DAY 17 THURSDAY: DECEMBER 2020

KEEP BURNING FERVENTLY TO PROPAGATE THE GOSPEL!

Not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord (Romans 12:11).

Every Christian is expected to keep burning fervently to propagate the gospel in life. The gospel centers on Jesus Christ’s birth, life and ministry, death, burial, resurrection, ascension and Second Advent of His coming in life. The Bible says in the opening text that not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to keep burning fervently to propagate the gospel in life. We are supposed as Christians to be fervent in the Lord, burning in the spirit and serving the Lord even as we propagate the gospel of Jesus Christ in life. The gospel of Jesus Christ is supposed to be propagated fervently with absolute confidence to the glory of God in life forever.

As a Christian, God has set you as a light to the unbelievers so that through your ministry the gospel of Jesus Christ would reach out to the world in life. That is why the Bible says in Acts 13:47, “For so the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, that you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.” Therefore, whenever a Christian becomes a light to the Gentiles, he is also burning fervently to propagate the gospel of Jesus Christ to the unsaved in life. A Christian is the weapon of God in propagating the gospel of Jesus Christ to the unsaved in life. The gospel of Jesus Christ is absolutely the only weapon that can save mankind from sin in life forever.

The major reason why every Christian needs to keep burning in propagating the gospel of Jesus Christ is because God wants the entire universe to be filled with the knowledge of Him which represents His glory to the world in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Habakkuk 2:14, “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.” In fact, God indeed wants the entire universe to be filled with the knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ in life. Furthermore, the propagation of Jesus Christ’s gospel reveals the glory of God in life. The glory of God in a Christian’s life is absolutely unveiled fully whenever he whole-heartedly engaged himself in soul winning through the propagation of the gospel message of Jesus Christ in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to keep burning fervently in propagating the gospel message of Jesus Christ to the unsaved in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come (Matthew 24:14).
