The Wisdom of God is Jesus – Don’t Be Afraid to Share the Gospel

wpid-img_20140520_154457.jpgWe cannot be afraid to share the gospel with fear of hurting someone’s feelings. We perish from lack of knowledge. The wisdom of God is Jesus.

When the Holy Spirit dwells in us, it can be hard to not tell others God’s truth. Not to convince them to believe but to help them believe. The gospel is God’s truth.

God gives us all the instructions we need in His Word to live a life righteous and holy. As believers, we are to impart godly wisdom and knowledge without ever being ashamed to tell the Good News of the gospel.

If God had not sent you through the trial, would you have known it was his grace that brought you through? If you stayed stuck in your past and had not visited it, would you have known God’s mercy kept you?

How can you not want to share the good news of Jesus Christ? How can you not want to tell someone else about Jesus so they can experience the love of God and be guided by His principles to experience a better life?

The gospel of Jesus Christ is good news! It is a message of hope for everyone. The gospel is for everyone. It is because of the gospel, through the power of God, those who believe in Christ may be saved (Romans 10:9). It is a message that can give you life, transform, and save. Our desires are removed and replaced with God’s. We desire to do His will and good works. That’s good news!

“Before we can walk in newness of life, we must die to sin. Just as the resurrection gives us Christ’s power to live for him, his crucifixion marks the death of our old sinful nature. We can’t know the victory of the resurrection without personally applying the crucifixion.” (Philippians 3:10)

Keep this as a guiding principle: Live your life in such a way, that God’s love permeates your motives that all you do will be for his glory. Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life (John 14:6).” He prepared a place for us.  Because he lives, we also live. Rejoice!

The wisdom of God is Jesus. Don’t be afraid to share the good news with others. Tell somebody about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Don’t be ashamed of the gospel.

Be blessed! -JD

Philippians 3:10 10 I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.” (NIV)

We Are Commissioned By Christ!

The Great Commission Matthew 28The devil cannot control any part of your life that God does not give him permission with limited access. He needs God’s permission to gain access. And when God gives him permission, his access is limited. God will allow what must be, to see fulfillment of what he commission. Truth be told, the devil has no control. God is in full control.

Jesus appeared before his disciples in Galilee before he ascended into heaven and gave them these instructions, ‘Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20 NIV)

Jesus commands us to take action in our faith anywhere he sends us. Just as His disciples were instructed to go out in the world to proclaim and teach the gospel of God’s kingdom. We are followers of Christ. We are to witness, reach the masses, and lead others to Christ. Fulfill Jesus’ command as he specifically instructed. Teach, baptize. Make disciples.

Be attentive to the Holy Spirit. You have the ability to make significant contributions to help complete the “The Great Commission.” Advance God’s kingdom. Intercede on behalf of others with prayer. Prayer is spiritual warfare. Discern the attacks of the enemy. Defeat any and all devious plans of the enemy. Rebuke that spirit. Take back all the enemy thinks is his. Everything in the earth is God’s, not his.

We’re on high alert. Devil, you’ve been warned. You have been served notice. You are forewarned. Whatever devious plans or tricks you have up your sleeves, you will be defeated. We serve a mighty God. Thank you Jesus!

We are commissioned by Christ! It is our mission to share the gospel, teach, baptize, make disciples, and bring others to Christ. Follow Jesus’ command as instructed. Obey and follow his instructions.

Be blessed! -JD

Matthew 28:16-2016 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’” (NIV)
