I read a post this morning called “Mother Angelica’s Role in My Reversion to Catholicism.” It’s an inspiring story of a man who found his way back to the Lord with the help of the Catholic television show, EWTN. Reading the story did not only make me feel joyous, but also caused me to think about how the Gospel of Christ is being shared in this modern world.
Unlike the early followers of Christ who had to walk on foot across deserts or sail across dangerous oceans just to share the love and grace of Jesus, modern-day Christians are blessed with technology and methods that can make gospel-sharing easier and more far-reaching. How many of us are actually doing our part in spreading the good news of salvation? How many of us are actually obeying the command of Jesus to “go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature”?
Each of us is called to share the Gospel, first of all through our lives and secondly by talking about it to others. With the technology in our hands, we can easily spread the love of Jesus to others.
Remember that we will only be going home until all the world has heard of the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. “And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14) Don’t you want to go home?
