You Will Be My Witnesses


The mission Jesus gave his first century disciples was found in Acts 1:8  “and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Yesterday in this blog we saw that Jerusalem represents those closest to us like friends, family neighbors and co-workers. Judea was the community in which they lived and the people were those that they had in common with each other.  
What do you do have in common with some unchurched people in our community? Running, quilting, your kids sports teams? These folks are your Judea. Now when Jesus commanded his disciples to reach out to Samaria he was aware that the Samaritans were looked at as “untouchables” to the Jewish community.
Who are the people Jesus calls us to reach out to that we don’t associate with. People with tattoos and piercing? Men and women in drug or alcohol recovery? Couples with alternative lifestyles?  Never forget,Jesus died for EVERYONE’S sins and commissions us His church to be a Christ-like witness to them all.
Tomorrow we will look at ways we can reach out “to the ends of the earth”.
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
