WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO FOR THE GOSPEL?
“So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:15-17 KJV
Can I ask you a few questions? I would really like you to think deeply before answering them.
Do you believe that the Gospel of Christ is the Power of God to save all men?
Do you believe the Gospel of Christ is the answer to all human needs?
Do you believe that the Gospel of Christ is the solution to all of mankind’s problems?
Do you believe that God has called you and ordained you to be a preacher of His gospel?
If you answered yes to all of the following then let me ask you one more question?
What are you doing for the gospel?
Every believer (not the Pastors, leaders or even old time believers) old and new has the responsibility to ensure that the Gospel of Christ spreads all around the world.
Our Lord and Master Jesus Christ left us with one command when he was leaving this world
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”
Mark 16:15-16 KJV
You need to see it this way that many people would be damned on that last day because you, me and other believers refused to tell this dying world about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The key to someone’s salvation is literally in your hands and your mouth.
All you have to do is open your mouth to that friend, that colleague, that family member and tell them about Jesus!
Our job is to do the preaching while it’s the Holy Spirit’s job to do the rest.
But if we don’t go out and first preach, the Holy Spirit can’t do much to save a soul.
Angels don’t preach to unbelievers, so also the Holy Spirit doesn’t preach to unbelievers. In the whole equation for salvation, it’s only you and I that has been given the high privilege to preach the gospel of Christ to this dying world.
What an honour, what a great privilege, that God would trust us so much to commit the first and most important step in the salvation nor damnation of a soul to us.
Never ever take this for granted.
Go out there, preach the gospel- with everything you are and with everything you have. Make friends for the gospel, use your social clout for the gospel, serve in church for the gospel, give for the gospel. Do all you can for the gospel because at the end of our lives and at the end of time, what would really count is what you did for the gospel.
So I ask you once again- What are you going to do for the Gospel?
I’m committed, more than ever, to world evangelism, because I’m convinced that the Gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes. I take my place in the ministry of the Gospel, fully committed to its spread around the world, fulfilling God’s plan of bringing many to righteousness, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.
