Sent to tell

...by proving what I can do. I will send the survivors to Tarshish, Pul, Lud, Meshech, Tubal, Javan, and to the distant islands. I will send them to announce my wonderful glory to nations that have never heard about me. ~ Isaiah 66:19 (CEV)

Jesus, undeterred, went right ahead and gave his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” ~ Matthew 28:18-20 (MSG)

KEY IDEA:
God sends people out to share his message.
PRAYER:
Thank you, God, for including me in your world and for giving me a speaking assignment. I confess, though, that I allow myself to become distracted and that I often don't get around to what's important. Help me to refocus my life so that I'm all about telling others the story of what Jesus has done. I'm going to make sure that those around me who have never heard will do so through me. Amen.
