Go and Tell

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 things I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen – Matthew 28:19, 20

Like  the disciples, we are to go out and share our faith with others.  We have good news about Jesus Christ to share with them.  What prevents us from doing so?  I know for me there are several reasons:

  1. I don’t know what to say.
  2. I don’t think I know enough to share anything with anyone.
  3. I don’t know where to begin.
  4. I don’t feel qualified to witness to others.
  5. I’m scared.

I can come up with several Bible verses which will address all of these misgivings/fears of mine.

  1. I don’t have to worry about what to say because the Holy Spirit will do the talking (Matthew 10:20).
  2. Jesus encouraged people to share their testimonies (Mark 5:19).
  3. I should begin somewhere familiar to me like my workplace (John 4:28-39).
  4. Just as Jesus sent the disciples out to witness to others, He will send me out (John 20:21).
  5. Jesus promised that He would be with me when I go out to share the Good News about Him (Matthew 28:20).

So, I have no excuse not to go out there to “a world that is dying, His perfect salvation to tell!”

The Good News
