DAY 3 SATURDAY: OCTOBER 2020

BECOME A CUSTODIAN OF GOD’S SAVING POWER!

Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).

Every Christian is supposed to be a custodian of God’s saving power to his generation in life. God expects you as a Christian to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the dying world in life. It is because the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only remedy to the salvation of mankind in life. The Bible says in the opening text that nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that he is indeed a custodian of God’s saving power to his generation in life. Hence, a life without Jesus Christ is a life that is empty and full of vanities in life forever.

God has committed the gospel of Christ Jesus into the hands of every Christian in life. Therefore, as Christians we are not expected to toy with the preaching of the gospel because in it lies the saving power of mankind in life. That is why Apostle Paul said in 1 Timothy 1:11 thus, “According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.” Therefore, the gospel which is the good news of Jesus Christ’s birth, life, ministry, death, burial, resurrection, ascension and His second coming had been committed to a Christian’s trust in life. Jesus Christ’s gospel is the only panacea to man’s total salvation in life. Indeed, it is the only panacea to man’s total well-being and salvation both here and hereafter in life forever.

Of course, it was because of this knowledge Apostle Paul became a custodian of God’s saving power to his generation in life. That is the reason why he said in Romans 1:16 thus, “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, whoever that is indeed ashamed to identify himself with the gospel message of Jesus Christ is doomed eternally in life both here and hereafter. The knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ gives boldness to man for his total salvation in life. Therefore, a Christian should take note of the fact that the salvation of God to mankind had been entrusted into his hands in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to become a custodian of God’s saving power to his generation 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).
