Woe is Me… If I preach Not
1. I preach the gospel because I gave him my heart
was ignorant when I came to Christ as a ten years old boy. All I knew
was that I gave him my heart, If he has that he has me. My mission grew
in me. I discovered thats what God wants one’s Heart.
2. I Preach the gospel lest I myself become a reprobate
Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.
Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye
be reprobates? (2 Corinthians 13:5)
out your salvation with fear and trembling. I want to keep saved. He who
looks back is not fit for the kingdom of God. I dont want to look back.
I dont want to become complacent, I gave my life to preach. If I’ve
failed and I have then my failure, stigma or past is my cross, your’s
too! Woe is me if I preach without having proof that I can carry a
3. I preach the gospel because truth has fallen in the streets
has fallen in the streets. (Isaiah 59:14)
If my neighbour dont know it and my friend
lives without it then its fallen in the street. It’s time for the
crowds to hear it. I’m not talking of slamming people I’m talking of
having compassion to connect in real ways where we are influencial as
well as preachy, compassionate as well as anointed, convincing as well
New days require a new approach online, new
people skills, new social skills. We can’t expect to do better than
pre-internet days if we dont skillfully adapt by adding new social
skills to our portfolio. We have to ask, are we growable?
4. I preach the gospel to combat complacency and comfort.
Woe to them that at ease in Zion (Amos 6:1).
Give not sleep to thine eyes nor slumber to thine eyelids (Proverbs 6:4).
If we allow the world and business to force us into complacency then
what will become of us? What will become of our sons and grandsons,
daughters and grandaughters. What are we building for them that they can
“You are God’s Investment into your Generation”
Will they struggle like us or can we built them a platform to
declare the word with greater success, a larger audience a bigger world!
genEration is too comfortable. Thats what the world offers,
comfortability. Can you buck the trend and do business? Preaching is
not comfortable. Things that altar a mans destiny and eternal state
cannot be comfortable, Destiny and comfortabiltiy make poor partners.
Woe is me if I preach not the gospel!
is uncomfortable thats why God attached it to the resurrection. Its the
sort of stuff that makes dead men come alive. Most of us preachers wont
be able to leave our kids much but what we can leave them is
conviction, fight and a hard act to follow.
How about You?
5. I preach the gospel lest my ease become a disease and my slothfulness my ruin
What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel (1 Corinthians 9:18).
gospel is the power of God unto salvation. If we want to see God we
have to preach truth. There is power in truth. There is a compelling in
the spirit to preach truth to our generation. The spirit of ease has
crept into our lifestyle. Sure we can use Facebook and Twitter but we
are at ease there! Are we focused to the point of abandonment, sold out
in pursuing something bigger than us? Are we climbing walls we have
feared? Are we breaking barriers between them and us? Are we connecting
to those we have previously avoided?
“Your Ministry Growth online is governed by your
ability to network socially and add value continually to everyday folks
who want to win in life and ministry.”
You are I once were pagans. What’s so holy about us that we
can’t get in the mud and get down with others.
Do we favour the comfort zone for
the mission zone?
Are we going to stick in the crowd we know the
folks that wont challenge our views or are we going to get Christ-like
and venture into danger to see God work. That way we will discover that
uncomfortability builds bigness in a man, the God kind of bigness.
“What legacy will we leave? Quit defending history.
Make history! then your kids after you will have something to talk about
when you’re dead and gone.”
and organisations have built walls out of fear, we must build bridges
out of faith, a new faith that comes from a global can-do-ness.
Global is the not so new local if youre online you’re already doing missions.
excuse evangelism this is our Can Do Must Do time.
Your are too
big to do the small stuff and have to much God not to do the preaching
stuff! Get over it preaching was created for you.
Woe is unto me If I preach not the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 9:16 ).
