Series: Why Evangelise?
One of the best ways in which we can express our love for God, other than worship or our communion and fellowship with Him is the fact that we begin to talk about Him with others.
Many a times we think that we will express our love for God only by conventional methods like praying in public, preaching on YouTube or church etc. But it’s a completely different thing to share about Jesus with somebody. As a church, we have been learning how to evangelize and how to build a bridge in a conversation with somebody or get in touch with someone who is absolutely not a believer.
Let’s understand together why we should evangelize. What are some of the reasons we do need to talk and share about Jesus.
In Mark 16:15, Jesus is telling us to go into all the world and not just within our circle to preach the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
No one is exempted from this commandment. Be it a person next to you in the bus or someone who studies with you in your college or someone you hate in your office. Jesus said, ‘If you love Me, you obey My commandments.’
We think that our expression of love for Jesus is by following particular pattern. It’s not that you following all of that is bad, but one of the biggest commandments in the bible is to obey Jesus. This is recorded in the bible as the great commission. Now can we not just be listeners of this commandment, but also doers?
The commandment in Mark 16:15 is not something you do when and if you have time. This is not an option but a command given by God, the primary thing that the disciples were asked to do. Because Jesus said it, we obey it.
Can you take a moment today and go and speak to somebody in your neighborhood or anybody who needs to hear the gospel about Jesus Christ? Don’t wait for tomorrow!
