Spreading the Good News

Have you ever seen church bulletins or church signboards, that list their "Mission Statement"? I can't quite figure that out. Didn't Jesus himself give us a Mission Statement? (The answer, is yes: The Great Commission).

Oh the picture to the right by the way is of me (on the far right) and others as we walked The Way of the Cross last month on Good Friday.

Jesus calls every Christian to step out in faith and spread the Good News. This is faith in action and people who obey this command change their spiritual lives forever! There are different ways of doing it. Maybe just frequent messages in a blog like this could be one way. Wherever we go though and whatever we do, every faithful Christian is compelled through obedience to share the Gospel. We don't need a special mission statement that we spend hours and hours writing and voting on. Jesus already gave us our prime directive.

Don't be afraid. It sounds big, but Jesus gives us all we need to do it! With the knowledge that Christ will be by your side, what can you do "to make disciples of all the nations"?
