February 7 – His Place and Our Place

Share Button


Oftentimes we make sharing the Gospel more difficult than it should be.  We live in a day and time when people think only trained theologians can articulate the faith.  Such a sentiment would not bode well with the early church.  The men who revolutionized the first century were fishermen, tax collectors, carpenters, and tent-makers who simply gave a personal testimony of God’s grace.

This is the essence of evangelism: Ordinary people telling ordinary people about an extraordinary God.  If you find it difficult to share your faith, remember these four simple truths about the Gospel.

  1. Jesus Left His Place. We must begin by telling others that Christ indeed was God and that He came from heaven. He was and is the Sinless Savior Who desires to save all people.
  2. Jesus Came to Our Place. This holy, sinless God came to us. He became man, sinless man indeed, but man nonetheless. He experienced the frailties of humanity and understands our sorrow.
  3. Jesus Took Our Place. Christ died for our sins on Calvary. He paid the price by nailing our sins to His cross.  His death on a cross was God’s ultimate display of love and forgiveness.
  4. Jesus Wants to Take Us to His Place. Christ rose from the grave, ascended back to Heaven and promises to return for His followers. When He returns, He will take those who have faith back to Heaven.
