Sharing the Good News

Christ did not send me to baptize people but to preach
the Good News. And he sent me to preach the Good News
without using words of human wisdom so that
the cross of Christ would not lose its power. 

1 Corinthians 1:17 NCV

In his second letter to Timothy, Paul offers a message to believers of every generation when he writes, "God has not given us a spirit of timidity" (1:7 NASB). Paul's meaning is crystal clear: When sharing our testimonies, we, as Christians, must be courageous, forthright, and unashamed.

We live in a world that desperately needs the healing message of Christ Jesus. Every believer, each in his or her own way, bears a personal responsibility for sharing that message. If you are a believer in Christ, you know how He has touched your heart and changed your life. Now it's your turn to share the Good News with others. And remember: today is the perfect time to share your testimony because tomorrow may quite simply be too late.

There is nothing anybody else can do that can stop God from using us. We can turn everything into a testimony.
Corrie ten Boom 

To stand in an uncaring world and say, "See, here is the Christ" is a daring act of courage.
Calvin Miller

All of God's people are ministers; a few are Ministers with a capital M. We are either good ministers or bad ministers; but ministers we are, and as ministers we shall be judged by the Lord on the Last Day.
Warren Wiersbe

What are God's servants but His minstrels, who must inspire the hearts of men and stir them to spiritual joy!
St. Francis of Assisi

Today's Prayer

Lord, the life that I live and the words that I speak will tell the world how I feel about You. Today and every day, let my testimony be worthy of You. Let my words be sure and true, and let my actions point others to You. Amen
