in season and out of season

2 Timothy 4:1-2
I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; [2] Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

God has only required us to give the gospel, at two times; the first is in season, and the second is out of season. But sometimes when it’s out of season we forget the power of the Gospel which makes the time always the right time to reveal Jesus to those that don’t know him.

We think within ourselves, “They don’t want to hear about my Jesus” they will never accept what I have to tell them” But the issue is not does he want to hear about Jesus, it is do they need to hear about Jesus? sometimes when we witness to the lost they won't receive it. that's perfectly OK we have done as Jesus required of us which is to be "good and faithful servants"  Moreover Jesus never said to anyone “You good and successful servant” did he?

Psalm 19:7 say “ The Law of the Lord is Perfect is converting souls”  that tells us is that it is not you and I that convert people’s heart to God, but God’s law which convert the heart of men to God. 

Therefore we must give God’s word both in season and out of season, taking no responsibility or accolades for getting someone to receive Jesus Christ as their savior. Jesus did not ask us to become “good and successful servants, he required us to be good and obedient servants, and that means giving the gospel in season and out season.

Take a moment to look at the video *
