Why God-Fearers Share the Lord with Others

What motivates a Christian to share Christ with others? This 1-minute devotion explains.

In His final instructions on earth, Christ gave us a mission:

All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, 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 28:18-20

If people hear good news, it's natural that they want to share that good news with others. And we have the best good news of all. We understand God's righteous judgments and His wonderful mercy. And since we "know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others" (2 Corinthians 5:11).

When the early church lived in the fear of the Lord, they were "encouraged by the Holy Spirit" and they "increased in numbers" (Acts 9:31).

This doesn't mean their message was popular with the majority, and it doesn't mean our message will be popular with the majority. But true seekers will listen and respond. 

Do you fear the Lord enough to share the good news with others?

Most people have the wrong definition of a missionary. Do you? This 1-minute devotion explains.

(1) What is the fear of the Lord? It's a positive type of fear—a reverence, respect, and honor that God alone deserves. When we realize that we can't fully grasp “how wide and long and high and deep” God's love is, we cannot help but develop this healthy fear (Ephesians 3:16-19).
