COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA – 18 men between Rush and the Bootcamp
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Acts 1:8 – “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
Matthew 28:19 – “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,”
John 20:21 – “Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”
2 Corinthians 5:20 – “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us.”
Throughout the Bible, we are called to share the good news to the ends of the Earth. I haven’t done that. Sure, I’ve given my life to Christ, I’m a believer, I’ve chosen to serve in non-profits, I’ve attended church forever, I volunteer and I’ve even invited people to church but I now realize I haven’t done enough. If I died today, I’d consider myself a failure in evangelizing to non-believers or those that aren’t on fire for God. We all know lots of people that say they’re Christian and not bad people but they’re not on fire for God.
I can do more. I have to do more if I’m going to follow the word to be a witness and make disciples.
I just finished a study series about evangelism and the speaker shared some advice…he said,
- You’re not going to your kid’s ballgame…you’re going to share the good news and when you’re there, watch the ballgame
- You’re not going to the grocery store…you’re going to disciple to others and when you’re doing that, go ahead and get groceries
The presenter also encouraged us to make lists of concentric circles of people that we need to intentionally visit with to learn more about their faith journey. For example, one circle should be our family, another our friends, another our coworkers. He challenged us…ME…to be intentional and seek opportunities to share.
Think about that…if 100% of what you did was for Christ how would that change your life or your actions or laying on the horn when someone cuts you off or won’t go. This is pretty deep and I’ve doing a lot of soul-searching and I’m proud of how I live and serve most of the time but I’m not “all in” all of the time…I’m not actively seeking out non-believers or fair-weather Christians like I need to be.
So, I’m 50 years old and a little pissed off at myself for not listening to what I’ve heard through the years. I’m a bit ticked off that I didn’t hear someone at 25 or 35 tell me to get my head out of my “you know what” and start living an abundant life by proudly sharing my faith with other. I’m challenging you to not be like me and to start spreading the good news today and don’t wait until you’re an old man like me.
