The Bridge

Share, Good News, Shout it out, BRIDGE, believer,
In essence, the believer is the bridge between the unbeliever and Jesus

John the Baptist was described as a witness, a bridge, born to proclaim all the wonders of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who was to take away the sins of the world. John’s primary purpose was to connect people with the Savior of their souls.

Be a Witness, Be a Light

If we do not proclaim the Gospel, our Lord bled and died for nothing. How desperately He needs us, and how much He must trust us to allocate this duty into our keeping!

Now, just as John was called to be a witness, so is every believer. Our words and actions form the link between the lost and Christ. If we choose not to shine for Him, the unbeliever is left with no hope of redemption – see Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Be a “John the Baptist”

Light, shine
Let your light shine

This is an extraordinary concept. Although Jesus died and rose again, His death and His resurrection can have no impact on anyone should this knowledge not be communicated.

We are all John the Baptists, so to speak, being commanded to go forth and be the bridge between this world and our awe-inspiring Savior

Matthew 28:19–20 – 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, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

This is both a tremendous responsibility and a wonderful privilege. The Great Commission is a call to action. It is a call to do something, not to sit passively by while multitudes live and die without Christ.

The Great Commission

The Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 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, 20 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

As it was John’s responsibility to prepare for the first coming of Christ, so it is our responsibility to prepare for the second.

How are we proclaim Jesus second coming? By proclaiming the glorious good news of redemption!

Facing Fear

1 Be merciful to me, my God,    for my enemies are in hot pursuit;    all day long they press their attack.2 My adversaries pursue me all day long;    in their pride many are attacking me. 3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.4     In God, whose word I praise—in God I trust and am not afraid.    What can mere mortals do to… Continue reading Facing Fear
