And saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the LORD’S – Obadiah 1:21
In our opening verse above, Esau represents the fleshly, carnal people in the house of God. The verse says the spiritual ones shall rise, and they shall judge the mount of Esau. But here’s the part that I like: He calls them “saviours.” It doesn’t say, “A saviour shall come”; it says, “Saviours shall come.” We’ve been saved by Jesus Christ, and have become saviours; He’s made us saviours. He sent us to save this world. Blessed be God!
This might sound too big for some religious people to accept, but it’s the truth of God’s Word; we didn’t know until God said so. You were saved to save. Imagine if you’ve functioned with this mentality all your life! Imagine living every day with the consciousness that you’re a saviour; it’ll give you a new mindset. You need to be aware that you’ve come into the Kingdom at such a time as this; God raised you for this moment. This is your hour; this is your time; fulfil your calling!
God has raised you to bless and deliver others. You’re called to make the world a better place. Often, there’re people who wonder: “Where do I begin?” It’s simple. Begin by looking out for a human need, and reaching out to meet that need. Every saviour must do that. To become a success with God, that’s where you begin: you look out for a human need, and reach out to meet that need, with the mentality of a saviour and a champion.
Now, there’s a difference between being a saviour and being the Messiah. He didn’t call us the “Messiah,” because there’s only one Messiah, Christ Jesus; but we’re part of Him. We’re members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones (Ephesians 5:30); yet, we recognize who He is: He’s the Messiah (the Christ). He’s made us saviours, representing Him to the nations of the earth. Always be conscious that you’re a saviour to the world.

My Lord and precious King, I thank you for the divine illumination your Word brings to my spirit. Yes, you’ve made me a saviour to my world! I live, conscious of this reality, as a solution provider, an answer to the cry of many, and a faithful dispenser of your goodness and grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
