Stewards of the Gospel

Jesus told his disciples and he tells us, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey | everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age" (Matthew 28:19-20).

In Christ and through our Baptism, we have been called by God to a minis-try of spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. We are to spread the Gos-pel to others in the hope that through the power of the Holy Spirit, they may come to understand God’s love and mercy as well as know Christ as their personal Savior.

As the greatest command ever given, the Great Commission calls us to be stewards of the Gospel. As stewards of the Gospel, we share God’s Word and our own knowledge and experience with others. Spreading the Gospel is what we are to be about. ". . . You are to be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8).

As followers of Christ and as God’s stewards, we have been entrusted with the Gospel, and, through our witnessing, we prove our faithfulness (1 Corinthians 4:20). Jesus continues to call us to lives of witnessing. Through the working of the Holy Spirit, we can become faith stewards of the Gospel.

Prayer: Dear good and gracious heavenly Father, we thank that you have given us the opportunity and responsibility to be your witnesses to the world. Grant us the courage to boldly proclaim your love and forgiveness in Christ to all people. In your precious name we pray. Amen.

Blessings on your stewardship journey!

Your Stewardship Committee
