On Our Walk

"'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 end of the age.'"  -Matthew 28:18-20
Are we doing our part in the Great Commission?  I know I am not.  It's more than sharing inspirational pictures or scripture on Facebook, it's about how you live your life.  What specific talents has God given you to help you live out the Great Commission?  This subject is hard for me to write about because I know, in my thirty-seven years, I have not been actively trying to spread the gospel.  I've ignored those moments He gives you, those perfect opportunities that act as a stepping stone to share your faith.  You know the ones, when an acquaintance gets a little more personal and shares trouble they are having.  Do you tell them how God has gotten you through the hard times?  Do they know by your lifestyle that you answer to a higher calling?

I have had the Titus 2 woman on my mind a lot lately.
"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; that they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God not be blasphemed."  -Titus 2:3-5
I have had faith in Jesus Christ my whole life, have I reached a point in my life yet that I can be a model to younger Christian women?   We know in our hearts how to live our lives in a way that pleases God, but do we listen?  Yet God gives us chance after chance, day after day to start fresh!
"It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning: great is they faithfulness."  -Lamentations 3:22-23
We can start right now, invite God on our walk today!


  1. I want to encourage you with this.
    For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
    All the power is in the word of God. It's up to us to share God's word with others. I know it can be difficult at times, but remembering that God's word never goes out un-returned and that it's not up to us but a work of the Holy Spirit really helps to take the pressure off of us. God doesn't want ability to be eloquent or have an amazing testimony, but to be He wants our availability. Sharing the Gospel is the one command where God tells all of us to be obedient even if we are not gifted in that area. Total reliance on the Holy Spirit is what He accomplishes that way. No one comes to the Father unless He draws them near. Praying for you ability to step out in faith! <3

  2. This is such a welcome reminder for me today. I have been feeling disconnected lately and this helps. I always feel better when I am sharing how awesome God is in my life. I need to focus on what he's done in my life to make it awesome and share that with others.


Love it and leave it!
