Do I have to go far away to be a missionary and tell others about Jesus?
Here's the answer:
No, you don’t have to go far away to be a missionary and tell others about Jesus!
God wants you to share the gospel message of Jesus with everyone you meet, no matter where you are. Some people go to faraway countries to be missionaries, but we’re all supposed to be missionaries, even when we’re at home. Jesus wants you to talk to others about who He is and tell them that He died on the cross for our sins. He wants you to talk about Him to your friends, neighbors, family, and everyone else you know.
Sometimes we share the gospel by sharing stories from the Bible. But did you know that we’re always sharing with others by our actions? We need to be sure our actions always show other people that Jesus is important to you and that He has changed your heart and is making it more like His! Often, our actions and attitudes can be a witness to others and may have a greater effect than our words.
"So you must go and make disciples of all nations. Baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19).
"But make sure in your hearts that Christ is Lord. Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you about the hope you have. Be read to give the reason for it. But do it gently and with respect" (1 Peter 3:15).
