The Great Commission….. Does everyone follow this, or just preachers and priests? The quick and easy answer for everyone (I hope) is every Christian should spread the “Good News“. This is much easier to say then put into practice. The world today has made to so taboo to be a “Jesus Freak” or even spread the word at all. You can’t speak of God anywhere in public without fear of lawsuits or slander. We are supposed to quietly worship our God and never speak of it to anyone else.
The Preachers and Priests are NOT to be the ones going out and winning souls. We ALL are called to spread his word. The Pastors are, most of the time, too busy taking care of their flock, to be out looking for more. The flock needs to go and get more to bring in.
Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.
Jesus is not saying that he will only alow a few workers, but only a few will heed to the call. There are so many people who are longing to hear his word. Why are we afraid? We wont get arrested, or killed (in normal circumstances) here in the US like in so many other countries. If you want to know how good we have it, go to countries in Africa and Asia, where you have to sneak to church because people will kill you if they knew you where a christian, or if the government heard you had talked to someone about Jesus, you would be in prison the rest of your life. Yet these people still spread the word, and we are too afraid because we might look foolish.
In this video, we have Penn Gillett, from Penn & Teller. He is an Atheist and proud of it. As he talks about this guy who gave him a Gideon Bible. Penn gets this point! It takes him a few minutes to get to it, but listen to what he has to say (omitting the part about no God).
We all understand that sharing Gods word is an act of love. We love each other, and because of that love we want everyone to be in heaven with us and God. Penn makes a profound statement here. “How much do you have to hate someone to not tell them?” Now an Atheist got this concept. Why is it that Christians can’t.
Most of us could say “I have never killed someone.” (I hope). However, if you know someone isn’t saved and you don’t make sure they know that Jesus is the only way to heaven, you are killing their soul! If you tell them and they refuse, they kill it themselves.
There are two questions I want to ask….. How many people have you murdered today? How many more are you gonna kill?
Your Challenge This Week: Be a worker!
Go and Boldly tell someone that Jesus is their savior. When you say something so pure and true, NO ONE can deny it in their heart. You may be laughed at or mocked. They may think you are crazy, but who else better to be crazy for than God?
