Hey! My name is Ethan Wallis and I’m from Nambour Christian College, Sunshine Coast.
Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus replied, “Love the lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”
”He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
Have you ever walked past someone who seems to be so happy and joyful? Have you ever meet someone that is so passionate in everything they do, that they don’t care if they stuff up? Imagine if we could be so bold and passionate in our faith that people would look at us and wonder why we are like this. No matter the environment, having a strong faith and acting in a way that honours God will inspire other people people, giving you the opportunity to tell them about how Jesus has transformed you. This therefore spreading the good news of Jesus. “Go into all the world.” How are we supposed to make a stand for Jesus and see change in our schools or work places if we only keep our faith to ourselves? As followers of Christ it is so important to have a public faith and to be able to stand up to what you believe and here are some key reasons why;
When you truly know God, you can’t help but tell others of his goodness.
A move of God never happens by people standing idle. It takes someone to step out in faith when God will use them.
Actions will speak much louder then our words.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father thank you for everything you are doing in my life, please help me to become more passionate to read your word and deepen my relationship with you. Please help me to act in a way that honours you and brings glory to your kingdom. Lord let you will be done, please use me as a vessel for your kingdom. In your name we pray. Amen.
