I am often asked, “Why did you choose the phrase ‘MAKE JESUS FAMOUS’, isn’t He already famous?” Well, without trying to sound religious and state “Because God told me so”, I can say of certainty that I believe the mandate God has given to Believers Church is to Make Jesus Famous. Making Jesus Famous is our MISSION. Making Jesus Famous is our “wheel-house”, so to speak.
I do agree that Jesus is famous in many respects. He is famous in literary terms. Many know of Jesus from the place He holds in biblical literature. He is famous in religious jargon. Many, if not all people, who adhere to a religious set of values and principles have ‘heard’ or ‘know’ of the man named Jesus. Even antagonists, who find no belief system at all concerning a religious figure named Jesus, still acknowledge that His influence exists. Jesus is famous in Hollywood movie scripts. Jesus is famous in expressions of gratitude, “thank you Jesus”. Jesus is famous in rants of verbal frustration, “JEEESSSUUUUS Christ!”
Truth? Jesus is famous to sinner and saint alike. We must agree that Jesus is certainly famous among the throngs of humans that grace our planet. However, our goal is not to make Jesus famous in “name”, “script”, “verbage”, “jargon”, “gratitude” or “angst”. Our mission at Believers Church is to MAKE JESUS FAMOUS in our own personal lives so that others see the power of Jesus, the love of Jesus, and the message of Jesus written on our own hearts. Our mission is not for the world to KNOW His fame, but for me to personally DISPLAY His fame. So when I say “MAKE JESUS FAMOUS” I don’t state such because Jesus is an unknown historical figure. When I say MAKE JESUS FAMOUS I am stating it from the heart of His life being on DISPLAY in the actions of my life! In short, MAKE JESUS FAMOUS = Him in You to Others!
I must conclude by saying that I do agree that Jesus is ALREADY FAMOUS. But I must beg to differ on this point….The FAME of Jesus is at an all time low when it comes to being on DISPLAY in the life of a believing Christian. So join us today and MAKE JESUS FAMOUS or shall I just say “get busy letting the life and power of Jesus be on display in all you do!” HIM in YOU to OTHERS!!! That is the mission of making Jesus famous!
