Are You On Duty Today?
“How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; and that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth”! (Isa 52:7; KJV)
Paul uses this beautiful verse in his letter to the Romans as an exhortation to evangelism (Rom 10:15). He asks how non-Christians can believe if no one ever goes to tell them about Jesus and all that Jesus did for them (Rom 10:14-15). We are all ambassadors for Christ (2 Cor 5: 20) and God wants to reach people through us.
As Christians, God has given each of us the ministry of reconciliation. (2 Cor 5:11) We are to explain the route to relationship with God to those God brings across our path. In fact, God commanded us to go to all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15). He told us to make disciples of every nation (Matt 28:19).
Ask God to give you a divine appointment each day to share the love of God and His word with someone. Don’t be afraid, He will give you the words to say! (Matt 10:19) Just do it.
Not everyone will receive Christ the first time a Christian shares with them; someone will sow the word, others water and cultivate and yet others reap the harvest (1Cor 3:6). We just need to hear from God and do our part. Sharing Jesus is so much fun for us and for the angels in heaven (Luke 15:7).
