Last night I was listening to these songs on this video. ( If you’re reading this in the emailed newletter you’ll need to click through to my blog to see the video.) I asked my 6 year old if he understood what the song was talking about and I went on to explain that God tells us to go out and tell people about Jesus. God’s plan to reach the world is for us, as his followers, to go and tell them the Good News about how to receive God’s forgiveness so they can go to heaven and be with Him for ever. 

Here Am I Send Me – Mercy Me

Brendan’s response was- lets go. And he meant, like now. He asked if he could go to the neighbor’s and I could watch him from the door (he’s not allowed to just roam the neighborhood). Of course I said no to that- but I have reached out to neighbors in the past.  Sometimes we hand out gospel tracts at the store or to people we run into. I told Brendan he could take some to the theatre (we were going to see Toy Story 3 last night- we rarely go to the movies).  He was concerned that I only gave him 4 of the “million dollar” tracts to hand out and we talked about who he could give them to…the ticket seller, the popcorn person…who else? He had given out all 4 tracts before we left the theatre – 2 hours after we arrived.

Like the lyrics in this Mercy Me song, I want to go and share- unashamed.

To be honest, I struggle to hand out tracts to strangers. Too concerned about what they’ll think of me. I don’t have a problem talking to someone about Jesus once the ice is cracked. But, boy, I’m not too crazy about being the one to “crack” the ice. Sometimes I lament: why don’t people just come up and ask me about Jesus if they really want to know? { Ha! The easy way out. }

No. Most don’t know I have the answer. Those who know I do- probably don’t want to hear it because they don’t want to submit to God. Some think as long as you sincerely believe in God (mental belief) or sincerely believe in “something”, you’re okay. But thats not what the bible says.

“Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the STONE WHICH WAS SET AT NOUGHT OF YOU BUILDERS, WHICH IS BECOME THE HEAD OF THE CORNER. Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” Acts 4:10-12

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6

Yes, Oprah (see clips here), Jesus is the only way to God- he said so Himself!
