Why should I share the Gospel?

Over the past few days I have had the chance to sit under the training of Ying Kai.

Ying is a modern day Paul. In the most recent survey of the Ying Kais’ ministry, more than 1.7 million people have come to faith and been baptized. Every month trained workers start two thousand house churches and small groups in villages, urban high-rise apartments and factories. Over 140,000 churches have been started in what is currently the world’s fastest growing church planting movement.

This morning, God used Ying to motivate me to use my life to tell everyone I can about Jesus.  

Answering the call to share the Gospel –  1 Corinthians 9:16 For if I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting. For necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!

  1. Calling from Above (Heaven) –  Mark 16:15–16 And he (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
  2. Calling from Below (Hell) –  Luke 16:27–28 And he (a rich man in hell) said, “Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father’s house— for I have five brothers—so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.”
  3. Calling from Inside (Heart)-  Romans 9:1–3   I am speaking the truth in Christ—I am not lying; my conscience bears me witness in the Holy Spirit— that I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my kinsmen according to the flesh.
  4. Calling from Outside (Humanity) –  Acts 16:9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.”

All creation is crying out for the redemption that God has given us through Jesus. We have the privilege, responsibility and power (Holy Spirit) to answer the call and to share The Good News.

How can you answer the call today?
