In the Great Commission, Jesus tasked his disciples to go and spread the Good News around the world. They were to make more disciples, who would then go make more disciples, and so forth. The Great Commission did not just apply to the apostles; as Christians, we are all called to share the Gospel!
The easiest way, I’ve found, to share Jesus with others is through the power of your own testimony. It is the unique path God paved for you and He will use it to reach people. I have hesitated for a long time to focus on sharing about my own conversion of the heart because it seems so ordinary. I haven’t overcome addiction or faced death. My tendency to compare myself to other Christians opens the door for the enemy to whisper lies to me.
The truth is, I asked God to reveal the moment I fully trusted in Him . . . and He did. Then He gave me my own version of the Great Commission: to share it with others. My ordinary story turned extraordinary when God took over. In full surrender to Him, I found the piece of my heart that had been missing for so long. I looked in all the wrong places: people, things, money, and myself.
All Christians have a God-story to tell. He will use your unique voice to make connections and lead people to Him. You may never know the impact of your story, but when you share what He has done in your life, you are planting seeds. The more you share, the more seeds you plant.
Share away, my friends. I personally LOVE to hear the testimony of others, and invite you to share them in the comments. Take the step in faith and scatter the seeds God gave you.
