Let me get straight to the point. When is the last time you and I have talked to someone who doesn’t have a relationship with Jesus about Christ Jesus? Sharing with non-believers where we go to Church and posting scripture on Facebook, doesn’t count. What I am talking about is having a face to face conversation with non-believers about Jesus by walking through the gospel. Some cannot say they have ever shared the gospel with a nonbeliever before.
These are some of the heart felt questions I have been dealing with in the past few weeks. Are we as Christians not supposed to be bold and courageous to communicate the love of God to all people? Romans 10:17 says, “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.” How are people going to hear if you and I are not sharing the gospel? How have we become so comfortable? Am I the same person on Sunday morning as I am on Wednesday morning? Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always even to the end of the age.” What if Tates Creek persued with a greater passion and desire for the great commission?
I know sharing the gospel can be difficult, and talking to someone about Jesus is so contrary to our culture today. But isn’t sharing the gospel what Christians are called to do? There is so much more to Jesus’ claim “follow Me” than we can imagine. It is a total surrender, which is giving everything you have to God and trusting fully in Him. Church, let us step out of our own comfort, be bold for the salvation of other individuals, and be the disciples God is calling us to be. So today, tell someone about Jesus. Today, be bold!
