1 Thessalonians 2:4: “On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts.”
This is truly a month of movement! Through our daily Go Guide, we have been inspired and challenged to overcome barriers and have reflected on the stories of faith. How has this helped you to step out in faith to share the love of Jesus? Do you know other followers of Jesus that can join you? This week, we learn about our wonderful, God-given responsibility and we will be encouraged to live it out.
Go2020 is focused on mobilizing every believer to be a witness of Jesus Christ. Part of being mobilized is understanding the incredible responsibility God has entrusted to us—the good news of the Kingdom! God has approved us for this task. You may have said at some point, “God could never use me!” and yet, he has chosen you to be his ambassador! Approved and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we can overcome the fear of man and speak boldly the words of God. We are privileged, not just to know God, but to speak of Him to others and we speak to please God. Let’s do that every day in the month of May!

Ask God to remind you of the identity as God’s child that He has given to you through Jesus. Rejoice in the approval of your Father God and ask Him to bring more people to know him as Father.
