Go and make disciples

Romans 10:14 But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?

Have you ever led someone to Christ? If not, why not? Maybe you think that God can never use you in this way, that you’re not gifted in that area. If that is the case, why did Jesus give the Great Commission to every Christian? Every believer is called to “go and make disciples of all the nations . . . ” (Matthew 28:19).
I have to admit I do not understand why God chose people to communicate His truth. I remember being in an English class in school where we were required to give a five-minute speech in front of the class on an assigned topic. I was so nervous I almost threw up.
But when I came to faith in Christ, I realized the best way to help people believe was to tell them. I realized it is not about me or what I feel comfortable doing; it’s about obeying God. How can people hear about Christ unless someone tells them? That someone is supposed to be you and me.
