Why Should We Love Sharing the Gospel?
Christians love to share the gospel because it is through the knowledge of Jesus Christ and what he has done for us that we want other people to hear and experience the truth as well. But some Christians can be quite scared to share the gospel because they are afraid of being rejected and being disappointed. You may be on your Amsterdam city trip and then the Lord impresses that you share the gospel to someone on the elevator. You may be in the Van Gogh Museum and then you intentionally talk to the stranger next to you to share the gospel. Why should we develop a love for sharing the gospel?
Because the gospel will save people
Jesus said that there is only one way to salvation. And it is only through faith in Him that you and I are saved. The Scripture says that the wages of sin is death but we are saved by grace through faith which we receive as a gift of God. Because we want other people to be saved and to experience the love of God, we want to share the gospel with all people. It is our love of God that we can love other people. If we experience the overflowing love of God, we want others to experience it as well.
Because we want to follow the command of Jesus
It is said in the Scripture that we should go and make disciple of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you, and I will be with you until the end of the age. By sharing the gospel, you are responding in obedience to Jesus Christ. You are not making your disciple but you are turning them into disciples of Jesus Christ.
If you ever found out the best news that will change your life forever, wouldn’t you want to share it with other people? This is what the gospel is all about. This is a life-changing event for Christians. If people will realize how the love of God works in us, they will see the beauty of his love in their own lives. It will lead them to humility, repentance, and worship.
