Go into all the world and preach the gospel
Mark 16: 15-20
(15) He said to them "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. (16) Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. (17)And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues, (18) they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people and they will get well."
(19) After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was taken up into heaven and he sat at the right hand of God. (20) Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed His word by the signs that accompanied it.
Observation, in my own words:
Jesus came to His disciples and was like "These are My words, these parables I say to you have power in them. Take these words, these parables and go share them with all living creation. Humans most importantly, but then continue to share with your pets, the animals out here in nature.
Those of us who truly believe in these parables, these word of God will be saved. Meaning you will be protected in this life. The protection Jesus speak of will not keep us from trouble will have the spirit of God watching over and yes protecting us. The savings part means we have a place in heaven.
Those of us not saved will be condemned & What does condemned mean? Condemned means to be sentenced to a particular punishment, especially death. (in the spiritual aspect I'm not speak to much on this.) And I'm not thinking this is a normal death or a normal punishment either. But lets hope for all of us reading this we are saved or on the verge of getting saved.
For those of us that are saved and are going out into the world and spreading the gospel we are going be blessed, not with a super power but with a special life. The way we live will show Gods power at work. Go live this life and find out for yourself what being saved and living up to how God told us to live is like. God is not asking us He is telling!
Jesus then leaves His disciples and goes sits at the right hand of God. A quick recap Jesus tells us! Spread His word, the gospel. Doing this you will be saved you will walk with not super powers but with a special life, live it and find out for yourself. Go that way I'm out (Jesus has His own work to do.)
Now the disciples of Jesus go out into the world, they spread gospel, Though the works that they do they witness that Jesus is doing His part by the signs that accompany and they don't stop they keep moving.
Application to my Life:
God has told me what to do. God has told all of us who seek Him what to do. We are told to go out into this world and spread His word, the gospel. We will have and interesting life doing this. This is scary and exciting all wrapped in one. The only way to start is to just start. Open your bible, understand what God is telling you then share it. Send a message, start a blog, talk to the people around you! When you start God is going to show that He is with you and is working in your life. He is helping you along the way.
The key aspect to this life is staying consistent. We can not do this for a day or two... Well we can but that is not how we should be doing this. Spreading the word of God is a life style that I my self am guilty of not doing daily.
With your help and with the help of the people I associate my self with the spreading the gospel will become second nature.
Please help me do this so I can help others. Amen
Prayer: My prayer today is for those of us who have started this journey of sharing the gospel and are at the point of realizing that the changes it makes could not have been done without the help of Jesus. I pray that they get some recognition, a simple thank you. The people who spread the gospel are doing Gods work and that they do understand that they are doing a good job are not just spinning their wheels. In the name of Jesus Amen.
