DAY 9 SATURDAY: MAY 2020

PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST ALWAYS!

Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching (2 Timothy 4:2).

         


It is the duty of every Christian to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ always. This is the divine mandate that God gave to all Christians irrespective of status, background and denomination. God does not expect you to fail in this mandate of soul-winning. The Bible says in the opening text that you should preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that it is his divine duty to always preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Hence, a Christian is expected to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone including all nations of the earth in life forever.

Through the preaching of the gospel, God manifests His Word to mankind in life. The preaching of the gospel message of Jesus Christ is committed to all Christians of the world in life. That is why the Bible says in Titus 1:3, “But has in due time manifested His word through preaching, which was committed to me according to the commandment of God our Savior.” Therefore, the preaching of the gospel message of Jesus Christ had been committed to every Christian in life. The gospel message was indeed committed to every Christian through the manifestation of God’s Word of salvation in life. Indeed, a devoted Christian is a custodian of the gospel message of Jesus Christ in life forever.

In fact, God expects you to preach the gospel message of Jesus Christ always because it is the only weapon for the salvation of mankind in life. Without the preaching of the gospel, mankind is eternally doomed in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” In fact, there is absolutely no sane Christian that should be ashamed to preach the gospel message of Jesus Christ in life. Everyone should take note of the fact that the gospel message of Jesus Christ is the only panacea for the salvation of mankind both here and even hereafter in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to preach the gospel message of Jesus Christ to everyone including all nations of the earth always because it has no alternative in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
