Eagerness to learn and to teach others

In the Greek Scriptures the disciples of Jesus bring the account of the works and words of Jesus (Jeshua) and how they coped with it. The books of the New Testament tell us how they where chosen by the master teacher. We are also shown how they were eager to learn and how they asked him many questions to come to know more about the one whom they considered to be “the saviour of the world” (John 4:42).

The master teacher made it clear to his followers that he wanted his messages to spread, not only in one small region, but  that they would take care that there would come witnesses “in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

At first the preaching may have concentrated on Jerusalem until Stephen was killed. After that tragic occurrence many followers of Christ became scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles (verse 1).

Today the call of Jesus is still of importance. We should make work of it. We can not ignore the call of Christ to go out into the world. All over the world the gospel should be preached, and we should be partakers of that witnessing for Christ and for Jehovah and for the coming Kingdom.

We find lots of people who call themselves Christian but really do not follow that master teacher who is the sent one from God. A majority even not read the Bible and do not often go to services where they can hear the Word of God. Others may read and hear about the message of the kingdom and of Christ’s return to establish it, but do not do much with it. Though our heavenly Father demands action. We have to show our love for God and have to worship Him as well as telling others about our love.
