396. Evangelize with Jesus
Jesus calls for humility
“What profit would there be for one to gain the whole world and forfeit his life? Or what can one give in exchange for his life?” Matthew, chapter 16, verse 26
This message is very important if we want to work (evangelize) with Jesus. During his visit, he showed us how difficult it is to move into a world where many people stay away from God. It’s in this world that we’re sent, because God Loves people, always.
Jesus would like to gather all the sheep:
“How many times I yearned to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her young under her wings, but you were unwilling!” Matthew, chapter 23, verse 37
That’s what Jesus wants us to understand. It is he who saves, it is he who converts. Jesus wants us in his mission, but he doesn’t want us to be living the mission alone. He’s the one who guides and leads his people, his family, to eternal life.
