The act of being a student, be able to be taught and learn then later share the message to those who don’t know it.
When Jesus began his work in Galilee, we see that he did not intend to do his work alone, Mathew 4:18-22 “…come with me and I will teach you to catch men…”here Jesus called four fishermen; Simon Peter and his brother Andrew and James and John the sons of Zebedee.These men were doing the work of nettingfish;Jesus thought it wise to rather transform them into netting men and bringing them to the kingdom of God. Mathew 9:9 Jesus called Mathew the tax collector to follow him. Mark 3:13 Jesus chose his 12 disciples and he assigned them to do his work. In this process of calling his apostles, Jesus kept on teaching. Before he called these disciples, each one of them had their own businesses, neither were they sitting idle nor were they evangelizing. Before they begunevangelizingJesus made sure he taught them the message. That is why it is important to learn and understand the gospel message before sharing it. It is written that it must never be altered, it must remain the way it is written in revelation 22:18.
After calling these disciples, Jesus went ahead and gave them authority to drive away evil spirits and heal every disease and sickness as well as spreading the message. Mathew 10:1…says that the harvest was too large but there were no harvesters. Even now the harvest is too large but there are few workers to gather in God’s harvest. This is where you as a Christian believer, you are required to chip in and fill this gap. Mathew 28:19 “go then to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.”
Even after Jesus’ death and resurrection, his disciples continued in fellowship and evangelism. Acts 2:44 “all the believers continued together in close fellowship and shared their belongings with one another” reading that verse going down, the apostles spread the good news not only spiritually but also physically through baptizing, sharing belongings and even healing the sick. The same kind of awe that people were filled with then, we should be filled with now. But this can’t easily happen since the devil is trying hard to widen the gap between God and His people. As a believer it is our duty to fill this gap and fulfill the mission of the gospel as intended.
