Compelling people to Christ

Matt. 28:19 "Go therefore, and make disciples amog all the nations."
Is Jesus saying "if you don't mind, can you...?" No, it's a command! Jesus commands us to share the gospel! I do not do this often enough:(

Now, I think this also means that for all you parents, your ministry is your family!!! And as a brother to eight siblings, it's my ministry!!! I need to work on bringing up the subject of the gospel more in our families, and out.

I loved what my pastor said about when the Jews took Christ out of their temple= that it was signifing that just as Jesus was taken out, He was put into the world, for everybody! So we should be just like that. The gospel isn't for just inside the church, it's for the whole world! We have amazing news, and we need to share it!

Liuke 14:23 "And the Lord said to His servant, go out into the highways and compel them to come." In this story, who are we? The servant...right...yes... your very smart. And what is our job? "to compel people to come." To persuade them to come. I like to think... that we are salesmen for Christ, but instead of trying to sell people junk, we try to sell them the best thing in the world!
But can we realing sell them it? No. Only the Holy Spirit can work in the heart of somebody. But the Holy Spirit sometimes works in us.

All for the glory of God,

Hey, that is a great thought ... to compel men to come to Christ. I suppose the "highways" means anywhere we come into contact with others. Hopefully, I will be more faithful in that regard.
