When is the last time you told someone how to be saved?
When is the last time you shared your testimony?
When was the last time you intentionally sought out someone and told them how they could miss hell and make heaven?
The church is the hope of the world and we must be passionate about telling the good news. The church is not a social club where you come to meet people and make business connections. The church is not a religious group that does good deeds for people to make themselves feel better. The church is a hospital for sinners.
People are sick with a disease called ‘sin’ and the church has the answer. Our mission is to reconnect humans to God! Our vision is: “We exist so people far from God may experience life in Christ and become fully engaged followers.”
We have been given marching orders. Matthew 28: 18-20 says, “And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Did you notice the word “go”? It is an action word. It is aggressive, not passive. God has called us to Go!
Every poll and every survey says that Americans are more interested in spiritual things now more than ever before. Not less but MORE!
We must be about sharing the gospel. Tell your story, share your faith, give out the gospel. People are more desperate to hear than we are to tell!
