Following God’s Leadership
By Ryan Everritt, CBM National Intern –
I am on my last rotation at Camp Red Arrow and then will be graduating from the year-long Internship program. This is not, however, the end of my journey. I may not want to be a full-time Children’s Bible Ministry staff member, unless it’s what God wants. Still, I want to go make disciples of many nations, as it says in Matthew 28:19 (ESV), “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” As those are the words of Christ’s command, I have such a desire to go and share the gospel.
I’m hoping, sometime next year, I can join with WorldVentures, a missionary organization in existence for over 70 years, that ministers to 63 countries, and they offer training as well. This is something I’m quite interested in. There are so many people out there who don’t know Jesus, as He said in Luke 10:2 (ESV), “And He said to them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.’” The harvest being those who haven’t heard about Jesus and the laborers are those who share the gospel with them.
And, as Paul said in 1 Corinthians 9:16 (ESV), “For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” And again in Ezekiel 3:17-19 (ESV), “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel. Whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die,’ and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, in order to save his life, that wicked person shall die for his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, or from his wicked way, he shall die for his iniquity, but you will have delivered your soul.” And finally, Proverbs 11:30 (ESV), “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise.” So, therefore, I shall look to see where God leads me to next.
