"'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 3:22-23We can start right now, invite God on our walk today!
