Proclaim Christ To The World

Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him. And falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” And he said, “Who are you, Lord?” And He said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.” ~ Acts 9:3-5

Before Paul became the greatest apostle who ever lived, he was Saul, one of the greatest suppressors of the Truth. Saul was blinded by a veil, unable to see the Truth of who Jesus is, so he tried to silence the spreading of the Gospel by the execution of the Saints. Why? Because of this, Jesus confronted Saul from heaven because even though Jesus wasn’t the one physically being persecuted on earth, it was Jesus that Saul was truly attacking and persecuting. Why? Because we are Christ’s representation on earth, and Christ lives through us. Therefore, Saul was persecuting Jesus.

Today is no different. When we silence the Truth because we don’t like it, it offends us, or we don’t want to follow it, we silence Jesus because He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. When we try to convince others that the Truth is wrong because our God would never allow it to be true, then it’s God we’re arguing with and attacking, not the person who is speaking the Truth. The person is just the vessel by which the LORD gets His message out.

So, be careful who you persecute. Be careful whom you condemn. We should always ask questions and test the spirit, but we should never become hostile, even if the person is wrong. We are to be peacemakers, uniters, and the light in the darkness. When someone says they’re preaching the Truth of God, check the Scriptures to see if it’s true. Bring it before the LORD. Never blindly accept any teaching as Truth, but test each word spoken as the Bereans did with Paul. And if you find that it is Truth, don’t be offended by it; instead, humbly accept it. Don’t allow your own thoughts and biases to keep you from the Truth of God. Don’t silence Christ; instead, proclaim Him.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Proclaim Christ To The World.
