The Gospel is a powerful message; That God, the Creator of the Universe, loves us enough that He provided a way for us to live in a relationship with Him; by covering our sins through Christ's work on the cross... so many times we stop there, we think; God paid for all my sins; so I'm good to go do what I want now. We like to be a sponge of the Gospel, focused on us and trying to get something. But God didn't save us so that we would just live then to make ourselves comfortable and relax here and now and become focused on "the good life"
There are too many people who are going to die without knowing Christ for us to sit back and live THE GOOD LIFE!
How many times do we make excuses for this sponge behavior, not sharing because of what people will think, because it takes our precious time, because it's inconvenient.
How much do you have to hate someone to NOT share the Truth that will save their life?!
What if a proper response to the Gospel is that of an Explosion. An explosion that is focused not on trying to get ourselves to a high place, (a life still centered on us) but rather a life focused on God, and trying to give Him Glory (Does He not deserve it?!) A sponge can have a reaction and go unnoticed, an explosion is hard to ignore.
Who do you love?
When people come in contact with you, do they leave that moment thinking of Christ, or have you wasted your time and theirs? Are you so focused on using your time (or money, or skills) to make yourself look good, or do you care about people enough to share your friendship;
Matthew 28:16-20 "Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
