God’s Priority

God’s Priority

In Matthew 28:18–20, we have the top priority on God’s list,

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Just imagine after the Resurrection that an angel comes up to Jesus and says, “Jesus, this is wonderful! You have paid the price for mankind’s sin. What are You going to do to let the whole world know that they can be saved and they won’t have to perish and spend an eternity without God? What is Your plan? How are You going to do it?”

And Jesus replies by saying, “Well, My few disciples are going to tell people, who in turn will tell other people, who are going to tell other people, who are going to tell other people.”

Puzzled, the angel then asks, “Well, do You have a backup plan?” And Jesus says, “No.” Still confused, the angel asks, “Well, no offense, Lord, but what if they fail?” Jesus replies by saying, “I have confidence in them.”

My friend, there is no Plan B. God has no backup plan. You and I are it! We are Plan A! The problem is, too many Christians today do not have God’s priority as their priority.

Over the next few devotionals, I am going to share with you what I call the five “P”s of evangelism. I pray they will encourage you to actively share the Good News of our risen Savior!
