25 Mar WATCH YOUR MESSAGE
2 Corinthians 4:5-7
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
Sometimes I tend to agree with people who say that the gospel is not being preached today. When I say gospel, I mean the good news of God’s salvation of humanity through the atoning work of His Son Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary. It is true that God does not endorse a life of poverty and misery in this temporal life, but we also have to understand that this life is truly temporal. So instead of working hard to try to make it big here on earth, we should also be mindful of the life beyond; and that is where the gospel comes in.
If your message to your hearers is short of the gospel, you are in default of the Great Commission. The Apostle Paul was emphatic that his preaching was nothing short of the gospel of Jesus Christ which is the power of God to save people.
If we do not clearly, simply and powerfully present the gospel, we are not promoting eternal life for our hearers; we are only preparing them to live on an earth that is on its way out one of these days. Every Christian owes it to God to bring another person into the kingdom while you have life. This is a command, not an option.
1. Thank God again for the atoning work of Christ on the cross for which reason you are saved.
2. Ask God for wisdom, and the courage to share the message of His love with all humanity.
3. Father, above all that I do in this life, please help me become a soul-winner for the kingdom of God.
I declare that I am a soul-winner. All I have and all I am going to have belongs to God and for the propagation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I pledge myself to make sharing the love of God to people around me a priority. I am committed to depopulating hell and populating heaven. I will be the reason for constant rejoicing in heaven over souls being saved here on earth in the name of Jesus
