Sharing the Good News
What is our calling? To glorify God. How do we do this? One way is telling others about Him. Telling them that there is a God and He wants to have a relationship with you.
In Christianity God reaches down to mankind and initiates the relationship, Not all religions have written scriptures. Not all believe that God has spoken through words to His creation. Again, from the Christian perspective, God has revealed Himself through both the natural order and orally through select humans. The latter is called “divine revelation.” If faith is a rational process, then we should be able to deduce its legitimacy from reading the scriptures that claim to be revelation. These scriptures must be reasonable.
It is out duty as Christians to show others where to find God. Why? Because that is what he told us to do.
“And Jesus came up 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 the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
– Matthew 28:18-20
