Speak Up

Posted: January 25, 2011 in The Word

  So it has been forever since I have written a blog but lately I have felt like this is something that I want to commit to doing more consistently. 

Anyways, over the past couple months God has taught me a lot about how I’m to live out my life to please Him and “shine my light.” I’ve always been the good Christian guy that has stayed out of trouble and stayed in church. Up until a couple years ago I was just trying to be a good kid, but over the past couple years God has really been dealing with my committment to Him. Rather than being luke warm, I knew that if I wasn’t on fire for the Lord, He was spitting me out of His mouth (Revelation 3:16). So in responce to this, I have tried to be the guy that lives his life for Christ.

One thing that Jesus has called us to do that I always think about is to make disciples and share His gospel. Knowing this, I wanted to see my friends, neighbors, classmates, team mates, you name it, accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Growing up I had always heard people say, “preach the gospel with your life”. So that’s exactly what I tried to do. And I thought I was doing a pretty good job. To my dissapointment, I saw absolutely no results. I had no clue why, I think I’m living this good Christian life and the people around me aren’t getting saved. Bummer.

Then I realize something… There are other people in the world that are nice people and don’t have the love of Jesus in their lives. I also ran across this verse.

 Romans 10:14 “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?”

According to Romans 10:14 if we don’t TELL them, they won’t hear the good news, which means they will not believe it. Your life and your actions should absolutely reflect the things of Christ, but if you don’t tell others about Him, they will not know Him.
