"Jesus told His disciples and tells us too: ‘As you speak for me to people, I will speak for you to God and the angels. You represent Me on earth; I will represent you in heaven. And when the Father examines your life, He will not see your faults and failings-He will see you wrapped in My perfect character. And everyone who shares My sacrifice to save the lost will share the joy and glory of having saved them.’
Sharing Jesus with others is more than having the correct doctrines or beliefs. It’s is about sharing the love Jesus has for others. We can misrepresent Jesus by speaking words that are untruthful or unkind, or by being lazy or rude or selfish. If we do these things on earth, then Jesus cannot stand up for us in heaven.
Jesus knew that sending out His disciples and His followers throughout history would cause battles on every side, because Satan would always oppose them. His followers would have to be willing to give up everything-and everyone they loved, if necessary-to share His mission to the world. He promised any act of kindness shown to His followers would be rewarded as if it had been done to Him personally.
And so Jesus finished His instructions and sent His evangelists to preach His gospel and share His love by acts of kindness.”-Man of Peace pg.102
-Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in and for what is right, no matter what the cost.
