"Share the Gospel with others" (04-1-2015) Text: Matthew 28:18-20

Introduction:- As we begin to enter 2015. We may have so many plans and thoughts in our mind. But the most important things is to share the love of God to our family, friends, neighbors and love ones to the people who are still not saved. This is the responsibility of every born again believers to witness and bring the lost for Christ. Many times we’ve been reminded of our duty and obligation to evangelize the lost.Why should we share about Jesus? Because people need Him? Because we look at strangers and just love them so much? Because of duty and obligation? There should be three main reasons why we need to share the Gospel with others. 

1. HEALING THE HEART OF GOD. If you love someone, you’ll seek to comfort them and help them at the point of their greatest hurt. We have a broken hearted Father who has entrusted us with an awesome responsibility and privilege: the expression of His love to a hurting generation. Jesus said, “As My Father hath sent me, even so send I you.” (John 20:21 KJV) Our very name is the “Body of Christ.” This means that our hands must become His hands, our eyes shine with His love, and our voices speak His words. As His people we represent Jesus to the world. Where else will they see Him? We cannot fail His trust. We cannot ignore His broken heart over millions who still walk in ignorance of His plan of reconciliation.CAN YOU LOVE “THE LOST”Don’t wait for a feeling of love in order to share Christ with a stranger. You already love your heavenly Father, and you know that this stranger is a child of His, separated from Him, so take those first steps in evangelism because you love God. When you open your mouth to testify to others as a love response to God, you’ll be amazed at the change that comes in your feelings and emotions. This brings us to the second point. 

2. THE LOVE OF CHRIST CONTROLS US. A great many opportunities to share the Lord are a result of contact with our acquaintances in our work, school, or neighborhood. Unsaved family members are also an important opportunity and responsibility, but we must press beyond the frontiers of routine contact. There are millions who will never be reached unless we take our courage in hand and share with a stranger. The strongest motivation in the world is the indwelling love of Christ. (II Cor. 5:14).“FOLLOW ME”What if Jesus suddenly appeared in the flesh in front of you, calling you away from your friends and beckoning you to follow Him? Where would He take you? Jesus is not attracted to pleasant places and popular people, as much as He is drawn by His great compassion to the dark and lonely places where people are shut away from the eyes of the crowd. If you will just obey Him in making the initial contacts, His love, wisdom, power, and knowledge will be poured out through you. The soul-winning can only be accomplished in total dependence on Jesus, the Savior.We can do it only because Christ’s mighty energy is at work within us.(Col.1:27-29). 3. Obedience: We Were Born To Reproduce.Jesus said, “If you love me… keep my commandments.” (John 14:15) We’ve been clearly commanded to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with every person on earth. (Matt.28:19-20) It’s not an option or a special ministry for a few, but a normal activity in the life of every believer. Just as any marriage naturally brings forth children, we were born to reproduce when we were born again through vital union with Jesus Christ. Conclusion : The gospel of Jesus Christ is good news for the sinner who want to be saved.We should never be ashamed to share.Rom.1:15-16.Would you take this opportunity God has given you another year to share His love with others. Will you ? May God use us to share the love of God to many people in the coming days.Wishing you and your family a blessed New Year.

Thank You & God Bless you. IN HIS LOVE,

Bible a imu bangun… [Lungmon kadalha peh nahiuve, kalungmon kapeh nahiuve, kapeh hi vannoi pehbang ahipoi, nalungu donsah hih un, kijong kicha hih un ati. (Jn.14:27)].
