Romans 15:19 In the power of signs and wonders, in the power of the Spirit; so that from Jerusalem and round about as far as Illyricum I have fully preached the gospel of Christ. 20 And thus I aspired to preach the gospel, not where Christ was already named, so that I would not build on another man’s foundation; 21 but as it is written,“They who had no news of Him shall see, and they who have not heard shall understand.”
The main thing I notice about most Christian, they most of the time stay within the space or area where he or she lives in. We are comfortable around people who look like, talk like, eat like & smell like me & you. But if we want Jesus to return & take His children to a better place, we have to preach the Gospel, the world needs to hear His gospel (good news);
Matthew 24:14 This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.
The Passage in Romans 15:19-21, is telling the church to not just preach within it’s neighborhood or to people who know the church is there, but refuse to go or hear it’s message. The Lord wants the gospel of Christ to go to people of the world, who have not heard the gospel & have no understanding of why they live & the true meaning of life, which is, we were all made to worship & love our Creator God. We the people of the church can tell others of the wonders, the Lord has provided for me & you. The signs are how the light of Jesus, shine cause we the church reflected His glory. A good church has outreach & provide for its local community, but an awesome church, helps spread gospel, all over God’s earth. We may not all be able to pack our bags & get our passports filled out. But we can help. the church of Christ, to the mission the Lord gave us to do. One way is by paying our tithe & offerings so that God’s church can be funded, some have bake sales, car washes, volunteer to clean the church so visitors will be comfortable in God’s house. One way is by studying & reading God’s word, so you can teach & answer questions from people you meet who may see the light of Jesus in you. You can very easily forward, this devotional or sermon some call it, to others you know. Being a church member means more than being wearing fancy clothes & knowing all the Bible verses, it’s about sharing the Bible verses you love & sharing the good news (gospels) with the whole world. Let’s get started, I want to hear the holy trumpet sound & see Jesus rip the sky & witness taking all God’s saints home & end this sinful world of deadly sins. Why don’t you join me & spread the gospel (good news) to people you don’t know. I will pray for you, the Spirit of God, move you to do His work. Amen!! God bless you all, remember Jesus is coming again.
