I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"TEACHING ABOUT JESUS AND THE BIBLE" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
TEACHING ABOUT JESUS AND THE BIBLE
I TALK A LOT ABOUT STUDYING GOD'S WORD AND GETTING PEOPLE BORN AGAIN AND GETTING PEOPLE BORN AGAIN IS FIRST AND FOREMOST OF WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING BUT WE CAN'T STOP THERE. YOU MIGHT ASK WHAT IS THERE AFTER BEING BORN AGAIN. NATURALLY YOU SHOULD START LIVING A GOOD CHRISTIAN LIFE BUT THAT STILL IS NOT ALL.
THE FOUR GOSPELS REFER TO JESUS TEACHING 43 TIMES, PREACHING 19 TIMES AND DOING THEM BOTH IN THE SAME VERSES 6 TIMES. TEACHING SOMEONE ABOUT JESUS SO THEY CAN GO OUT AND TEACH SOMEONE ELSE IS WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING. JESUS WAS NOT JUST MAKING CONVERTS, HE WAS MAKING DISCIPLES.
IT IS GOOD THAT WE ARE BORN AGAIN BUT WE STILL HAVE TO BE DISCIPLES AND TEACH OTHERS. NOW SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO DO BOTH, TEACH AND PREACH. SOME PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT JESUS. OH, THEY MAY HAVE HEARD THAT HE IS THE SON OF GOD BUT DO THEY REALLY KNOW WHO HE IS? LISTEN TO THEM AND SEE WHAT THEY ACTUALLY KNOW ABOUT HIM. ALSO SEE WHAT THEY BELIEVE ABOUT THE BIBLE. YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED.
I WAS SURPRISED ONE NIGHT WHEN I WAS IN OUR WEEKLY BIBLE STUDY CLASS. THERE SAW THIS YOUNG LADY WHO DIDN'T HAVE HER BIBLE WITH HER SO I WAS GOING TO SHARE. SHE SAID SHE HAD JUST FORGOTTEN TO BRING HERS. I TOLD HER WE COULD SHARE AND SHE ASK ME IF MINE WAS THE ONE KING JAMES WROTE BECAUSE THAT WAS WHAT SHE ALWAYS USED. SHE WAS REALLY SERIOUS. THIS WAS A LADY THAT HAD BEEN IN OUR BIBLE STUDY CLASS FOR WEEKS. I WONDERED AT THAT POINT IF WE WERE DOING ANYONE ANY GOOD. I CHANGED THE FORMAT AFTER THAT BUT THAT IS A DIFFERENT STORY.
SO, YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED WHAT PEOPLE DO AND DO NOT KNOW ABOUT THE BIBLE OR EVEN JESUS. ROMANS 14:14 SAYS " How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?" WE MUST MAKE SURE THEY REALLY KNOW WHO HE IS, GET THEM BORN AGAIN AND TEACH THEM SO THEY CAN GO OUT AND BE DISCIPLES AS JESUS DEMANDED ALL OF US TO DO. MARK 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. TELL SOMEONE ABOUT JESUS TODAY. I NOW JESUS WILL BE PLEASED.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
