Jesus has given us our commandment, our mandates, our marching orders to share Christ. Go, means to share Christ…
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Acts 1:8: 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. 23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
and Mark 16:15.:
15And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
These are our commandments, our mandates, our marching orders to share Christ. Go, means to share Christ…
But more exciting than that…it is our privilege. And what a privilege it is.
We can share with someone, actually anyone, “What Jesus has done in my life.” Who else better to tell your story that you? What a privilege.
I can lift up someone’s spirits by sharing how Jesus has lifted me up when I was down. What a privilege.
Yeah, we can go on and on. But still we don’t always share our Faith.
Don’t know what to say? Start with inviting someone to your church, or to your Bible Study group, or your Sunday School class.
You could start by saying, “If you are not regularly attending a weekly Bible study, like our Sunday School, I want to invite you to mine (take ownership). Our Bible Study starts at 9:30 Sunday Morning at “My Church”. Can I count on you being at Bible Study this Sunday”
Yes it’s a privilege. Let’s do it often.
Our Heart, Our Ministry, Our Mission. To Share Christ.
