Think: Before Jesus sent the apostles out to bring the Good News to the people, he gathered them together and said, “Do not be afraid to stand before the crowds and speak, even though there will be many who wish you harm and will not listen. My heavenly father will watch over you and see how brave you are. ”
Challenge: The Holy Spirit came at Pentecost to share his courage and strength with the apostles. The Apostles changed from being frightened men to being brave enough to stand up before non-believers and tell them that Jesus had risen from the dead. How do we share the Gospel message today? We can tell people about Jesus, but we must also try to live in the way that Jesus taught us. We must share what we believe, and the Holy Spirit will give us the same strength and courage that he gave the disciples. This week, make a list of the ways you can share the teachings of Jesus with others….but only using actions, and not words! Once you’ve made your list, start putting them into action!
