Telling about the Kingdom

Is God Calling You to Tell?

Before you can introduce others to Christ, you must:

God's heart for the lost

He came to save us
"For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." (Luke 19:10)

He wants no one to perish
"He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9)

Is your heart burdened for the lost?

God has Commanded us be ready and to go

Go share the Good News and seek the lost
Our Lord has commissioned each of us to share the Good News and "seek the lost." He said, "Go and make disciples of all nations"; and "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation" (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:15). It is our greatest calling, then, to share the love and forgiveness He has given us with those who have never received Him as their Savior and Lord.

Are you ready?
"Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction." (2 Timothy 4:2)

As we follow Christ we become fishers of men
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19)
Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will catch men.”
(Luke 5:10)

Are you following Christ? Will you following him as he calls you to go and share the Good News of Christ?

God gives us power and is with us

God has given us His power though the Holy Spirit to witness.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witness in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.." (Acts 1:8).

God promises to be with you
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19, 20)
