And he said unto them, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15
The book of John 3:16 says “God so loved the world that He gave His son that we may have eternal life” (paraphrased). This is the good news. From our memory verse, Jesus commanded us to share the good news. It is neither a choice nor is it subject to appeal. It is a commandment; “Go…and preach”. We are sent to preach this good news everywhere we find ourselves; our homes, offices, our neighbourhoods, and so on. Someone may say, “I don’t have the right words” or “I am shy.” Beloved, you have it on the inside. You can start by talking about John 3:16. It is not you talking but it is the Holy Ghost talking through you. The bible says, “Open your mouth and I will give thee utterance.” In whatever way you can, just preach the gospel. Preach the good news; start with your household, family, friends, colleagues. Just spread the message of hope today. Make a decision today not to let a day pass without talking to someone about Christ. He that wins a soul is wise.
There are blessing for those who preach the gospel and there are also punishments for those who don’t. “Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul. Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.” (Ezekiel 3:19-20). The underlined show us that we are meant to preach the gospel for the salvation of men. When you don’t and they die in sin, you will be held responsible. Therefore, if you are a beneficiary of the good news, tell others about it.
We are in our enlargement campaign this month. This is a month of radical evangelism. Allow God to use you. Become a tool in His hands to reach the hopeless and lost around you. Tell them about Jesus and also invite them to church to continue hearing the same Word that has blessed you, and enjoy from the same fountain of anointing you have been drinking from.
My wife was pregnant and when she was due, the doctor said she can only deliver through surgery. I was sacred at first but I decided to use the oil of gladness and pray with her. To the glory of God and to the confusion of doctors, she delivered safely without surgery. Praise God!
