Making Jesus Famous

Making Jesus famous has been a big buzz topic the last few years in Christianity. For a while, it was the cool thing to say that you were “seeking to make Jesus famous.” I always had a little quirk about agreeing with that sentiment, because

1) I can’t really find a Bible verse that directs us to do that
2) Jesus doesn’t need us to make Him famous (Philippians 2:9-11 tells us God will do that)
3) I think “fame” as we think about it in our entertainment culture is not quite the same at what the Bible has in mind.


Jesus becomes famous when lives are changed. In the Gospel of Mark chapter 1, we read the story of Jesus casting out a demon in the synagogue. When He did, His followers were “amazed” at His authority. And because of what Jesus did, verse 28 tells us what happened:

And immediately His fame spread throughout all the region around Galilee.  Mark 1:28

Jesus becomes famous when lives are changed. Want to make Him famous? Go tell someone about Him who doesn’t know Him

They will be changed, and He will be famous.
