So Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” John 20:21 NASB
As you read the account of the Resurrection in John, something happens later that evening that most miss.
Later that evening, after Jesus appeared to Mary, He appeared to His disciples who were behind closed doors.
He tells them, “as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.”
Jesus didn’t waste any time, the Gospel needed to get out!
The Gospel of John still records some hesitation and time between the disciples getting out and becoming active in ministry. But they did!
They went out in the power of the Holy Spirit and turned the world upside down for Jesus!
This charge wasn’t only to the 12 disciples. This charge is also for us today. Do we “go into the world?” Each Believer has this responsibility in the context of the life the Lord has given them.
How have you shared the Gospel? How can you start? This should be a prayer and desire for every Believer.
He sent you. Will you go?
Father, thank You for the awesome privilege of sharing the Good News with others. Thank You that I can impact eternity for You.
