Preach The Gospel
“…Be not afraid, but speak, and hold not thy peace: For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city”
There’re millions of people in different countries around the world who have never heard the Gospel. This is mainly because, in many of these countries, the authorities have used the weapon of fear, persecution and intimidation to suppress and prevent the preaching of the Gospel. Acts 4:12 tells us, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” We must therefore continue to preach the Gospel without fear, knowing that there’s no alternative to salvation.
No amount of intimidation in this world should shake and prevent you from preaching the Gospel once your faith is firmly rooted in the Word. Our God is the God of the universe; He owns the whole world and has all power. He’s your defence; therefore, no power or authority in this world can hurt or harm you for preaching the Gospel.
Moses fearlessly confronted Pharaoh with God’s message, yet Pharaoh couldn’t kill him, even though he had the “political might” to have ordered Moses’ execution. Why couldn’t he? Moses was on a mission from the Lord, and his understanding of the importance of that mission, made him fearless. The Lord protects you as a soul winner. Recall what we read in our opening verse. The Lord is comforting you today with the same words, urging you on to remain unflinching in the propagation of the Gospel.
Don’t let the fear of man or of any government hold you back from believing and preaching the Gospel as you should. The Gospel must be taken to the unreached everywhere in the world. In achieving this, we must remain fearless, knowing that we’re functioning under the mandate of Him whose Name is greater than any institution, authority, rulership, or power.
Dear Father, I thank you for your Spirit who causes me to walk in your perfect will, and in the consciousness of my responsibility as a minister of reconciliation. I pray for many around the world today, living in regions with hostile legislation to the Gospel, that the dominion of your Spirit will be stirred in them to affirm your Word fearlessly, and in faith, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
