Share your blessing

“After they had further proclaimed the word of the Lord and testified about Jesus, Peter and John returned to Jerusalem, preaching the gospel in many Samaritan villages.”
‭‭Acts‬ ‭8‬:‭25‬ ‭NIV‬‬

The disciples who were with Jesus believed that it was their responsibility to use the gift that they had been given and to share the good news of Jesus Christ. The ministry that Peter and John did with Jesus was done north of Samaria up around Cana and Capernaum, so preaching and testify about Jesus to the Samaritans as they were returning to Jerusalem. They took the time to speak to those that they met along the journey back to Jerusalem. We don’t exactly know if they went out of their way or just took advantage of the villages that were on their way. Either way they were giving the blessing that they had been given from Jesus.

When it comes to us, are we more worried about the destination or the journey and the opportunities that present themselves? Jesus’ life was full of blessing others. He did not just go from Bethlehem to Calvary, He took time to help others even when it was difficult. Yet today some people are so focused on the destination that they miss the point of the journey to the destination. The journey allows times for ministry to happen. For joy to be shared. For healing to happen. For help to be given. For comfort to be administered. For the good news of Jesus Christ to be shared. We need to make sure that the we don’t loose sight of Christ which means following in His lead. Jesus who stopped on the side of the road for a blind man, who had time for children, who ministered to people who were not accepted by others. Take time to be holy. Take time to share the blessing that Jesus has given to you.
