Picture from facebook.
When I was going through the news feeds on my Facebook account. I came across this picture you seeing. Looking at it very closely, deep down it evoked one of my childhood memories. This memory in particular was about the religious arguments we held always in dormitories to find out which religion was better than the other one. I tell you what, always at the end of these pointless arguments they were fights we harvested. And then it could take us some good time to be friends again. It wasn’t always a good experience. That, I can tell you. Am pretty sure you know what I’m talking about here for those who participate or saw people doing so.
Unfortunately, such pointless debates still do happen to date. If it were with kids, well that’s okay because their still naïve. But grown up people that’s ridiculous. Especially finding those ones who went to bible schools indulging in such.
Matthew 28:19-20 says “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
The above scripture is called the Great Commission. It’s every Christian’s purpose to do in his or her life. It’s not only to the pastors, fathers or reverends but to everyone who follows Jesus Christ. Let me not waste time on this and jump to what I’ve to say.
The scripture is telling us to make disciples of all nations. Agree with me on this, you can’t make a disciple if he or she next to you is an enemy. But it’s possible to make a disciple if he or she next to you is your friend. So if such debates result into hate, when will a soul to be won for Christ be won. Of course there’s no chance. It’s a friend who will give you time to speak to him or her about your faith but not an enemy.
I conclude saying, let’s win souls for Christ by telling the messes the goodness about our faith. Living a life imitating the humbleness, kindness and awesomeness of our Lord Jesus Christ and also showing unconditional love to everyone. If only and only we do this, we will illuminate and the world will see the light.
