Rediscovering Your "Go" for the Gospel of Jesus Christ




In Mark 16:15, Jesus tells us to, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Some of us have stopped going for various reasons. In order to get going we need to determine why we are not going. 


Do you have the wrong priorities?

Are you spending your time socializing and partying? 

Romans 13:13 So behave properly, as people do in the day. Don't go to wild parties or get drunk or be vulgar or indecent. Don't quarrel or be jealous.

Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.


Are you afraid?

Don't be afraid because He is with you!

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


Do you fear what others will say or how they will react?

They may give you weird looks but do what He has called you to do anyway.

Jeremiah 1:8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.


Have you lost interest in soul winning? 

This happens when we lose our fervor and first love for Jesus? He knows it happens and wants us to repent and return to Him. When we return to Him we will return to "going." 

Revelation 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

Revelation 2:5  Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent.


You don't know where to go?

Go to homeless shelters or anywhere you see the homeless. Go to hospitals, prisons, nursing homes, child abuse and neglect centers.

Matthew 25:35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

Matthew 25:36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. 

Now let's get going because "How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” Isaiah 52:7

What the Bible Says About Immigration

There is much debate and consternation about immigration today. Yet, God with great wisdom tells us  how to deal with the matter.. You will discover His instructions are fair and just for both parties.
In scripture God addressed the nation's leaders, telling them to treat immigrants/strangers fairly.  They were told not to oppress them with unjust laws but He also told immigrants to obey the nation's laws.
Let's see how God would counsel today's leaders on immigration:
Number 1: God wants immigrants to be treated fairly and not oppressed by the legal system.
Exodus 23:9  Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt
Leviticus 19:33  And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.
Leviticus 19:34  But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your…

Why You Should Stop Being So Easily Offended

Due to today's political environment many are saying we are living in the last days. A fellow said he realized we are living in the last days, when Donald Trump was elected and named his motorcade limo "The Beast."

I haven't told him yet, but it looks like the beast was made and named in 2015 when Obama was president.

So because the president rides in a limo called the beast may not be a sign we are living in the last days. But I am sure about one thing occurring in society that proves we are living in the last days, it is the rise of "offence".

In Matthew 24:10, Jesus said, "And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another."

Notice the verse said "many shall be offended."

Can we say many are "offended" these days? People become offended by many things. Leaving some of us wondering what in the world is going on.

I can't begin to name some of the minor things people get offended a…

It's Time to Think Yourself Happy!

In Acts 26:2 we see the Apostle Paul experiencing very trying circumstance but we discover by his own words he is not discouraged but actually finds himself to be quite happy. 
What's the key to such an attitude? The key is to keep your eyes fixed on the good things in your life. Unfortunately, the good things aren't always visible! Sometimes the good things in life are spiritual and can only be seen with spiritual glasses (the word of God).
Paul had his eyes fixed on Jesus and the benefits of Salvation. He realized his sins were many and he was happy to have them forgiven. Because Jesus died for the sins of the whole world, he had avoided the pit of hell and was granted access into God's kingdom. 
Like Paul we too can be happy if we keep our eyes on the benefits of salvation. This will keep us from worrying while God is working on our problems!

We can be happy our sins are forgiven.

Psalms 32:1-2 (NKJV)Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered.
