Sharing Christ



Praise the Lord, call upon His name; Declare His deeds among the peoples,Make mention that His name is exalted.


Isaiah 12:4


Shortly after Dwight Moody (1837–99) came to faith in Christ, the evangelist resolved not to let a day pass without sharing God’s good news with at least one person. On busy days, he’d sometimes forget his resolution until late. One night, he was in bed before he remembered. As he stepped outside, he thought, No one will be out in this pouring rain. Just then he saw a man walking down the street. Moody rushed over and asked to stand under his umbrella to avoid the rain. When granted permission, he asked, “Have you any shelter in the time of storm? Could I tell you about Jesus?”


Moody embodied a readiness to share how God saves us from the consequences of our sins. He obeyed God’s instructions to the Israelites to proclaim His name and “make known among the nations what He has done” (Isaiah 12:4). Not only were God’s people called to “proclaim that His name is exalted” (v 4), but they were also to share how the Lord had “become (their) salvation” (v 2). Centuries later, our call remains the same, to tell the wonders of the Son of God, who becoming a man, dying on the cross, and rising again.


Perhaps we heard about God’s love when, as Moody did, someone left their comfort zone to talk with us about the Lord Jesus. We too, each in our own way, can tell someone about the One who saves.

Bible Reading

Isaiah 12:1-6.


Prayer

Thank You, Father, that we have a wonderful Gospel to share, because it is the Gospel of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Give me the opportunity today to tell someone about Him. In His name, I ask. Amen.
