“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” Matthew 24:14
A “Christian” is not something you ARE; it is something you DO. The world is rejecting PASSIVE Christians in search of winners. Winners GO FOR IT! Besides, the Christian life is simply more fun when you are doing something.
Jesus did not command you to become a Christian; rather, He wants you to become His disciple. A Christian only believes, while a disciple follows, obeys, assists in spreading the Good News, and does something with his faith. Jesus Himself started sharing His faith in the temple at the age of twelve!
You are on a mission (should you choose to accept it) of reproducing yourself. Jesus’ program of making disciples works. He never had an altar call, a show of hands, or led anyone in a “Sinner’s Prayer.” Rather, He sat down by a well and talked conversationally to an ordinary woman in Samaria; and because of her testimony, many more from her town were won to Jesus. (See John 4:5-42.)
Do not be satisfied with sowing seeds only. THIS IS THE TIME OF HARVEST. Reproduce yourself… lead someone else into the kingdom of God!
PRAY: “I love Your Kingdom, Lord. Help me to recognize Your divine appointments. I know You have given me Your power, but help me to exercise the boldness I need to reproduce. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
