As a Christian you know you have been called commanded by Jesus to share the message of salvation. These instructions were his very last words to us before he returned to heaven. We call these instructions the Great Commission. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. You get that you are supposed to tell others.
We also know in reading the last verses of the book of John that these four books are a mere sampling of what he said and did…. Jesus performed many other s in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. His everyday speech and conversations reflected who he is. The same should be true of us. If we truly have the Holy Spirit actively living inside us, we will be consciously avoiding things like:.
Instead, we will choose to be encouraging, uplifting, forgiving, loving, mending, or just silent. Both of these are true statements. I was recently reminded of just how true these statements are in a not-so-pleasant manner. A man who has claimed to be a Christian for many years was recently exposed as a fraud. Recently, however, while showing these items to someone, it was discovered that this man had failed to remove some tell-tale evidence from the items that clearly proves that he did not make them.
When confronted about the issue, the man became belligerent and anything but Christ-like. Why should non-believers want to be like that? Now I know the man I just spoke of is not the norm—that there are far more true Christians than not. Praise God! But sadly, the ones like this man I spoke of get the most attention. For these things to be the true fruit of the Spirit, Jesus needs to be the reason you do everything you do.
You and I are the ones Jesus commissioned to share his truth. Walk like Jesus Walking like Jesus means your steps lead you in the same directions Jesus went here on earth: Into regular times of worship with fellow-believers.
Your neighbors might not say a word, but they will notice you leave every Sunday morning and at the same time each week for Bible study and small group time. Into areas of service. You donate your time and talents to those in need and to things that serve to spread the message of the Gospel. Away from sin. We also know in reading the last verses of the book of John that these four books are a mere sampling of what he said and did… Jesus performed many other s in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. If we truly have the Holy Spirit actively living inside us, we will be consciously avoiding things like: Foul language Gossip Lies Rude comments Sarcasm Hurtful remarks Words that cause dissention and divide Instead, we will choose to be encouraging, uplifting, forgiving, loving, mending, or just silent.
Ask yourself WWJD and then do just that. Live with the attitude that people would rather see a sermon than hear one…and do just that. Remember that what you do and say could have eternal effects on someone else and DO have eternal effects on you.
You can do this by: Telling them you are praying for situations in their life. Invite them to church. Yes, you can do it. Share a favorite Bible verse with them in the course of conversation where it fits or make it fit. Tell them about ministry and service events you are involved in and invite them to participate. Invite them to fellowship activities at your church. Meet special needs they have. Give them a devotion book for people investigating the relevancy of a relationship with Jesus. Pray for yourself—for opportunities to share and the courage to share Jesus with nonbelievers.
