We are created by God with particular interests, abilities, and personalities. Our individuality is compounded by our history—including our sins, failures, and victories. We are all unique, but God calls us to the same task: to share His gospel. Our individual histories and experiences provide opportunities for us to bring the gospel into the lives of others.
2 Corinthians 5:10-11,14-21
Obedience to God is central to the Christian life. However, whereas legalism requires checking religious boxes in order to find favor with God, true discipleship means following God because there’s nothing else we’d rather do. Many of us share Jesus from time to time; after all, it’s something He’s commanded us to do. However, there’s often no fervor in our efforts and no passion in our story. What if, instead of seeing evangelism as a duty, much like a newly engaged bride-to-be who can’t wait to show off her ring, we couldn’t help but share because we’re so excited about Jesus.
Jesus is the treasure—the diamond worth bragging about. What can you do today to cultivate this kind of perspective about your Savior?
- As you continually behold His beauties, pray God would stir in your heart a genuine excitement that would spill over into the lives of your lost friends, as well as your students.
