Verse Of The Day : Then his disciples went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the signs that accompanied it. Mark 16:20 (ISV).
Thought of The Day : God works for us when we are ready to work with Him.
LISTEN : The gospel of salvation is the path to eternal life. Jesus Christ is the message. He is the way to God. As a matter of fact, there is no other way except Him. The Bible says,
“Jesus says unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.”
Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. There is no other way to God except Him. Anyone who must come to God must pass through Jesus Christ and him alone. Therefore, all believers in Him should passionately spread this message of salvation. It is worth our labour, and our labour will surely be rewarded. Labouring in the gospel of Christ is the proof that we love God and the world Christ died for. Like the early church, we should go everywhere with the gospel. Jesus Christ went everywhere with it, preaching to the high and mighty; rich and poor; young and old, and all manner of people. Beloved, are you running with the gospel of Christ? Are you serious in spreading it to the unsaved? Our verse of the day says,
“Then his disciples went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord kept working with them and confirming the message by the signs that accompanied it.“
My dear, if you’re a true disciple of Christ Jesus, you will not hesitate to spread the gospel of salvation to the unsaved. Therefore, let’s rise and take the gospel to the unsaved today. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Be serious with the gospel of Christ Jesus. Spread the message of the kingdom to the world.
2. Wherever you go or whatever you do, put God first and share the gospel of Christ.
3. Determine to get deeply involved in kingdom service.
4. Develop your passion for evangelism and ask God to strengthen you mightily for his work.
Prayer : Everlasting Father! I acknowledge that it’s my responsibility to spread the gospel of Christ Jesus. Therefore, help me to take up this responsibility, in Jesus ’ name, amen!
A Word Of Blessing : Today, I speak on your life, may God strengthen you to preach the gospel of Christ wherever you go, and whatever you do, in Jesus ’ name, amen!
Reflection : Labouring in the gospel of Christ is the proof that we love God and the world Christ died for.
Quote : The gospel of Christ is all we need. It is worth our labour, and our labour will surely be rewarded.
