DAY 18 TUESDAY: AUGUST 2020

SPREADING THE GOOD NEWS OF GOD!

That your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations (Psalm 67:2).

The word, “Good news” is obtained from the Greek Word “Gospel” meaning the salvation message of God to the world in life. This salvation message of God to the world is centered on Jesus Christ’s birth, life, ministry, death, burial, resurrection, ascension and His second coming in life. The Bible says in the opening text that your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed expects him to spread the good news of the message of salvation to all nations of the earth in life. A Christian should spread the good news of God in his life forever.

Without the good news of God, there is no salvation for anyone in life. We should stop promoting denominational doctrines, man-made opinions and ideologies, and spread the good news of Jesus Christ in life. That is why the Bible says in Colossians 1:28, “Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus.” Therefore, a Christian should be a watchman for Jesus Christ and a great teacher of God’s wisdom to all and sundry in life.  We should preach Jesus Christ and nothing else in life forever.

The good news of God is all about Jesus Christ because through Him man was reconciled to God in life. That is why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:19, “That is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.” In fact, the message of God’s reconciliation to the world through Jesus Christ had been committed into the hands of all Christians; therefore, they are expected to preach it with all zeal and dedication to the glory of God in life. Jesus Christ is the divine Mediator between man and God; while Christians are the good news carriers and peace makers in life forever.

Daily Tip: It is your divine responsibility to spread the good news of God to all nations of the earth in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15).
