THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES God Does NOT ‘Play Favorites’!
Most likely the greatest hindrance to spreading the Gospel of Christ in the first century was the conflict between Jews and Gentiles. Most of the early believers were Jewish, and to them it was scandalous to think of associating with Gentiles. But when God told Peter to take the Good News to a Roman, Peter obeyed despite his background and personal feelings. God was making it clear that the Good News of Christ is for everyone! We should not allow anything to keep us from telling others about Christ.
I have not done research into the data but I suspect that the great barrier to sharing the gospel in America today is Christian apathy. It is very easy to fall into Satan’s trap of indifference. We think someone else will do the job. But how can we be sure the story is told unless we tell it? We think ‘they’ are not interested in Jesus anyway. But how can we be sure unless we tell them? We often fail to share the good news with people all around us who are headed into eternity without Jesus when we know that Jesus is the only way to God. And if we don’t know that Jesus is the Only Way to Heaven, we need to discover the Truth for ourselves! (John 14:6)
