Word of the Day
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15).
7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. Luke 15:7
16 For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for necessity is laid upon me; yes, woe is me if I do not preach the gospel! 1 Corinthians 9:16
The Lord Jesus, before His glorious ascension, charged us to go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. We’re His faithful and empowered witnesses.
You can say like Paul, “And I thank Christ Jesus ourLord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry” (1 Timothy 1:12). Your life as aChristian is to bear witness of the reality of the Kingdom, and minister the Gospel to those in your world and in the regions beyond.
You’ve received the power to be a faithful and effective witness of the Lord Jesus. He has made you an able minister of the Gospel (2 Corinthians 3:6). One vital evidence that the Holy Spirit is active in your life is soul winning; dynamic evangelism! Whenever people received the Holy Spirit in the Bible, they preached and taught the Word with boldness, resulting in the conversion of sinners. For example, Peter ministered the Gospel and converted three thousand souls in one day: “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls” (Acts 2:41).
message is the only hope for the world today. It’s man’s only means of
salvation. Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of
Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth;
to the Jew first, and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16). It’s your
responsibilityas a minister of reconciliation to take the message of Christ’s
salvation to the lost and dying of this world. This is your calling, and you’ve
been empowered for the job!
Dear heavenly Father, necessity is laid upon me to preach the Gospel; it’s all that I live for! Thank you for your grace and power at work in me as I reach out to the unsaved with the Gospel, delivering them from darkness into light, and from the power of darkness unto God, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
