You're The Protector Of Your Environment

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God (Romans 8:19-21).

From studying the Scriptures, we know that the whole of creation was put under bondage at the fall of Adam in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3). As a result, death, failure, decay and every negative thing came into the world. People began to age, fall sick and die. It became possible for things to decay and be corrupted. This was until Jesus came and saved the whole world; not just the world of men, but of mountains, seas, animals, etc.

The Bible says He bought the whole field (Matthew 13:44) and the field is the world. Now He has given us the responsibility of preaching the Gospel to every creature: "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15). Notice He didn't say "to all men," but "to every creature." The Gospel is the power of God to save men's lives and deliver the whole creation. This means God has given you the responsibility to be the protector of the earth by speaking words of blessings to the world.

We're the seed of Abraham, therefore we're blessed and we carry a blessing. Where we go, God goes, and what we bless is blessed. No wonder God said to Abraham, "...and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed" (Genesis 26:4). The whole of creation has been waiting for us, travailing in pain like a woman about to give birth. Money has been waiting, crying for deliverance from the hands of those who have grossly misused it. Everything around us is groaning, eagerly waiting to be delivered from bondage of this world, into the glorious liberty of the sons of God.

We have arrived to distribute the blessing and we do it through our words. By speaking words of blessings to the world, we protect and preserve it from damage and corruption.

I'm a seed of Abraham; therefore, through me, the world is blessed. I'm the salt of the earth, and by my words I preserve the earth and protect it from bondage and corruption.
