Go and Tell

Posted: February 3, 2014 in Uncategorized

Mark your calendars! The first “Go and Tell” of the semester is this Friday, February 7th. For those of you who do not know what “Go and Tell” is, it’s an evangelism event put on by Shandon College Ministry where we go out in pairs to share the gospel with people on USC’s campus. Just to give you all an idea of what will actually happen, we will all meet at 631 Harden at 3:30 on Friday afternoon where we will go over some simple techniques on how to share the gospel and then pray. We will then pair up and head to campus to evangelize, trying to meet back at 631 around 5:00 to share our experiences with one another.

It’s a great opportunity to come together with other believers for the unified purpose of sharing the gospel in this unique, temporary mission field that God has placed us in.  We are surrounded every day by thousands of lost college students that are searching for answers, and trying to fill the void in their life with worldly things that leave them empty.  We have the answer that many of them are searching for; all they need is for us to share it with them. It can be terrifying to go out and share the gospel, but doing it alongside someone else many times gives you the courage you need. My prayer is that as we team up to go share the gospel that we will gain the courage and passion to share the gospel with our fellow peers on a daily basis.

I encourage you all to come out on Friday. For those of you, who find yourselves to be apathetic, pray for God to change your heart to have a desire to reach the lost. If you are terrified, pray for the boldness you need to share the gospel with others. Let’s put aside any fear or inhibition and take a step of faith to see what God may do through us in the lives of the lost.

As we approach this Friday, let’s pray for one another for boldness and passion, and for the lost to have their eyes opened to the truth. Also, prepare yourself spiritually by being washed and renewed in the gospel this week, so that you will be ready to preach the news of Christ to the lost and dying world. This can look a million different ways, including listing to a gospel centered sermon, or reading through scripture, like Romans 1-8, or possibly listening to a song that stirs up your affections for God. Whatever it may be, let’s rest in the Lord and what He’s done for us this week, and I hope to see you all on Friday!
