THE WHY? Christ! The Bible tells us in John 14:6 that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and that no man comes to the Father but by Him. The only way that anyone will spend eternity with Jesus in Heaven, is to have a personal relationship with Christ. You are not going to get there being good or working really hard. Christ is the WHY!
THE WAY? How do we need to go about sharing Christ with others? There are many Biblical examples to the way we are to share Christ. One of those examples is found in Daniel. Like Daniel, we have to be surrendered. We have to overcome our thoughts and desires and surrender ourselves to Christ. Next, we have to be present. If you're not there, you're not there. You have to be present in order to share. Daniel was surrendered, present and next, he was compassionate. Rather than judging someone, we need to love them! Last, we have to be honest. Even though the message we are called to share may be devastating to someone, just like Daniel, we have to be honest. There is nothing more devastating than being separated from Christ for eternity. Surrendered, present, compassionate and honesty is the WAY!
THE WHEN? Now! Each of us has basically three days. Yesterday, yesterday is in the books. About the only thing you can do with yesterday is learn from it. Tomorrow, is tomorrow, it has not happened yet. About the only thing you can do about tomorrow is influence it with the last of the three days, Today. Today is the only day you can take action. Yesterday is in the book and unfortunately there are no mulligans (do overs). Tomorrow will be influenced by what you do today. The Bible says that today is the day of salvation, not yesterday or tomorrow. Today is the WHEN!
THE WHERE? Everywhere! The Bible tells us in Acts 1:8 that we shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon us; and that we shall be witnesses to Christ in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. Let's simplify where we are to be witnesses for Christ to here, there and everywhere. Here is where you live. In many ways here is the easiest place to start being a witness for Christ. Here also prepares you for there. The next place we are to be witnesses for Christ is "there." There is a little farther away than "here." The people might look like you, but they are a little different. They may not talk like you, live like you or act like you. Just as here prepares you for there, there prepares you for everywhere. Everywhere is a long way from here (ends of the earth). The people who live everywhere may look nothing like you. In fact, they may not talk, live or believe anything like you do "Here." Here, There and Everywhere is the WHERE!
