John 12:32-33 32 And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”33 This He said, signifying by what death He would die.
- We are equipped to make disciples
- There is a very strong message to unbelievers:
- Jesus died for us, not knowing most of the people he died for
- Who else would be able to do that?
- Dying on the cross is very spectacular, and has all ingredients to draw people to God
What is necessary to make disciples?
- The message of Jesus dying for us can make people free, gives them peace, make them happy. Therefore it should be easy to convince people.
- However it is not. There are 3 conditions you must meet
- Share it if God was good to you
- Jesus need to be your passion
- If Jesus is your passion people will see it in you
- If Jesus in only your hidden passion (you are a bit ashamed of), people cannot see it.
- You must be willing
- You need to take effort
- Do not try to find time for God, but make time for God
- Do not be upset, if people have fun, and you need to be in Church. God will pay back hundredfold (Matthew 19:29)
What happens if you have passion for Christ and if you take the effort?
- You will walk in Gods presence !
- God will bring you peace and joy to You
- God will bring peace and joy to other people you interact with, because you carry Gods presence
- If people look for God, they will find it through You.
Our prayer for you
- Let God fill you with his presence !
- Let God give you passion for him !
- Let people see through you the Glory of God
