Spread the Word of God
Spreading the Word of God
Seems like every time I read the news or some of the magazines I receive it's always the same thing. Iranian police raid the university dormitory for Christian materials,FARC guerrillas are taught to hate Christians who refuse to follow their Marxist theology. Judges telling people if we find signs you're a Christian we are going to kill you. China attacking Christians . People being tied up,beaten,raped,burned,and murdered because they have turned to be Christians. In China Bibles=prison The apostle Paul faced similar persecution. He was arrested,tried,and shackled before he was sent to Rome. Still he continued to preach the God's word. So why as Christians can't we? After all that's what we are commanded to do. Mark 16:15-16 and he said unto them,Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved:but he that believeth not shall be damned. Everyday Christians are dying for the cause.How many of us are really wiling to put our life on the line for the Lord we say we love and follow? Our presidents have claimed to be Christians and they've only proven to be false Christians. If we claim the Lord is with us and we are with him,why aren't we willing to put our lives on the line for him? After all he put his on the line for us did he not?
John 11:26 says and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. believeth thou not? if the Lord could do that for us why shouldn't we be willing and able to do that for him? The word BIBLE stands for Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth and we need to follow these instructions for our reward is great. Luke 4:18 says The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor,he hath sent me to heal the broken hearted,to preach,deliverance to the captives and recovering the sight to the blind,to set at liberty them that are bruised. Jesus said cast down your nets and follow e and I'll make you fishers of men. That means we are to go out and spread the word. If the Spirit of the Lord is truly in you then you should have no problem being a Shepard and spreading the word at all costs. For the Lord says he is always with us. You can spread God's word in person or on the internet. I do both,I have several sites that I belong to that are Christian. Email me and I'll send you a list. I enjoy serving the Lord through the internet because i meet different people all the time from all over the world and hae become friends with alot of them. They have encouraged me as much as I have encouraged them. If you belong to a church just don't take up space on a pew get involved with some ministries,get involved with the youth. If we teach our children most of them will teach theirs when the time comes. Don't be afraid to tell people about what God has done for you. Be proud of what he as done in your life. Maybe you were into drugs,alcoholic,prostitute,gangs,homeless,or just a regular person use your past and the way you live now as your testimony for the Lord. Maybe you did something and you went to jail but you learned a good lesson and turned to God,use it. Whatever you decide to do,do it with confidence and be proud of who you've become and praise the Lord for it. I remember when I started talking with people about the Lord,I was scared to death. It wasn't until about a month after I started talking with people I learned that out of the 20 people I talked with 12 accepted the Lord and my confidence became alot easier. I've been there, the drugs,alcohol,gangs,homeless,prison,I've been through it all personally so I can relate to the people I was talking with about the Lord. I accepted the Lord and was baptized in may 2001 and have never regretted being saved. I'm not proud of my past but I use it for good and you should too. You may feel as though you're not getting through to anyone, I felt the same too,but always remember you are planting the seed. Always be prepared to back up your preaching. Just because they aren't saved doesn't mean they don't know the Bible. I know alot not saved tha know the Bible better than I do. If you quote the Bible never ever change the text. I always use King James Bible. Don't be afraid to preach to the homeless alot of them are harmless and choose to live that way. Another rule for witnessing is do it in pairs or groups because Jesus said where two or more are gathered in my name there I will be also. Plus it's safer that way too or your sake.God is always good to us,we should be the same to him. We should be like the good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37),but alot of us aren't. We don't want to get involved,or be bothered or are way to busy to lend a helping hand. If we were the one's in need we'd want them to help wouldn't we? So why can't and don't we? Start spreading the word of God. Make this a better country,one we can be proud of once again.
