I Am A Tool For The Task

A friend of mine wrote a song some years ago especially for a Mission’s Convention (a series of services dedicated to prayer on how to take the Christian testimony to the lost people, who live around us {home missions}, and the rest of the world {foreign missions}).

The lyrics speak to this commission of God found in Mark 16:15, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” The message of the song applies to everyone, whether they are to go as a missionary, pray for the successful ministry of the missionary, or to give financially to assist in paying for the cost of the work. The words are a message within themselves.


I’m a tool for the task Of the Master’s Great Commission He said go Ye into all the world I have a voice to tell the story And eyes to see the hurting And arms that I can open wide in love Oh, let my eyes see the one that walks in darkness And let and let my arms reach out to love them in your name And let my voice forever tell the story That you loved the world, and that is why you came.

God has blessed, and will continue to always bless, the Ministry of His Word to all people. No part of a work for God is easy. The devil hates the work of God, and will work night and day to prevent it from being successfully accomplished. Christians have suffered every possible persecution, and even death, to follow the Lord in this manner of labor.

Jesus suffered every persecution and humiliation of the devil. He was so tortured by man the Prophet Isaiah said, “…many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men.” (Isaiah 52:14) All this suffering and death was in the Will of His Father. That’s the meaning of John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

Jesus said Matthew 9:37-38, “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest (lost people who need the Gospel message of Christ) truly is plenteous, but the labourers (workers) are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers (workers) into his harvest.”

Are you, or will you, be willing to become a tool for the Master’s use in the harvest? Workers are few. The Master needs, and is looking for, those who will go and be His witness, as well as those who will pray and give to Missions, that souls may be delivered from everlasting separation from God.
