God is calling us to take up the responsibility as Christians to a new Evangelization.
We Christians make up for 1/3 of the world’s population and are into a lot of developmental works, doing a lot of good things , but we miss out on the essence of Christian mission.
We work with the poor, fight for justice, but did Jesus come to do all this? Jesus preached the good news of the kingdom of God. He evangelized. This does not mean that Jesus was not interested in the poor and downtrodden. He gave us the mission to provide and share with them what He has blessed us with. Our time, talent, wealth, resources so and if we share there would be no one in need just as the early Christians did.
If we are focused on what is most essential, then everything else should fall into place. When we neglect what is most essential, then whatever good we desire or try to do could easily lead us astray, and we end up opposing Christ and his mission. Our basic work is spiritual, not social, political or economic.
When we evangelize we are engaged in a spiritual warfare and the evil one brings obstacles to enslave God’s people against God’s plan . When Jesus drove out the demons he ordered them not to speak. They knew him as the Son of God. Do we really know Jesus. What is the relationship we have with him?
Many of us Christians know about Jesus but not what He has called us to do -that is to live our lives loving God, loving our neighbor and striving to be perfect. Jesus is calling us to preach and proclaim the good news of salvation and to set people free from the evil one.
This is the new Evangelizsation.
