Sharing the gospel - #4

"... 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, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20

Share the gospel with the help of Jesus. He promises to accompany us in our journey. It's not that he is sending us out alone. He plans to be with us every step of the way. We don't have to take on this challenge without help. In fact, the more we lean on him for help, the more successful we will be.

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9

His strength is made perfect in our weakness. In fact, those that are naturally equipped for evangelism may have a distinct disadvantage because they may have a tendency to assume they can handle it on their own. Realizing that you are under-equipped to meet this challenge is a good start. From there, you are likely to ask God for help.
