Our Lord has called us to be His body, and it is through the Church — the people of God — that His message of grace and salvation is to be spread throughout the world. Each believer as well as each local church is responsible for evangelizing their sphere of influence.
We have been given the great honor and responsibility of being ambassadors for Christ, but if we do not take up this task, the local Church will not survive.
We must be willing to take risks and go out into the world, proclaiming the good news of the gospel. We must be willing to share our faith with others and invite them to Christ.
May we not be passive observers or idle spectators, but rather, may we be willing to take action and do the work that the Lord has called us to do. May we be faithful in making disciples of all nations, and let us remember that the Church must send or the church will end.
Heavenly Father, thank you for calling us to be part of Your Church. Help us to be faithful in spreading Your message of grace and salvation to others. Give us the courage to stand against the spirit of the age and to call people out of their sin. In Jesus Christ’s most powerful name, Amen
