WORD FOCUS: THE MESSAGE THE WORLD NEEDS TO HEAR
TEXT: Mark 16:15-20 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he….”
If I may ask you what the mission of the church is–how would you answer? Although the church accomplishes many tasks, its only message to the world is the gospel of Christ. Everything else we do is merely an extension of that primary goal. The gospel we offer the lost is superior to every worldly philosophy. Never outdated or in need of correction, it is always sufficient to meet humanity’s greatest need: reconciliation with the Creator- the Lamb of the world Who taketh the sins of the world Although the message is always the same, God’s doctrines and principles of making it known are many–including the spoken Word, music, printed material, and electronic media.
Though all these avenues of communication require the individual involvement of God’s people. It is every Christian’s responsibility to use his or her spiritual gifts, talents, and abilities to help fulfil the Great Commission. Some Christians think that this role is given only to pastors, missionaries, or other people with an “up-front ministry.” Simply, all of us have the responsibility to be involved in whatever way we are able and in whatever opportunity God gives us. Not everybody is called to go abroad as a missionary, but we all can give, pray, and tell friends and family member what the Lord has done for us.
When you’re truly committed to getting the gospel out, God will reveal what work He is calling you to do. He has a place for every one of us–nobody is insignificant or unusable. The limiting factor is not the Lord’s ability to use us but our availability to His call. Beloved, have you been with or encountered Jesus? In the Name of Jesus Christ power is committed to preachers; so therefore we are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power that must be released by God when we take the gospel message to the world; how shall they hear without a preacher? Study these Scriptures; Rom. 10:14-15, 1:16, 1Cor 2:3-4)
