“Preach the Gospel”

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

— Mark 16:15

When we first come to the Savior, we come with empty hands, empty of anything that could commend us to His kingdom. With empty hands we embrace His Cross and trust in His redeeming work to save us. But when we meet Christ in Heaven, we hope our hands will be full to overflowing with the souls we’ve led into His everlasting kingdom.

If you were to meet Christ in Heaven today, what would you hold in your hands to offer Him?

Christ has commanded us to give witness of Him to the world. He said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Our world is lost and dying, and we Christians have within our hands the only cure: the good news that Jesus Christ has saved us. We need to share that good news freely to bring hope and healing into the world.

As we share Christ with others, we’ll gain a real sense of significance and purpose for our lives. And as we walk in faith, giving away the abundant resource of God’s grace, we gain even more spiritual growth in return.

Not only is witnessing to people a command from Jesus Christ, it’s a tremendous privilege. Do you know someone who needs to hear the Good News today?

“Must I go, and empty handed, thus my dear Redeemer meet?
… Not one soul with which to greet Him: Must I empty handed go?”
