We cannot grow spiritually if we remain isolated from those who don’t follow Christ. A relationship with God and our brothers and sisters is a good thing, but we have the “great commission” – the words of Jesus after his resurrection and before he ascended into Heaven:

 

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “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 very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 16-20 [NIV]

When you hear good news are you not itching to share it? If you see someone heading for a disaster, won’t you warn them about it? If not us, who? If not now, when?

 

Action: Take an opportunity today to be natural about your faith with someone you spend time with today.

 

Prayer: Lord, I want to tell people about my relationship with you. Help me to overcome fear and to be open to respond to the opportunities you instigate today, Amen.
