The Great Commission
Mark 16:15 – He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
My pastor preached a great message this past Sunday, and it’s been stirring in my heart ever since. He read out one quote, by whom I have no clue as I never wrote it down. But the quote itself I’ll remember forever – “preach the gospel everywhere you go and if necessary, use words.”
We’ve been sent on a great commission by our Father in Heaven, to go and show the gospel everywhere we go. At the Gym, the supermarket, at work and even just walking down the road. How are you wearing Jesus? How are you living your life, knowing that you’re saved by God? We don’t need to shout bible verses to everyone we meet – instead, we need to wear it. We need to believe the gospel that saved us. We need to believe it enough to live it.
We need to believe that we’ve been forgiven through grace, so that we ourselves can forgive through grace. We need to believe that we have been made in His image, as His masterpiece, so that we can look at others as His masterpieces too. We need to believe that He has given us a spirit of courage and fearlessness, so that we can go and chase our dreams with full, expectant hearts.
Everything you do is reflecting your inner belief. Do you believe in what He says about you?
