A great way to share the good news intentionally is by becoming a mentor.
"So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations: Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to do everything I have commanded you. And remember that I am always with you until the end of time.” Matthew 28:19-20 (GW)
“So wherever you go, make disciples of all nations.” This portion of scripture really stood out to me as I read it today. Wherever you go could mean the grocery store, next door to a neighbor’s house, the bank, the mall, etc. For some it may mean missions’ trips. Jesus made it plain that wherever we go we should take the good news of the Gospel with us. We should be willing to share His love with those we encounter on a daily basis.
Now the question is, are you willing to step out of your comfort zone to make disciples? Most of the church goes into a panic state when the word “evangelize” is mentioned. Normally a picture comes to mind of passing out tracts and witnessing door to door. But what about letting our lives be a witness? What about paying for the person’s lunch in line after you? What about meeting the needs of a single mother that is struggling to feed her family? In each of these situations it would break the fallow ground of the hearts so that they will be receptive to the Gospel.
Our lives should be a living testimony of Jesus. People should see our good works and glorify our Father in Heaven. As you go about your day to day life, be sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s prompting and reach out to those around you. He is not willing that any should perish, but that all will come to eternal life.
Lord so often we get busy with our day to day routine and fail to see those right around us that need a relationship with You. We often take for granted that everyone knows You. Please give us Your eyes so that we may see their needs. Help us to be Your hands and feet to this dying world. We may not be able to change nations alone, but wherever we go we can change one heart at a time. In Jesus' name, amen.
Do you believe that Jesus calls you to be a missionary everywhere you go? If you go through the drive-thru today, pay for the order in the car behind you. If you don't, find another way to break out of your routine and do a random act of kindness in Jesus' name.
