If you had the opportunity to introduce your favorite President of the United States to anyone you chose, then you would feel that you were important, relevant and had a huge opportunity in front of you. Every Christian, however, is extremely important, more that relevant to his/her peers and has a bigger opportunity than even introducing the President to your buddies! Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with a lost sinner is the greatest honor one could ever have!
The excitement that comes with sharing the Gospel is something that lots of people miss out on. Many times it is just apathy and lack of priorities that hinders folks from experiencing the joy that comes with sharing God’s Word. Don’t get me wrong, witnessing to people is hard and often discouraging; depending on how you look at things. In spite of the fear factor and intimidation you can face, being able to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with an individual is truly exhilarating!
Christian mothers play an important role in world evangelism. Do not let Satan and liberal theologians fool you into thinking that sports and education play second fiddle to a good Christian upbringing and practical Christian instruction in the home. Many mothers have sold themselves out and have missed their greatest opportunity to impact the world by not sharing the Gospel with their children.
Yes, it is true that just because you grow up in a so-called “Christian Home” does not mean that you will be saved and have a home in Heaven when you die. However true this statement might be does not give anyone the excuse to not pray and care for the souls of those who are without Christ. Consider what Charles Spurgeon said, “If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”
On this Mother’s Day, will you rededicate yourself to sharing the Gospel with your lost family, friends, and neighbors? Will you not let the sun go down without praying for their souls to be saved?
