“And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!”
Romans 10:15 (KJV)
Beloved Brethren, There are always two sides to life, just like two sides of a coin, good and evil, peace and trouble, love and hatred, one announces the existence of the other. Good news also suggests the existence of bad news.
The bad news is, we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We were sinners doomed for hell. We are aliens to the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenant of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world. We cannot help ourselves because all our righteousness is like filthy rags before the Lord.
But the bible says, “God commended His love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” That is good news! Christ paid the price for our sins while we were yet sinners. This is the message of the gospel; peace has been restored between God and man. Sinners can now become saints; the sons of men can be called the sons of God.
God in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their sins against them. But the devil is doing all that he could, to keep everyone from the knowledge of this truth. If people are ignorant of God’s love and provision for their salvation, they will remain slave to sin and bound to the devil’s deception.
We need to be deliberate in sharing the gospel with our friends, families, loved ones and neighbors. God hates sins, but He loves sinners, and He has made atonement for our sins through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ.
The good news is, when a sinner turns and accepts God’s love and provision for his sin; he will be forgiven. But how will they turn; except they hear the gospel? God is depending on you, to share the truth with others. Will you do that today?
Prayer Starter Father, bring along my path, someone that You are ready to save today, and use me, to share the gospel with him, in Jesus’ name.
