A Sacred Trust

As the followers of Christ, God gave us His Word as a sacred trust.  Psalm 147:19-20:  ” He declares His word to Jacob, His statutes and His judgments to Israel.  He has not dealt thus with any nation; And as for His judgments, they have not known them. Praise the Lord!” 

He sent His Spirit to lead us into all truth and teach us the things we need to know, as we compare one section of Scripture with another and listen for His “voice” to instruct, convict, and transform us. 1 Corinthians 2:12-13: ” Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.  These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy  Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 

And He has appointed to us the ministry of this Word for the purpose of making all the nations disciples. Matthew 28:18-20:  And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  Go therefore  and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

Romans 10: 13-15  For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”  How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?  And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace,  Who bring glad tidings of good things!”

No other people in the world has been entrusted with this glorious treasure!  If we fail to minister the Word as God Himself intended, how will the blessings of the Word and the Gospel of Forgiveness ever reach the billions and billions who are still living in the darkness of ignorance and unbelief?
Praying with a burden for the lost and prodigals of this world.  Now is the time for us to hold our banner high and proclaim the Truth of the Everlasting Gospel!  It’s not just an instruction to the pastor, preacher and teacher… it for all of us who know the JOY of forgiveness, the PEACE of everlasting life and the HOPE for everyday.  Have a blessed weekend…

There is joy, hope and peace in knowing the Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Everyday is a new day to share the the glorious Gospel message of grace and forgiveness; the blessings of hope; the Father God's eternal promises; and the importance of living daily in the will of God according to the Scriptures, especially now with the world in chaos and uncertainty. My life before I repented of all my sin, was washed clean by the blood of the Lamb of God-- Jesus Christ and was born again; was one of utter selfishness in every aspects of my life. I lived for ME and only me! Now I live for my Lord and soon coming King, rejoicing daily. I earnestly desire to share the message of the Gospel, encourage sisters/brothers in Christ by fervent prayer and studying the Holy Scriptures more each day.

  1. “How beautiful are the feet of those………!” No matter the size or the condition, “beautiful feet that preach the gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things” will never be forgotten by those who received it…and by the Lord. Thanks, Stephanie. Much encouragement with this post.
