As Jesus sends out the twelve disciples to preach, He makes this statement: “So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven,” (Matthew 10:32). This verse hit me hard today as I was thinking about my desire to proclaim the gospel to the unreached and helping other believers do the same. Rarely do we consider what is going on in heaven as we are preaching and sharing the gospel with others. If you allow me to put this in my own words; ‘While the Holy Spirit is helping us powerfully proclaim salvation by grace through faith in Jesus, He is telling the Father that we are giving this life-changing message to others here on earth’. All of heaven is engaged in what is taking place here on earth when it comes to declaring the gospel – “the unsearchable riches of Christ” (Ephesians 3:8).
Are you engaged with the priorities of heaven? If not, why not? Heaven is infinitely interested in our representation of God’s eternal plan to those who need to hear and understand His plan.
