Don Shenk: This Easter, Christ Wants Us to Follow His Commandment to Share the Good News With the World

He is risen! That’s more than a simple Easter greeting; it’s a proclamation of a truth that is foundational to the gospel Christians embrace. Unfortunately, there are still many people who haven’t even heard the truth that Jesus shed his blood on the cross for their sins, and they still live in spiritual darkness with no hope.

Because of this tragic fact—still true even at a time when we celebrate Christ’s resurrection and His ultimate sacrifice for all people—The Tide global gospel radio ministry tells people about Jesus in their own language so that they too may experience a new life of full confidence and assurance in Christ, our living Savior!

The Old Testament records the detailed instructions God gave through Moses for the Israelites to enage in celebrations to honor God and keep alive the memory of specific things God had done for them. One of those was the Passover celebration to commemorate the liberty God provided for the Israelites from their slavery in Egypt. We essentially carry on that tradition at Easter as we celebrate Christ as our Passover lamb and reflect on the promise of spiritual freedom and new life that is ours through Christ’s victory over death.

However, Jesus commands us to take it beyond an annual holiday celebration and embrace an ongoing lifestyle of honoring Him by accepting and living out His mandate to tell others the Good News and invite them to join us as Christ followers.

Just as Christians should be committed to fulfilling the Great Commission, believers also rejoice when they hear about lives that are being changed through our efforts with local pastors and global partners to share the gospel in eight countries on three continents in 25 languages.

At The Tide radio ministry, we are honored when listeners share their stories of how their lives are being touched by Christ through our programs. Here are just a few.
