PREACH THE GOSPEL!
And the gospel must first be preached to all nations. —Mark 13:10
And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. —Matthew 24:14
He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. —Luke 24:46-48
How are we as individuals and local churches involved in preaching the gospel “to all nations?” In what way are we having an impact beyond our neighborhoods, cities, states and nation that the gospel will go beyond to other nations of the world? Hopefully we are sharing the gospel in our neighborhoods, towns, states and nations as well. But how are we involved with other followers of Jesus in getting the gospel out to all nations? This is a key expectation of our Lord Jesus Christ.
A man at the State Prison was one of the original MS-13 gang members. The Lord Jesus saved him and is transforming the man. All who know him, staff and other inmates, know he is the real deal. After writing down his testimony of how the Lord drew him to Himself, another inmate sent it in to a publisher. They published it and all 12,000 Cuban solders have received a copy, 300,000 copies in French were sent to Sierra Leone and the Spanish copy is being used in Mexico and of course the English version is being distributed as well. All is this from a follower of Jesus presently in prison who is powerfully impacted by Him. God’s Word in a person’s life truly is not confined by concrete, steel, wire or anything else!
So how are you sharing the gospel? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bba2Dqaw6SI
Dear Father, may the gospel be forefront in my life and may I proclaim the gospel to those around me and as you give opportunity—- beyond my location. May it be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
