The first century Christian Church was well aware of what God wanted them to do and why they were still in this world.  They knew for a fact Jesus was alive and they believed the return of Christ was imminent. They also knew it was their responsibility to share the gospel with as many people as possible in the hope they would repent and accept forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ. And while many were wrong about the timing of His return, their passion for the gospel led many into the eternal Kingdom of Heaven.

Here’s a heart check for us: how is our level of passion and commitment for the gospel?  Do we understand the true purpose God has us in this world? Or is it more about finding God’s “special purpose” for our lives these days?  If we truly believe what the Bible teaches, that people who do not surrender to God and submit themselves to the lordship of Jesus Christ will spend eternity separated from Him in hell, then why are we so timid about sharing the good news with our family, friends and neighbors?

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss why Christians seem afraid or are hesitant to share the Gospel. We also look at Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodger’s broken collarbone from a spiritual perspective, knowing God allows things to happen in our lives to bring us back to Him. And what’s this about all the Christian players in Philadelphia?
