TOPIC: THE BILLBOARD OF THE GOSPEL
TEXT: ROMANS 1:16-17
The gospel is the power of God unto salvation. Can you truly attest to this? We are the billboard of the gospel that the world reads (see 2 Cor. 3:2). Ponder a little, what are some of the factors that can induce discomfort, shame or reservations towards preaching the gospel? Consider our lifestyles, are there areas of compromise? Do we have the correct attitudes to time, money, fellow Christians and our unbelieving neighbours?
The ABCD of godliness may be helpful.
A - Abide in Christ (John 15:4).
B - Be submissive to God's word (Rom. 6: 13).
C - Crave for the word and fellowship (1 Pet. 2:2, Heb. 10:25).
D - Do not copy the world (Rom. 12:1-2)
Note Jesus' command in Luke 9:23. Victory can only be possible if I anchor my faith in Christ.
Are you ready to yield yourself so that the power of the Gospel can manifest through you?
Lord, help me to be true to the course of the cross, in Jesus name, Amen.
