Qualified To Share
Not one gift is better than the other, but all are made to work together for the good of the Lord.
Every single one of us has been gifted with something special. Some of us are great communicators, encouragers, leaders or servants. When God created us, he gave everyone a different gift and ability so that we may use those to further God’s Kingdom. Not one gift is better than the other, but all are made to work together for the good of the Lord.
Though God has gifted us all differently, He has given every single one of His followers the same command: “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.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
Unfortunately, we don’t always obey this command. As Mark Christian reminded us on Sunday, “We disqualify ourselves from sharing the Gospel because we view ourselves as not good enough.” Let this be an encouragement to you that you are good enough! You are qualified to share the Gospel. God has gifted each of us in unique ways for this exact purpose — to make His name known!
Use the reflection questions below to help kickstart a plan for you to share the Gospel.
Reflect and journal on these questions:
What are some personal gifts that I could use to evangelize and further God’s Kingdom?
Who is someone I can share Christ with this week?
How will I follow up with this person?
