DAY 8 TUESDAY: DECEMBER 2020

BE CUSTODIAN OF GOD’S MESSAGE OF SALVATION!

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 expected to be a custodian of God’s message of salvation to the world because it is his duty and responsibility in life. Jesus Christ is the only means to the salvation of mankind in life. There is no other alternative 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 a custodian of God’s message of salvation to the world in general. Therefore, he is highly expected to preach the gospel message of salvation in life. Hence, God’s message of salvation is absolutely the only hope of mankind both here and hereafter in life forever.

When Jesus Christ died and resurrected, He gave His Great Commission to all Christians in life thus, “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). Therefore, it is the duty of every Christian to carry out diligently the Great Mandate of Jesus Christ to the whole wide world in life. This shows that every Christian is a custodian of the gospel message of salvation to the world in life. A Christian should never fold his hands and expect angels to preach it in life. Indeed, it is highly the responsibility and duty of all Christians to absolutely preach the gospel message of salvation to all mankind in life forever.

Apostle Paul was a great custodian of the gospel message of salvation to his generation in life. That is the reason why he stated boldly 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, the gospel message of salvation is indeed mandatory to all Christians irrespective of status, class and educational qualifications in life. Every Christian should be bold and courageous to proclaim God’s message of salvation to the lost world in life. Therefore, winning lost souls for the Lord is absolutely the utmost concern and priority of all Christians in life forever.

Daily Tip: A Christian is a custodian of God’s message of salvation to the world; therefore, he is expected to preach it with all boldness and be courageous in life forever. Shalom!
