Sharing The Good News

Sharing The Good News. It is not right when you have the good news and you fail to share it. 2 Kings 7:3 NLT. When Jesus came to the world there were many problems, of all the problems He chose to solve just one and that was the condition of the human heart. The major problem man has is not political, economic or sociocultural it is sin. Jesus came to save us from the main problem we have and that is sin. For those of us who have experienced Jesus and have come into His fold, we have experienced a transformation of our life and God expects us to go into the world and share the good news.

The quality of our world cannot be better than the quality of man. The Gospel is God’s solution to our sin problem, we sinned against God and that had a price but Christ came to pay the price of our sins. In Matthew 4:19 Jesus said, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” Following Christ gives us the capacity to influence men and the greatest assignment we have here on earth is to influence people for God. We are all missionaries, your mission field is  your office, your business, your school. God is counting on you and I to share the good news. God wants us to take initiative and preach the gospel, we have experienced the love of God and now it’s time to go and show it to the world.

Acts 1:8 NLT. When you receive power from the Holy Spirit, it will propel you to be a witness. Throughout the Bible, when people met Jesus they told other people about Him. An example is the Samaritan woman that met Jesus at a well (John 4). We must not be scared to share the good news rather we should desire and love to do it. Romans 1:17 NLT. God wants us to go out with boldness to preach and advertise Him to the world

What is our motivation for sharing the good news?

  • We might feel as though since we have given our lives to Christ that should be enough. Jesus said ‘Go ye into the world’. 2 Corinthians 5:13 NLT. The motivation we have to spread the good news is the love of God.
  • The reality of eternity: You can kill a body  but a soul is eternal. Life is not all about here and now, there is an afterlife, there is a life beyond here. If you have all the good things of life, you can enjoy but ensure that your soul is not in trouble. You may have cars and money and titles but if you don’t have salvation you are lost.
  • For us to fulfil the great commission: Jesus has sent us to preach the gospel. God has a grand plan for our world and we are important parts of it.
  • Because there is an eternal consequence of sharing the good news
