We have been given our marching orders by our Commander in the Faith! It is found in Matthew 28:18- 20, also known as The Great Commission. Our Lord is sending us out to make disciples of all nations, armed with the gospel. Every believer is called to be an ambassador to the faith (2 Cor. 5:20). As ambassadors we represent Jesus and speak the message He has given to us.
Healthy Christians are ones who share their faith. There are times we’ve kept quiet when we knew it was a great opportunity to say something, and yet we didn’t. Don’t let those times hinder your growth. This is a new year and a new opportunity to grow in different ways.
Be reminded and encouraged that the Holy Spirit is your power source. Acts 1:8 “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses…” the Lord has empowered us all. Here’s some ways to get G.R.O.W-ing this year!
- Start wondering about the spiritual condition of everyone you see
- Focus on a small number of non-believers that you can begin to pray about
- Look for an opportunity to turn conversations into spiritual conversations.
- Be ready to be used by God, however He leads.
