"Different carriers; same message"

Acts 15:30–41
Judas and Silas, who were themselves prophets, said much to encourage and strengthen the believers. (verse 32)

A Foundations of Teaching course run by Massey University has taught me that effective, deep learning depends largely upon the willingness of the learner to engage with the subject matter. Regardless of how lively, charismatic and well-informed the teacher is, the learner is the key for getting the message across. The challenge for learners or anyone listening to a message being preached is that sometimes we may get caught up and misled by the carrier of the message. If we don’t like the preacher for whatever reason, either personally or professionally, we may switch off from listening to a great message. Or if we like the preacher too much, we may get carried away and focus too much on the preacher at how great he or she is, and miss the gospel message entirely

Reading today’s passage has reminded me that all Christians have the opportunity to carry the gospel message. This is the beauty of God’s message. It is not only ministers, pastors or missionaries who can spread God’s word, but anyone who has received Christ into their hearts. What people see as displayed in us will help to spread the message of Christ. The gospel and the good news is that God loved us so much, that he gave his only Son to die for our sins. He rose from death so that we as believers can have eternal life. What a great message, and a message that needs to be shared by all believers.

† Lord God, help us to carry the good news of your love to everyone around us. Amene
