Theme: The Relevant Church
Topic: Carriers of the Gospel
Acts 8:6, 8
6 And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did.
8 And there was great joy in that city.
Many parts of the world are under the control of satanic agents and forces of darkness. Military personnel and scientific means cannot dislodge these forces. We have the power to disperse fear and release joy into the atmosphere. Many communities resist the Gospel and preachers because they don’t know the blessings and peace the Gospel brings. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is glad tidings. It is not bad news. The carriers of the Gospel have beautiful feet and not destructive feet (Romans 10:15-18).
Phillip the Evangelist carried the blessings of the Gospel to Samaria. He broke the cloud of darkness over the land of Samaria and freed the people from the fear Simon the Sorcerer had put in them. The people received the Gospel and its attendant breakthrough of freedom
and joy. The apostle Paul said the Church is blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. We were chosen before the foundation of the world to bless the world and saturate it with holiness and love (Ephesians 1:3-4).
Preachers of the Gospel go everywhere with glad tidings because they know the power of the Gospel. They are aware that they are the carriers of blessings. Grace and peace are multiplied to the Body of Christ to make it the storehouse of God’s power and blessings. God has called us to glory and virtue so the world can receive the impartation of light and glory (2 Peter 1:2-4).
1. Pray that God will make you a dedicated carrier of the Gospel.
2. Pray and ask God to make you a conduit of peace and joy to the world.
