For, “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in him whom they have not heard? How will they hear without a preacher? And how will they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the Good News of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!” So faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:13-15, 17
The world’s most powerful weapon is the nuclear bomb. It destroys through a chain reaction. Splitting one atom splits another atom, and so on, releasing a level of energy and power that desolates anything in its path.
Jesus Christ once started His own chain reaction. But not one that destroys. Through His words and through His sacrifice on the cross, He released an impact wave that created new life.
You play a part in this chain reaction. Jesus spoke His Word to His apostles, they spoke it to others, and hopefully, someone eventually spoke it to you.
With the new life you’ve been given, it’s the most natural thing to speak it to others—to continue this chain reaction—to send shock waves of eternal life throughout your neighborhood and your world.
So, react appropriately to the new life you’ve been given. Pass His Word on to those who so desperately need to hear.
