How Members of Christian Churches in Boise Can Help People Know and Follow Jesus
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded to you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
~ Matthew 28:19
As Christians, we have a duty to help others find and follow the teachings of God and Jesus our Lord. Doing so, however, can be difficult, particularly in today's society where so many are quick to turn their backs to the Gospel. Here are a few ways that members of Christian Churches near me can help share Jesus with their neighbors.
We have to realize and be committed to the fact that there is only one name in heaven and earth by which people are saved. It’s through the person and work of Christ that eternal life is found. And so, we have to commit to being intentional in helping people to find and follow Him. In being intentionally committed to the eternal life found in the Word of God and Jesus Himself, and in helping other people find the same, we will be living on mission.
Life is built around relationships. So is our faith. Loving God and loving others are the two greatest commandments and we show express that through developing meaningful relationships with both Christ and with the people in the world around us. What better way to show someone how Jesus has impacted your life that to be an authentic friend to someone who needs to see that impact and, eventually, experience it themselves.
While this is a logical outflow of the first two, it is also worthy of being stated and prioritized in the hectic pace of life that most of us live in today’s society. It’s so easy to fall into the rhythm of going to local Christians Churches on Sunday for a couple of hours, then living the remaining 166 hours of our week unavailable to the Great Commission because we’ve filled our lives with other worldly pursuits. We have to be committed to breaking that pattern if we are to truly be available for Jesus to work through us in the world.
