All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.
– Matthew 28:18-20 –
As bearers of the Good News of Christ we must be equipped with a sound knowledge of God’s truth. It allows us to answer difficult questions and distinguish sound Biblical teaching from the false, all so that we may lead another to Christ.
The call to share the Gospel is not just to be agreed upon, but to be acted out. It is when we actually try to share the Gospel that we are humbled, grow and experience great joy to be partakers of God’s work.
We are called to share the Gospel as one body of Christ. By sharing our struggles, God’s providence and our learnings we will empower one another to be better witnesses of Christ and not easily lose heart.
Being Christ’s witnesses is not only a task but part of our identity as Christian. As we consciously and consistently try to share the Gospel, we slowly incorporate Gospel-sharing as part of our lifestyle. Consequently and naturally we will be attuned to God’s desire to call His people home.
