The sovereignty of God is often misunderstood. Many are not involved in the Great Commission because they believe that if God wants to save the whole world He can do it without their help.
William Carey, the Father of Modern Missions, met with such response when, in a meeting of pastors in 1787, he raised the question of whether all Christians should spread the Gospel throughout the world.
An elderly pastor told him off, saying,"Young man, sit down; when God pleases to convert the heathen, He will do it without your aid and mine."
Many do not realise that the dominion of this world is given to Man. God, of course, can operate without us but since He has assigned this "first heaven" to us, He must involve us.
Even God could not save us by remaining as "God" in heaven. He had to become a Man to die on the cross for our sins. The wages of sin is death and only a righteous man can pay that price.
Man lost it and so Man must gain it back.
Today, the victory over the evil one has been won at the Calvary and we are now the occupying force.
We have to spread the Good News that the victory has been won and our people have no need to live under the slavery of the enemy.
We have to do the task of evangelism and not God..
