Jesus did not have a Plan B, We are all called

Imagine spending years of your life getting to know someone only for them to leave you with no plan b.

Through God sending his only son Jesus, without a Plan B, we are all called to be disciples.

Not only did they leave, but they were crucified on a cross before your very eyes. Hung on a tree for all humanity.

Overwhelmed with sorrow and guilt you try to pick your life back up.

One day your friend returns to you with a request. “Go out and make disciples”

Confused you begin to struggle with the “truth.” How are you to tell others what you have seen without them thinking you are crazy? Your friend implores you, tells you have been chosen.

What if the disciples had said “no?”

Jesus had no plan B. We each are commissioned to spread the gospel:

All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age. ~ Matthew 28:16-20

You see Jesus had no other plan, no other options but for us to spread his word.

It was not only up to the disciples that lived over two-thousand years ago. It is up to each one of us today to share his message as well.

Every Christian is asked to carry on Jesus’ message to the world.

It can be as simple as a conversation with a neighbor over the dinner table, or a mission overseas, we all have the good news to share.

As Jesus hung on the tree, he poured his love out to the world for us to carry with us. It is in the way we talk, the way we act and the testimonies that we tell that prove day in and day out that Jesus was right and did not need a Plan B.

It does not matter your age, as long as you believe. There are children in this world that are making disciples every day, what is your excuse?

Go out and share God’s word, go in peace and love to serve the world, there is no plan b.

    Excellent article. Once we all understand that we were chosen to be disciples, the world will become a better place.
