God Commands You To Tell Others About Jesus Christ (Part 1)
"And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)
Imagine that you are playing outside in your yard when you start to smell smoke. You turn, and see a fire in your neighbor's back kitchen. What do you do? Do you carry on playing like nothing is wrong? No; you run over to your neighbor's house and start yelling, "Fire! Fire!"
Why would you do such a thing? Why would you warn your neighbor about the fire in his house? You do so because you know something he does not: that his house is on fire, and thus, you have the responsibility of warning him.
The Bible says that there is a fire that is never-ending. It is unlike any fire you have ever seen. Your neighbors and friends may not know about this fire because they do not see it; but it is real, and they are in danger of being caught in this fire forever. Yes, forever! This fire is the fire of hell, and it is where any person who does not believe in Jesus Christ will spend eternity. But there is Good News! Any person who trusts Jesus Christ as his personal Savior will not only be able to escape that fire of hell, but will also spend eternity with God in heaven!
In Mark 16:15, Christ commands His disciples to tell the world this Good News. But, this command is not only for the disciples in Jesus' time. If you are a one of Jesus' followers if you have acknowledged that Jesus is Lord and believed that God has raised Him from the dead then this command to tell the Good News is for you. You must go and tell others about the Good News of Jesus Christ! Just as you have the responsibility of warning your neighbor that his house is on fire, so you have the responsibility of telling him that Jesus Christ can save him.
God commands His people to tell others about Jesus Christ.
