrifice for our sins (1 John 2:2). God loved the world so much that he was willing to sacrifice his son, knowing he would live the sinless life none of us could live. Die the death we all deserved. And make the way for us to be reconciled to the Father and to have eternal life (John 3:16). Too many Christians are hesitant to share this good news. Fearful of being rejected by those who hear this message. Yes, it’s a message that offends the flesh. But it brings eternal life to the soul like no other religion in the world. Your job is to tell others about Jesus. It’s God’s job to awaken them to salvation and draw them to faith in him. Should someone reject the message of Jesus, they are really rejecting him, not you. He will deal with them in his way and in his time. So share. Live each day with the good news of Jesus on your lips. Be ready in and out of season to give a reason for the hope you have found (1 Peter 3:15). Then relax and watch God work. Take the pressure off yourself! After all, you’re in sales. God’s in management.
