What kind of Christian are you? Are you a "secret agent" Christian or are you bold Believer?
Do you know who you are in Jesus Christ? Jesus has transferred his authority to you! Jesus proclaimed all authority in Heaven and Earth has been transferred to Him, and He transfers it to you.
(18) And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
(19) 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,
(20) teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
What does this mean? It means the whole universe is under His control, it means all life is under his orders, Jesus is master of the Universe! He has transferred that power and authority to His people. He has given us orders under His authority. What orders do you and I have?
1. To Go! (Don't sit and think about it, just do it.. Go!)
2. To make disciples of all the nations (The whole world is open to you, this means people of different faith, colors and looks, they are waiting for your message)
3. Baptizing them in the NAME of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (It means not only to tell but teach, help people (the nations) take the complete step faith...all the way to baptism.
4. Teaching them (Jesus has commanded us to give the world His "Doctrine" Doctrine means teaching in Latin., We are to spend time educating the world about Jesus Christ, don't be shy about explaining the Bible)
In Jesus you have authority over the nations, we should not be shy about using our authority because someone might be offended. Jesus took back what Adam lost at "the Fall" (Gen. 3:15), He has transferred His victory at the Cross to His people. Satan does not want you to tell the nations they can be freed from their captivity, so Satan tries to intimidate the believers into secret agent status. We are afraid of offending people, the very people who need the message of salvation are being kept from it because of fear of Christians.
We have no reason to fear, Jesus is master of the Universe, both the physical and spiritual. Not a hair from your head can fall without His knowledge, take a step today and be BOLD in your faith.How can you be bold today? Here are couple of suggestions:
1. Take and read your Bible in public.
2. Wear something that proclaims your faith, T-shirt, Button, etc.,
3. Invite someone to church.
4. Tell someone you will pray for them.
5. Talk about your faith, ask people what they believe.
This might seem hard at first, always remember your authority, the one who owns the Universe has given your the RIGHT to obey His Word.
