The Priority of Spreading the Gospel
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
As the Lord was ascending back up in Heaven, He gave this command to His disciples. However, this command wasn't only just for His twelve disciples, nor is it just to pastors, evangelists, and missionaries, but it's to every born again believer. We should always be ready to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those we met, whether it's our testimony and the example we set for those around us, passing out tracts, or knocking on doors. We should always be soul-conscious, especially because we are living in the last days. Sharing the Gospel with others should be a priority for us this year so that others can have eternal life and enjoy the fellowship, peace, love, joy of God that we experience. You may not always have the answers that someone is looking for, but you have The Answer to all the questions man has, which is Jesus Christ, and all you need to do is point them to Him. If we lift up Christ, He said that He would draw all men unto Himself (John 12:32). This week we have looked at five priorities we should strive to have this new year: prayer, Scripture, forgiveness, sharing our faith, and spreading the Gospel. Make it a conscious effort to have these priorities in your life so that you can be blessed and God can be honored and glorified.
