Our Mission as a Christian

Our Mission as a Christian

"He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." - Mark 16:15

Our Mission

Our mission as Christians is exactly as Jesus says here, to go out and spread the gospel to everyone, everywhere. We need to be fearless and spread relentlessly. If we fully realized what would happen to someone who has never experienced Jesus, we would be doing everything we can to spread the good news. We are responsible for at least giving people the opportunity to accept Christ and even if they say no, Christ can still work through that. We are, to quote Matthew 28:19, called to go and make disciples of all nations. Another verse in Matthew (5:16) talks about being a light and it's important that we live like Jesus because people will notice that. 


Why is this so important? In the "long" time we have on earth, it is nothing compared to eternity. The great news is that we as believers know where we are going to spend ours! The very convicting news though, is that not everybody is a Christian. The most loving thing we can do is share our faith with others because, as intense as it sounds, it is a matter of eternal life or death. It is extremely urgent that people know what Jesus did on the cross for us. He made the sacrifice so that we do not have to and that's why it is so crucial. His love for us is what saves us and we need people to believe that so they can spend eternity with Christ. We have a shirt here at Joshua1.com that revolves around Isaiah 40:8, "The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever." His word is proof of his love and it is everlasting and unending unlike anything else. 


It is a terrifying thing to imagine the consequences of not telling people about the King. Imagining the day when we can go finally meet Jesus is one we can't even begin to imagine. It's all incredible except for the part about our friends who we didn't reach. For me personally, I have some friends who are not believers and luckily, I have some time to reach them. How much? I don't know. But we need to be diligent with the time that we do have.


With this, go out and and make disciples. Go be a light for those who may not have one. After all, you may be the only Bible someone ever reads.
