Its amazing as Christians how easy it is for us to get wrapped up in our own lives. We spend so much time thinking about who we should date, what we should wear and all the drama going on at school that we forget to focus on telling people about Jesus.
Days can pass and we’ve never really invited non-Christians into our lives. We haven’t spent time thinking about where our friends, family and our neighbors will spend eternity. So with that in mind here are three reasons we should be telling others about Jesus.
- If you don’t who will?
You might be the only person who has a chance to speak into your friend’s life. You may be the only chance they get to hear the gospel. So don’t hesitate to speak up about Jesus.
Romans 10:14 – 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? (NLT)
You’ve been strategically placed into the lives of your friends and family. Don’t hesitate to tell them the good news about Jesus.
- Jesus said do it.
Some of Jesus’ last words were telling His disciples to share the gospel with others. If Jesus tells us we should do something, then we should do it!
Mark 16:15 – And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. (NLT)
Jesus instructed us to tell the good news to everyone. So we should be doing it!
- If you don’t they might go to hell.
This should be enough of a reason by itself to tell others about Jesus. If you don’t tell the people in your life about Jesus, they might die and go to hell. And hell isn’t that great. So be sure to to look for opportunities to tell others about Jesus. You could get the chance to save someone from going to hell!
Sharing Jesus isn’t always what is popular. It isn’t always what it easy. But it is always what is right. Look and pray for opportunities to share the gospel with others. Ask God to show you people who are ready to hear in your life. Then step out and don’t be afraid to share with others. You know enough to bring someone into the kingdom of God.
