Have you ever asked the question, “Why am I alive? or “What is my purpose for being here?” The answer is simple: to know God, to love Him, to live in communion with Him, and make Him known to others every day so that they can experience His love too!
In John 20:21 Jesus told the disciples, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” (NASB)
Jesus is saying this to us too!
The Great Commission is for you and me. Realize that you are a sent one!
People have to hear the good news but often Christians hesitate and keep quiet. Why? Often it’s fear of being criticized or rejected. Fear is the opposite of faith. Fear is the economy that moves hell…it’s what hell thrives on. Faith is the economy that moves heaven!
We need the fear of man crushed by a healthy fear of the Lord. If we lived by the praises of man then we’d die by the criticisms of man. There’s no greater name than the name of Jesus! This is freedom! This is life! This is truth! We need to get this because God wants to use us as a mouthpiece to speak to His people!
2 Corinthians 5:20 says, “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.” (NASB)
Always remember that you have the ability to affect your surroundings… to change lives, your city, and your nation. What would it be like if Christians weren’t afraid anymore because they really believed the gospel?! It would be the life we’re invited into!
We are here to manifest Jesus in everything we do!
If we saw this in our lives we would change
