“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.”
Matthew 28:19-20 NLT
As amazing as it sounds, we don’t necessarily have to travel far to spread the Good News of Jesus to “all nations.” We can start with the people we see every day. Every time we talk to someone about Jesus, it’s like a pebble being dropped into a pond. It causes only a tiny splash, but it creates a ripple that can travel to the ends of the pond.
Like that pebble, one conversation about Jesus may not seem like a big deal. But that single conversation could turn out to be the start of something far-reaching, especially with the Holy Spirit working behind the scenes.
The Holy Spirit has the power to help us understand and communicate God’s Word in meaningful ways, put us in the right place at the right time with the right words in our mouths, and open people’s eyes and hearts to our message.
Folks, if we step out and take risks by sharing our faith, the Holy Spirit will make sure it isn’t done in vain. That doesn’t mean every person we talk to will become a believer. But it does mean that our efforts will never be wasted. Our words may spread seeds that are carried to all nations.
