If you’ve ever prayed, “God, I’m serious about serving You, please use me in your service” God has taken you seriously and that prayer should be followed by action. God has given us our marching orders; in Mark 16:15 Jesus instructed us, “Go into all the world (all your world) and preach the gospel to every person”.

Note that this is a command from the Lord Jesus, it is not optional.
The challenge is to rouse ourselves from the attitude that winning people to Christ is a week-end hobby in which we might or might not participate.

Endeavoring to bring people to Christ is a matter of life and death – eternal life and death. We’ve got to take it seriously. If God took the salvation of the lost so seriously that He gave heaven’s best how dare we take it lightly and give less than our best in winning people to Jesus.
