Modern days disciples
Modern days disciples of Jesus fail to preach the Gospel. Many of believers do not feel the need to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ either they feel inadequate or they are not equipped for the task.
The truth is preaching the Gospel is not an option but a command from God. According to Matthew 28:19-20, God says: ‘Go and make disciples of ALL nations….’
Then He went further to say: ‘baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’
At the end of that verse, He promised: ‘ I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’
Why do modern disciples today fail to preach?
The disciples today fail to connect with God. We go to churches and listen to the sermons. Our task every Sundays is to sit and listen to a feel good sermon. Then go home and get ready for our week ahead.
Unless we make the deliberate action to act, we do nothing. We listen to messages preach from our pastors.
The job of the pastors is to preach, and ours is to listen. The idea that because pastors are equipped to preach and teach, therefore, believers can sit back and let their pastors do the job.
Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ belongs to all disciples. Preaching the Gospel is different from Sunday sermons. Sharing the Good News of Jesus is to deliver the message of salvation to all.
The failure to understand what the Bible says, and the disconnection from God are the reasons why we as modern disciples fail God.
The lack of boldness is disbelief
If only we understand the authority that God gives us to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We as disciples have power and authority over the unclean spirits. That same power given to the New Testament disciples is the same today. Do we understand that?
Until we understand and digest it, believe thereof the power that is given, we need to act in faith and connect ourselves to God, do as He commands.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Then teach them to obey everything God commands.
