Ascension (2017)

We need to carry out the “Great Commission” from Jesus. How do we do it? Do we suddenly turn into religious fanatics and begin preaching to our families, our friends, and those around us? Not at All! We do it simply by making an effort to become the kind of person God the Father made us to be. We do it simply by making an effort to become the kind of person Jesus teaches us to be. We do it simply by trying to make an effort to become the kind of person the Holy Spirit inspires us to be. We witness to Jesus and teach others by our love when others need us, by our patience when others annoy us, by our forgiveness when others wrong us, and by our perseverance when we feel like quitting. Our lives speak more eloquently than our lips when it comes to witnessing and teaching. People would much rather see a sermon than listen to one.
