“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19).
What’s God’s favorite game to watch his children play?
It’s not “Show and tell!” but “Go and tell!”
Jesus wants his followers to just go into the world to be witnesses to people “to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). This means sharing the gospel to both those in your community and to those throughout the world. To those who have never heard the name of Jesus.
Too often in our Christian lives we play “Show and tell.” It’s all about us. The emphasis of the Christian life is what Jesus can do for us. My needs and wants, not his.
But the Christian life is to be lived for Jesus and his glory. It’s all about him. It’s not “Show and tell” but “Go and tell!”
Pray today that God would lead you to one person who needs a word about Jesus’s love and forgiveness. Then tell them!
And feel your heart warmed with God’s favor and encouragement.
This is why you were created!
