Someone's Gotta Do It

Preach It, Brother
Preach It, Brother (Photo credit: Steve Snodgrass)

May God be merciful to us, bless us,
    and cause his face to shine on us.
That your way may be known on earth,
    and your salvation among all nations...

Psalm 67:1-2

World English Bible (WEB)

         Telling others about something good in our lives is something we usually enjoy doing.  Perhaps it's an upcoming wedding, the impending birth of a child, or a new job.   When we are excited about our circumstances we want to share our joy with others.   It might seem strange not to want to share good news.

          Yet how often do we hold back on telling others about the best news of all.  The Good News.  The message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  

          "Let someone else do it," we may say.  "'I'm not good at talking to people about something like the Gospel," is our excuse.

           Sometimes if you aren't the one to tell the Good News to a friend, a relative, or a lost soul who needs to hear it, then that person may never hear it and will be lost.   God will guide you in your words if you will allow Him.

            Don't be ashamed of the Gospel.  Don't be afraid of offending someone with the Good News.  Someone's gotta do it.   Why can't that someone be you?

 For, “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”   How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in him whom they have not heard? How will they hear without a preacher?  And how will they preach unless they are sent? As it is written:
“How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News of peace,
    who bring glad tidings of good things!”

Romans 10:13-15
