This morning, we continue our Daily Devotions looking at how we share our faith. On Sunday, we enjoyed an inspirational and challenging message by Dennis Pethers of Rooftop Ministries. He encouraged us to believe that God, by His Holy Spirit, is working in people all around us. We need to join Jesus on His mission.
Matthew 28 v 18 – 20
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go 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 I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We are often fearful about sharing our faith. This verse records the words of Jesus and it tells us that when we share our faith, He is with us. When we join someone on their mission we work alongside them. As a Police Officer in Dagenham I was asked to join the Police in Hackney in their work with Gangs. I had to transfer from Dagenham to Hackney to be with them on their mission; to work alongside them. This is true of Jesus. When we share our faith we are partnering with Jesus on His mission and we feel His presence all around us.
