BE ABOUT THE GOSPEL. . . Is there a safer place in the midst of all of this than right in the middle of His will? Well, What is His will and what kind of Promises did Jesus give to those who would walk in His will. (Mark 16:15) Jesus gave His will to the disciples. . . “Go into all the world(even when people are sick) and preach the gospel to every creature.” Should we be preaching the gospel? Yes “He” your Lord said so. When should we go? NOW “GO” literally as you are going through life in the midst of a pandemic. Where should we go? “Into all the world”. What should we share? “preach the gospel”. Who should we tell? “Every creature”. Pretty simple, this is God’s will, especially while the world is facing the reality of it’s mortality. Tell and show them the “good news” in the midst of so much bad news. The Good news that God so loved the world(John 3:16), the ones that is perishing all around us tonight. SO what about this being safe thing. Well I cant say you or I wont be effected by this Virus that is spreading but I can say that Jesus gave special promises of protection to those who were about the business of the great commission(His will) even when it meant their was some danger. (Vs 17-18) – “These signs will follow those who believe, In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Its easy to become fearful and we should be wise and respectful during this time. BUT don’t forget that God’s protection is with those who are walking in His will to tell the world He loves them and desires that they would be in heaven with us one day. Preach the “GOOD NEWS” louder than they are preaching the bad news.
