On a lonely night in the fields of Bethlehem there suddenly appeared an angelic host above the shepherds declaring the Good News! Now, imagine if the angels were more like believers. Imagine if they would say, "Well, I don't know. I can't share with the shepherds. What if they reject us? Maybe, I can just leave some tracts in the sheep pen, and they'll get them when they get back." What do the angels have that most believers don't? They dwell close to the Good News. If you are close to the Good News, you are going to share it. The word for the Good News in the Greek New Testament is "euangel" where we get the word evangelism. Notice the word angel in the middle of it. Evangel, that's not an accident. Those who spread the Good News, the Gospel, are those who are like angels and messengers of God. Therefore, they always stay close to God. Fill your heart with the Good News, your mind and your soul with the Good News. You won't be able to stop yourself from spreading it. Don't just be a believer, be an angel.
From Message #743 - The Everywhere Town
Let your light shine in those chance encounters with people you see and meet today and boldly proclaim the Good News of the Messiah. The power of God is at work.
