April 17

After the resurrection, Jesus appeared to over five hundred men at one time, teaching them and giving them a new command. The resurrection was fantastic, but it was His appearance to so many people that really set in stone the truth about who He is. Knowing all that you know about Jesus, especially that He is God, what is stopping you from carrying out His commands? He won't leave you, and you can count on Him to help you when you're doing what He's told you to do. This particular command that I'm talking about is what we call The Great Commission! In it He tells us to GO! Go tell the world the gospel, the truth of who He is! We have so many excuses for not sharing Jesus with others, but the main excuse is fear. Do you know how many times God's Word tells us to have no fear or to not be afraid? Over 365 times! Let me tell you this though, you should fear God if you don't obey His commands!

And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." Matthew 28:18-20
