June 3 – Base Evangelism on God’s Principles

Daily Bible Life

Gospel ministers are to follow biblical principles and properly lead other people. Gospel ministers must motivate all people to serve God faithfully. A gospel minister who fails to adequately occupy his position and serve God well will not go scot-free. God emphasized through Ezekiel’s prophecy that he would punish unfaithful servants. Ezekiel prophesied, “When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul” (Ezekiel 33:8-9).

 

Lesson:

Gospel ministers are held in high standards by God. They are endowed with the authority to bind and loose in all situations. Jesus stated that his servants would do the impossibilities for the sake of his glory. However, God’s servants have a high responsibility that accompanies their portfolio. They have a huge price to pay for their honor. God’s servants who are held with high honor are also, held with higher standards of accountability. Jehovah oversees their activities. A servant of God who disobeys God will pay a heavy punishment for his action.

God’s servants are expected to fear God. They must not succumb to influences that can make them compromise their standards. The servants of God must preach the undiluted word of God to promote God’s kingdom. For example, no servant of God is expected to submit to a politician. Also, no gospel minister should be fondly associated with a prostitute. In addition, no servant of God is allowed to abuse his/her authority. He must deal with everyone fairly.

More importantly, every servant of God is commissioned to preach a specific area of the undiluted word of God. He must speak God’s truth, without any fear of reprise.

It is important for a gospel minister to uphold the fundamental principles that the Bible promotes! Jehovah, who is the Master of all people has reserved some prestigious honor for his faithful servants. He will bless and honor them in this life, and the one to

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please help your servants to serve you in righteousness. Give them the grace to serve you faithfully. Assist your servants to lead by example, and empower them to preach the irresistible gospel. Let your servants be fearless in preaching your word! Give them the courage to promote biblical standards boldly. Please prosper your servants in their personal lives also. Help them to overcome whatever trial and temptation they may face. Please help your servants to live triumphantly on earth and make it to your eternal kingdom! For in the name of Jesus Christ, I make my requests. Amen.
