Be and Go

My Musings – “The ends of the earth” may be out of the question for most of us, but each of us has their own “Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria” in our spheres of influence.  Notice that we are not called to make converts, that is the job of the Holy Spirit.  We are called to be witnesses, by our words and by our deeds, working together.

We are, on the other hand, called to make disciples, not just be disciples.  Being mentors to others in the faith that may not be as far along in becoming like Christ as we are.  The command is to go, or as some commentators state, as you go.  In other words, as we go about the life that God has given us, we are to give back by teaching others what we have already learned.

My Advice – We need not go out of our way to be witnesses or to make disciples.  If all went to the ends of the earth, what would become of our Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria if all of us did.  But as we go, wherever we go, let us be witnesses and make disciples.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
