[Stand firm…] with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. Ephesians 6:15
What does this Scripture brings to mind for you? Is this something you would like to skip and go on with reading the Bible? Or does it give you a passion to share the Gospel, maybe in the Netherlands or in another country? I believe we Christians have the responsibility to share the Gospel. To tell the Good News of peace to other people. Romans 10:17 says: Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
Share the Good News
If you and I do not share the Gospel with people around us, who will do it? Perhaps that lady in your street, or that colleague at work? Will they hear about God if you don’t speak about Him or the Gospel? Maybe you are afraid to share it with people, then I want to encourage you! You don’t have to do it alone. Don’t be scared to fail, God is with you. This is what He has promised in Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and
help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
We are all different and yet… in whatever season of life you are, how short or how long you are a child of God, we are all on our way and called to share the Good News to others. Are you involved in proclaiming the Word of God? I want to challenge you to talk with at least one person about Him. Tell this person how awesome your God is!
But maybe your situation right now is totally different. Maybe you are in trouble. Well, then it’s good to talk with someone you trust. Maybe a friend who can help you in your search for God? Don’t hesitate. Ask God to bring the right person on your path.
It could be you are a child of God for many years, but you don’t know how to help others grow in being passionate about following Jesus! Then you can also ask God to bring people to mind who want to know more about Him, so you can share this Good News.
God has given us to one another, because we cannot live by ourselves. We all, whether Christian or not, need people around us with whom we can share our heart, our worries and our questions about God and faith. That’s how we can encourage and strengthen one another in the faith.
Maybe you are someone who would like to know more about God, but you would not know whom to contact? Don’t hesitate… send a message to She Rises! We would love to hear from you and help you to get to know God.

Prayer: Dear Father, You are so good to us! You give people around us with whom we can share the Gospel. Thank You, that we could meditate today on how important it is to tell other the Good News! Give us the joy and confidence through the Holy Spirit to share the Good News of Salvation with people who do not yet know You.
We also pray for young believers who don’t know a brother or sister in Christ to speak with about their faith to become stronger! Bring Your children together Lord, we know You can do that. Bless us today in all we do. Make us strong in fighting the good fight and protect us from the schemes of the evil one! This we pray in Your mercy and grace. Amen
