Today is the day!!!!

According to the Scriptures we as Christians must go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature -Mark 16:15 and we must according to Matthew 28- 18Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

This is not a once in a lifetime deal and you are done because Jesus says once everyone has heard the Gospel then He will return to the earth to judge the righteous who have faithfully followed the teachings of Jesus and He will judge the unrighteous who denied the existence and the reality of Jesus Christ being the creator and sustainer of the world of whom there is no one greater. He is the righteous judge and King of all.

So if you have not spoken about the hope that lies with in you because being the Lord Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit sent from God the Father in the last month, week, or day, then please speak about it, facebook it, myspace it, sing it, read it aloud, and live it out for the glory of King Jesus!! Today I was listening to Allan Houston speak to Liberty University a few years ago and he said that we might be the only Bible that people see. So please let your words and your actions reflect Jesus Christ and if you do have a rough time in times of hardship, persecution, and trouble, then call upon the Lord for strength, and be there for someone else who needs, love, compassion, a help up, a friendly smile, a kind word of encouragement spoken softly so that it turns away wrath, and to plant a seed in their life so that when they are dying or are in need they will never be able to say that you were not there for them to encourage them and give them the truth of the Gospel in a loving way that Jesus demands of us to do.

So why must we serve King Jesus? Well simply put, look at His life. He was born humbly in a manger which is a feeding trough for the animals. He was teaching the Pharisees and other religious teachers of the day. So when you say that you are to young or do not know enough please look preach the Word of God anyways because the Holy Spirit will give you the words to say. Jesus taught in parables or everyday speech which was common to the people, so we do not have to use big complicated words although it is nice to use complex Christian terms we do not have to do so as long as the Gospel is being taught in a Biblical manner. Jesus was spit upon, mocked, laughed at, whipped 39 times, had to carry His own cross to Calvary where He was crucified, bled and died for our sins to bring life that is everlasting to those who accept Him as Savior and trust only in Him.

So if we are ever in doubt of the love that Jesus showed us, please look to the cross on which Christ sacrificed Himself for our iniquities bearing the shame, pain, and wrath of God Almighty that we deserve so we can live free from our sins.

Please seek Jesus Christ and His power, love, grace, and joy so that you can shine like the stars for Him.

Your brother in the King Jesus Christ,
Mark Cannon
