Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 2 Timothy 4:2

There is one thing that is paramount for us and that is preaching the gospel. This importance was emphasized in 2 Corinthians 5:17-18, when, after we are made new creatures, we were immediately handed the task of reconciling men unto God. "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation." This shows the immediacy God attaches to the preaching of the gospel.

The preaching of the gospel is very important because it is God's medium to bring salvation that the world desperately needs. It is the miraculous power of God to vitalise dead lives. Jesus said in John 5:25: "verily, verily, I say unto you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live." We are the voice of the Lord here on earth (2 Corinthians 5:20). And when we preach the gospel we are giving the Lord the opportunity to bring people to life from the dead.

The preaching of the gospel does not have anything to do with how long a believer has been in Christ. If a man gets saved today, he is well capable of preaching the gospel. The woman at Jacob's well in John 4 encountered the gospel. Immediately, she went into the town to preach about Jesus, telling the people of what Jesus has done. So, it doesn't matter if you just encountered the salvation of Christ, go ahead and preach the gospel that saved you. Don't be shy, but create the atmosphere for the power of God that engenders salvation reach out to people (Romans 1:16).

Keep winning daily.


Thank You Lord for empowering me to preach the gospel. I am excited to create the atmosphere where Your power can vitalise the lives of people. I am an agent of Your global change going on right now, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
