THEN Jesus said to them, “So wherever you go in the world, tell everyone the Good News.” (Mark 16:15 GW)
Jesus gave all of us some last minute instructions before ascending to heaven. He gave EVERY Christian the mandate of “telling everyone the Good News about Jesus, everywhere you go… in the world.” So, how do you (all of us), think we (all of us), are doing?
“LifeWay Research – indicates that 61 percent of evangelical Christians fail to share their faith on a regular basis, even though they believe it is their responsibility to do so.”
I could fill an entire notebook on this topic, but that will be another time. For now, ask God to help you move out of the 61% of Christians who fail to share their faith with others. God will even send people your way, people that need your story and need a relationship with Him. Don’t be scared. Just be your happy self. Don’t be like that Christian in the picture. (He’s on the left, the 2nd row down, in a purple’ish trench coat, with a matching hat and sunglasses.) He’s like a secret-agent for Jesus. He doesn’t want anyone to know he is a Christian. Hmmmm, I thought Jesus told us to be a light and let our light shine, let it shine, let it shine…..
In Him, Pastor Kevin Kinchen
