As You Go Today

You're already taking the first step to follow Jesus. "Go, therefore, and make disciples..." (Matt.28) You're already going to school, to work, to the coffee shop, and to a dozen other places. Make a list of all the places you go in a week. You will be amazed at how many people you encounter. How many need to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ?  After Jesus commanded His disciples to "pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” (Matt. 9), He sent out His 12 into the Harvest. As they went, He told them to go and as they went they were to simply go house to house greeting people. If a person welcomed them, they were to stay and share the Gospel. If a person rejected them, they were to go on, shaking the dust off their feet to the next village, the next home.  Stop worrying so much about "who" you will talk to about Jesus. Just go, ask the Lord to keep your eyes and ears open to those He has prepared for you to meet, and then share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them.
