When you receive good news, you usually tell people about it, right? It could be something as little as you getting pizza for dinner. You would go run and tell your little brother that you’re so excited because your getting pizza tonight! Good news makes things exciting and people happy! Well, we all have Good News to share. Why don’t we? Why are we being silent? Why are we not telling others the Good News that saves people, makes people feel loved, and makes life worth living for?
“And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.’” Mark 16:15
As Christians, we should be spreading the Good News. Well some people may ask, “what is this good news you’re talking about?”
We have a loving God. God sent His ONE and ONLY Son to get betrayed, bullied, and killed for you and your sins. Before you were even born, Jesus got nailed to a cross to die for your sins. He then rose from the dead, after 3 days (Easter), and conquered death. Because our God and Jesus love us so much, we are offered a gift. The gift is to be saved! When you are saved, you live for God, you spread His Gospel, and you live in His Kingdom, for eternity. (“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have an eternal life.” John 3:16)
It can be intimating to spread the Gospel. Especially when we don’t know how people will react to it. Some people may not believe in God, others may not quite understand it yet. And that is OKAY.
We’re not here to shove religion down someones throat, or to make them believe. We’re here to share our story; how the Good News changed OUR life. We are here to plant the seed, and allow the Holy Spirit to do the rest.
However, we have to align our walk with our talk. How would it work if you partied every weekend, cussed every conversation, or gossiped about each person you come across, but tried to share the Gospel? How would people out of Christianity start seeing Christians? Hypocrites? Fake? “Christ said that you should “let your light shine” so that others will want to come unto Him. Instead…you’re like a walking fire hydrant, extinguishing any light that might be burning faintly within others.” There is a difference between making mistakes, and the lifestyle you’re living. In order to share the Good News, our lives should represent it; the way we love others, care for others, and even talk to others. Be gentle, be kind, be loving.
“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24
Don’t miss out on an opportunity to bring someone to Christ. We’d be missing them in Heaven.
It is never about Jesus if it’s always about us.
I pray that The Lord may speak to you through me, I can only hope I can help you in your relationship with Christ.
