‘We preach Christ crucified.’

1 Corinthians 1:23 NIV

We’re all called to share our faith with others. Some of us might do that by working in Christian ministry, others might talk to people where they live, others might go on a mission trip, and others might reach those closest to them. But however we evangelise, and whoever we’re talking to, we need to remember to share the whole gospel. It can be tempting to focus on the ‘nice’ parts of Christianity. We like to tell people that God loves them and that they’re His children. This is definitely true. The Bible says: ‘See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!’ (1 John 3:1 NIV). But we can’t stop there. We need to ‘preach Christ crucified’. Explaining Jesus’ death and resurrection can be challenging; we may not even fully understand it ourselves, let alone explain it in an accessible way to those who don’t yet know God. But the Holy Spirit can help us have the words to say. Jesus said: ‘The Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say’ (Luke 12:12 NIV). If we don’t tell people about what Jesus has done for them, they won’t understand the grace and mercy of God. They won’t know that they’re saved, forgiven, and redeemed, without having to do anything other than believe. They won’t be grateful to God for the sacrifice that was made. People may not believe what we’re telling them, and they may reject us for what we’re saying. But God wants us to tell people the truth about who He is, who they are, and what has been done for them. So let’s go and tell them today.  What Now? Try and tell someone about Jesus this Easter. Make sure you tell them about the importance and necessity of the cross, as well as sharing how much God loves them.
