Wherever You Are posted by John Sorensen on Jul 08, 2019

What did Jesus command believers to do in Acts chapter 1? I can tell you for certain that He didn’t say, ‘hey, tell people about Me if you feel like it, but just going to church on Sundays will work, too.’

No, Jesus isn’t concerned with keeping us comfortable or letting us coast through our life until we get to Heaven. What Jesus is concerned about is that we have a relationship with Him and lead others to Him until we are called home to Heaven.

Right before Jesus went back to Heaven to be with the Father, He said these words, “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

The last thing He said on earth was that we would receive the power of the Holy Spirit and that we will be His witnesses!

Now that we understand what we’re supposed to do – no Christian coasting here – we need to know where to do it. Well, the answer is found in that same verse – Acts 1 verse 8. Judea…Samaria…and to the ends of the earth.

Jesus told us to be His witnesses everywhere! If we’re going to share the Gospel everywhere we go, that means we need to be prepared to witness anytime, as well.

Even on vacation. My challenge to you is to be intentional to share the Gospel, and to equip other believers to witness, so that you’re always aware of the lost and hurting around you. Don’t let summer vacation become a trap that keeps you from sharing the Gospel, rather be more intentional than you’ve ever been, so that everyone, everywhere can hear about God’s great love!

This is our focus this week at Evangelism Explosion through our social media channels and our daily broadcast. Visit ShareLife.Today for resources to help you share the Gospel wherever you go!

May God richly bless you this week as you keep your eyes open for opportunities!
