Who Have You Told? — Sunday Thought For The Day
In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus gave what has been called His “Great Commission.” He instructed His disciples, and by extension, those of us today who claim to be saved, to go forth evangelizing the unsaved and edifying the saved. But are we doing that?
If you are a true Christian, stop for a moment and think back to how you were saved. Was it by someone witnessing to you of your need to be saved? Was it in church after hearing a sermon? The bottom line is that nearly every true born-again believer today is a Christian because someone took the time to share Christ with them, regardless of the circumstances and/or venue.
So my question becomes who have we shared the good news of Salvation through Jesus Christ with this week; last week, in the past month, in the past year(s)? Have you shared Christ with your children at home or do you just take them to church; if you even attend church regularly as a family?
There is a reason Jesus gave us the “Great Commission.” Is was for us to reach the unsaved with the plan of salvation that rests with and through Him, and Him alone.
How many of us who are truly born-again Christians would be saved today if another Christian had not been obedient to God and shared their faith with us, regardless of where it was and/or what the circumstances were?
If you are truly saved today, when you get to heaven who else will be there because you took the time to share the plan of salvation through faith in Christ with them?
READ: Matthew 28:18-20
18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
