The calling of the missionary is to do the ministry of reconciliation, which is first walking in the life of faith and second proclaiming the message to every one to receive new life by faith [in Jesus Christ]. If anyone has the idea that this is a simple task they are mistaken. As a born again follower and minister of Jesus Christ I face tremendous opposition to which I fight through the “Spirit” of God (Gal.5:16). We want our Honduran brothers and sisters to be established in the true faith. Galatians 5:1 says to “stand fast in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free.” No mistaking that this chapter calls out the very activities which everyone is in some degree involved in while living apart from Jesus Christ: known here as being in the “flesh” (Gal.5:19-21). Friends we MUST see things from God’s perspective. You’ve heard the saying, “You must learn to walk before you can run.” The Christian life is realistically the opposite. When conviction of sin before a Holy God comes, FRIENDS, RUN FROM SIN! RUN TO JESUS! OBEY THE SPIRIT! Let nothing get in your way! Before you can “stand fast” you need to run to Jesus. The apostle Paul wrote to the Galatians in chapter 5, verse 7, “ye did run well”, which shows us there is some running going on. After the running there is the walking (Gal.5:16,25). I think it could be said that when you’re walking in the Spirit, you’re also standing fast in the liberty of Christ. Unfortunately I encounter many people who say they are Christians, but they practice without hesitation the “works of the flesh”. It ought not be so.
