December 9 Bible Reading

How Do I Do It?

After reading about the Great Commission the last few weeks, you may find yourself saying, “Okay, Jamie, I believe everything you are saying, and I want to fulfill the Great Commission. I just don’t know how.”

I believe it begins with a determination that we will rise to the occasion, step out of our comfort zone, and share our faith with others. We can’t just live in complacency, ignoring our responsibility, and hoping that someone else will help people find salvation in Jesus. Instead, we need to step up and take a risk.

We need to pray that the Holy Spirit will provide us with opportunities to share our faith and seize the moment He opens a door.

One of the best ways to share our faith is to simply share our own story. Tell others about the difference that following Jesus has made in your life.

You can prepare for this ahead of time by thinking through your story, perhaps writing it down, or practicing by sharing it with a friend. Then, when the opportunity arises to share, you won’t be scrambling for thoughts or words, but you’ll be ready.

Remember, you don’t have to sound “preachy.” (In fact, it’s probably better if you aren’t.) Instead, be honest, open, and, dare I say, “vulnerable”? In a conversational manner, share where you came from and the difference that Jesus made in your life. Let them know that this hope for today and eternity is available to anyone who will admit they are a sinner and need God’s help.

Yes, I know; not everyone will want to hear it. Some will say it’s not for them, and others will outright reject it. You cannot determine their choice. However, as a man of God, you are responsible for presenting them with the truth.

Because the Great Commission isn’t an option—it’s a command. It’s the responsibility of every believer. It’s your mission—choose to accept it.

Memory Verse: And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (Matthew 24:14, ESV)
