Preaching of the gospel is a routine that is old as the existence of Christianity, and it’s undoubtedly the responsibility of every believer. However, you would be surprised that a larger percentage of believers still undermine the preaching of the gospel of Christ. It either they don’t are shy away from facing other to preach the Word or practically lack the evidence to prove to others that Christ can change their peoples’’ lives for the better. However, we need to know that the lack of compelling awareness can prevent people from seeing the importance of spreading the gospel and also accepting it. • Christ commands believers to preach the gospel:
A fact about believers is that we have the desire to be like Christ, and this includes acting talking, thinking and doing exploits like Him. More importantly, Christ which we desire to be like happens to be a die-hard gospel preacher. He dedicated His entire time on earth to sharing and showing the benefits of salvation. So, in the bid to carry on the good work of Christ, our saviour, we must also preach His gospel as commanded by him in Matthew 28: 18- 20 ….Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.” • Preaching the Gospel liberates:
Have you ever thought of the reason why awareness of the gospel is consistently on the increase? The answer is simple; preaching the gospel liberates people from the influence of the wicked ruler of this world (Satan). Remember, John 10: 10says “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. However, we have assurance in the latter part of the verse that Jesus has come to give life: ..” I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” You also need to know that faith comes by hearing the word of God Roman 10:17, therefore spreading the gospel of Christ becomes a vital way of letting people see the numerous benefits embedded in accepting Christ as their Lord and saviour.• Acceptance of the gospel of Christ makes the world a better place:
This world is filled up with diverse chaos caused by people. And to be sincere, most of these adverse situation experienced are due to greed and self-centeredness to mention a few. This is why you see people intentionally plotting the downfall of themselves and the government of nations enslaving the people they are meant to protect. Fortunately, the increasing awareness of the gospel of Christ will gradually influence people to deal with others in love as shown by Christ.
Having known that spreading the gospel liberate people from suffering and negativity of life, we need to understand that numerous benefits are embedded in the preaching of the gospel. This is why Joshua 1:8 among others verse of the scriptures says ”This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
But come to think of this, some believers do share the gospel but are sometimes discouraged due to people not yielding to their preaching. In this case, you need notworry as you need the assistance of God to make the preaching of the gospel a productive endeavour. Remember, John 6:44, says no one shall come to Christ expect the father draw them. So, this is the reason why you need to take your time and seek necessary assistance and guide form the creator of heaven and earth regarding your preaching routine; and you shall productively lead people to Christ. And above all, know that you can do all things through Christ that strengthens you. So, by taking that bold step of faith, coupled with the backing of the Trinity, preaching of the gospel will undoubtedly become like breathing to you.
