Only Twice a Year

Did you know that according to the Bible we (as Christians) are only commanded to share the Gospel twice a year? It's true. I imagine upon reading this, there are probably some of you who sigh in relief saying "thank goodness" - and there are probably some of you who may be thinking "that's ridiculous". Well let's look to Scripture to see what I am talking about.

2 Timothy 4:1-5
1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

In season and out of season - the only two times we are commanded to do the work of an evangelist. This means when it is popular, and when it is unpopular. This means when it is easy, and when it is hard. This means during the holidays (like Christmas and Easter), and on the normal ordinary days. Really this means all the time.

If you are not already obedient in this command, may today be the day that you begin a new walk with your Savior living in obedience. "I charge you before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ"
