I AM NOT
ASHAMED OF THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST

I am not ashamed of the gospel of
Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth;
to the Jews first, and also to the Greek (Romans 1:16)

The word
“gospel” means “good news”. It’s not enough to be preaching a message about
God, if it’s not “good news” then it’s not gospel. Jesus told us to preach the
gospel, which is the good news about all He had done for mankind. Some people
get mad when they hear us preach good news to sinners; they would rather we
preach hell, sin, and condemnation. They believe that it’s not right to “water
down” the message! They want the person to whom they are preaching to realize
how terrible a sinner he is, but that’s really not necessary.

The Bible
says the goodness of God leads men to repentance (Romans 2:4), not the terror
of God. The gospel to the sinner is that eternal life is available to him from
God now and that he doesn’t have to continue to wallow in sin and guilt
anymore. The gospel to the sick person is that divine health is available to
him now, so he can walk out of sickness in Christ Jesus. The gospel to the poor
man is that prosperity is now available in Christ Jesus and that he has an
inheritance waiting for him. It’s not gospel to say that it’s okay to suffer on
earth so long as you die and make heaven.

So, the next
time you want to speak to someone about Jesus Christ, make sure you preach the
gospel: THE GOOD NEWS! Your message should gladden the heart of the hearer and
reveal God’s goodness, in spite of man’s sin and wickedness. That’s the message
that turns even the hardest heart unto God. That’s the message Apostle Paul
refers to as the power of God unto salvation (Romans 1:16).

CONFESSION

I am a minister of reconciliation, a
preacher of The Good News about Christ Jesus. My feet are shod today with this
Good News and my lips burst forth with it! As I share it, men and women are
turned from sin to righteousness, from sickness to health and from poverty to
prosperity, in the Name of Jesus Christ! Amen!
