Hear, Believe, Go, Tell

WS-devo_PMSAfter Mary saw Jesus, she went and told his followers, who were very sad and were crying. But Mary told them that Jesus was alive. She said that she had seen him, but the followers did not believe her. Later, Jesus showed himself to two of his followers while they were walking in the country, but he did not look the same as before. These followers went back to the others and told them what had happened, but again, the followers did not believe them. Later Jesus showed himself to the eleven apostles while they were eating, and he criticized them because they had no faith. They were stubborn and refused to believe those who had seen him after he had risen from the dead.

Jesus said to his followers, “Go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone. (‭Mark‬ ‭16‬:‭10-15‬ NCV)

Initially, those who were first sent out didn't believe those who told them Jesus had risen from the dead.

Is it any wonder that people whom we tell about Jesus don't always hear and believe at first? I know I didn't believe at first. We all need Jesus to reveal Himself to us personally. How? Our hearts need to be open and willing to believe.

So go, tell, be an example, and trust the Lord to reveal Himself to those you tell. ©Word-Strong_2015
