READ: Mark 15
THINK: This is the greatest story every told. Nothing else even comes remotely close. I can’t read it without feeling emotional and completely overwhelmed that the God of the universe loved me enough to come and die. It’s outrageous. It’s amazing. It’s the greatest story ever told.
The only question is this: what will I do with it? What will you do with it? We are surrounded by broken people in a messed up world who are desperate for the hope that this story contains and are dying without it. And we are God’s plan to bring it to them. But we don’t do it. We avoid this task more often than we embrace it. And I think we all need a gut check. If you can read Mark 15 and not feel compelled to share it with those around you then do you really believe it? Do you really believe it’s true? Because if you do, how can you not share?
I was inspired tonight by the lyrics of a song by the Christian rapper Lecrae. I think it’s time for us as Christians to Go Hard…or go home. If we didn’t know Christ, would our lives look the same, can they tell we know Jesus by the way we rep his name?
PRAY: Listen to this song and pray that God would give you the courage and boldness to share his amazing gospel message with the people around you.
