Go Ye, Therefore

"Go ye, therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit ...." (Matthew 28:19-20)

Have you ever shared with someone else the story of how God saved you? Some people are afraid of doing that because they are afraid they wouldn't know what to say. Or they are afraid someone will ask a question they cannot answer. Do you feel that way?

I believe it is okay for you to say, "I don't know." It's not a sin to be ignorant. It's a sin to be willing to stay that way, though.

God has called you to be His witness. Do you know what a Christian is? A witness - someone who has seen, heard, or experienced Jesus Christ - nothing more, nothing less.

Jesus did not call us to be lawyers to argue a case. He called us as His witnesses. Will you be His witness today?

Have you never shared your testimony because you didn't know what to say? the best way to start is to first, be a good listener. When someone shares their needs, step in to help meet that need if you can. Then ask if you can share what God has done in your life when you had a need.

"For we walk by faith, not by sight" (2 Corinthians 5:7)

In John 4, we read the story of a nobleman whose son was gravely ill. In this particular instance, Jesus chose not to go to the son to heal him. Other times, Jesus went to lay His hands on the sick and they recovered.

Why didn't He do it this time? I think for my sake and your sake He did not go. There are so many of us who think if only we had the physical presence of Jesus, then we  will have the blessings of Jesus. We say to ourselves, "If only I lived back then." Or, "Won't it be wonderful when Jesus returns."

We don't have to live in the past or in the future, we have His Word today. And it's just as real and powerful as if He was here in the flesh. Distance makes no difference to Christ.

What are you waiting on before you step out in faith? It has been well said: When you can't trace His hand, trust His heart. Read Colossians 1:9-14
