“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.”
God made us with a deep desire to share what we truly love. Somehow, when we connect someone new with what we love, our own “first love” is renewed and grows stronger. So, when was the last time your life clearly led someone to take a big step closer to your first love, Jesus?
Without an active commitment to lead others to Him, Jesus will not stay first and center in our hearts for long. That’s part of the reason why Jesus commands us to go and make disciples (Matthew 28:19). Ultimately, sharing Jesus with people brings the Father glory, but it also helps us grow in our “first love” for Jesus.
Most of us don’t feel qualified or comfortable leading others to Jesus because of common Christian misconceptions. Either you think you can’t lead someone to Christ or you don’t feel like you know what to say or do. However, this week will give you a new perspective on wisely leading other people to Jesus.
For now, why not use this Sunday evening to talk to God about that key question: when was the last time your life clearly led someone to take a big step closer to Jesus and His healing, peace, or forgiveness?
Don’t start stressing about religious obligation or guilt for a lack of a good answer, just focus on the act of love that will bring you both joy and bring God honor. Remember: watching someone else enjoy Jesus is one of the greatest joys of life.
