Telling Others The Good News

Scripture: Matthew 28:19

Good news is meant to be told.  Think about it— imagine someone went into the bank and paid off your mortgage, your car, and put an additional $1 million in your savings account.  You would tell everyone you know! After all, this is good news.
But, you’ve got even better news.
The greatest news that the world has ever known is that Jesus came to earth to rescue us from our sin.  He paid our debt and we are free to live. Why wouldn’t you want to tell everyone you know? They can be free!
4 reasons why we should tell others about Jesus…
1)   Jesus tells us to do it (Matthew 28:19)
2)   It’s the most loving thing you can do (Galatians 5:22 lists “love” is one of the fruits of the Spirit)
3)   It is wise (Proverbs 11:30)
4)   So others can have “fellowship” with God (1 John 1:3)
Daily Prayer:
God, give me opportunities to tell people about what You’ve done in my life and let my life be a testimony of Your saving grace. Amen.
Daily Challenge:
Share your testimony with someone today. Tell them how God has changed your life.
