Rhapsody Of Reality Tuesday, 10 April 2018 – Pastor Chris
Send us around the world with the news of your saving power and your eternal plan for all mankind (Psalm 67:2 TLB).
The Lord Jesus, in Mark 16:15, said, “…Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
He commissioned us to preach the good news of God’s Kingdom, and God’s eternal plan for all humanity. Our responsibility, as preachers of righteousness, is the greatest honour and privilege on the face of the earth.
We’re bearers of the news of His saving power; dispensers of eternal verities.
This was something the likes of David, the prophet of God, contemplated and wished to be a part of, hence his inspiring words in our opening verse.
All he had was the promissory note of salvation, yet he was so inspired and excited, and wished he could go around the world to herald this great news of God’s saving power.
As new creations, and being in the world at a time when what David admired and looked forward to has been fulfilled, how could we be quiet? Jeremiah said,
“…But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay” (Jeremiah 20:9).
Make your life count with God by making an impact with the Gospel; be committed to soul winning.
A very important evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit in your life is dynamic evangelism!
In Acts 1:8, Jesus said, “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me….”
You can’t claim that God saved you, and not tell others about it. Don’t keep quiet; preach the Gospel everywhere.
The Bible says the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes (Romans 1:16), and you’re the bearer of the message. The power won’t work except the message is preached. Therefore, be faithful in your responsibility as a soul winner.
Righteous Father, I’m so grateful for your boundless blessings in my life. Thank you for the power of the Spirit that’s at work in me to effectively minister the Gospel to those in my world, and in the regions beyond. Your grace is released even now for hearts to be touched, and converted by the news of your saving power, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Mark 16:15-16 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Colossians 1:27-28* To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
2 Timothy 4:2-5 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
