NEXT STEPS: Learn To Share The Good News

Jesus calls all people to follow Him by joining His relentless pursuit of the world, who will spend eternity in Hell unless they repent of the their sin (criminal activities). He says, “If anyone desires to come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.” This means all Christians must act. Change your schedule! Clear your calendar! Gather for “church” every week! Volunteer to take on responsibility! “Seek first the kingdom of God.” Make your work building up God’s kingdom!

How do we do this?

The next steps are spoken to us by the Lord Jesus in Matthew 28:19,20.

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

The first step is GO and make disciples!

Yes, this means increase the population of God’s kingdom by making disciples just like the ones Jesus made. This is not like the majority of the so-called Christians of today. They are full of themselves! Few make any effort to obey the God of heaven. Few try to build God’s kingdom.

In fact, if they happen to go to a church service, even weekly, they think they have obeyed and done God a big favor. It is your obligation as a follower of Jesus to go to weekly worship gatherings. It is also your obligation to invite and bring others with you. And… it is YOUR obligation to try with all of your heart, mind, strength, and soul to obey God, OUT OF LOVE FOR HIM!

It is your obligation because “we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works..” (Ephesians 2:10).

But, only God can supernaturally transform a sinner into a saint. So what is our part?

First, Jesus preached the gospel.

Matthew 4:23 (AMP) “And He went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the good news (Gospel) of the kingdom, and healing every disease and every weakness and infirmity among the people.”

Jesus relentless pursued all people everywhere.

Matthew 9:35 (AMP) “And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news (the Gospel) of the kingdom and curing all kinds of disease and every weakness and infirmity.”

Jesus prophesied that the real Christians would continue preaching the gospel thousands of years latter.

Matthew 24:14 (AMP) “And this good news of the kingdom (the Gospel) will be preached throughout the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end.”

The apostle Paul explains that if we do not tell them, without the gospel, all people will NOT repent and will be cast into the eternal prison called hell.

Romans 10:13-17 (NLT2)
13  For “Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.”
14  But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?
15  And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”
16  But not everyone welcomes the Good News, for Isaiah the prophet said, “LORD, who has believed our message?”
17  So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.

And even though the Lord Jesus warns us most people will refuse to repent, He calls us to share the gospel so everyone will have a chase to receive God’s free gift of forgiveness and eternal life.

Matthew 7:13-14 (NLT)

“You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way.

14  But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficultand only a few ever find it.
