True messengers of God don’t seek the glory, fame or fortune, because it’s not their story and they can’t save, heal or deliver anyone without Jesus Christ. They are just vessels or messengers, God uses to manifest His presence, His power, and His love for His people. Some preach out of jealousy, some out of rivalry, some out of greed and the monetary benefits that goes with it; remember God is watching.
However, true messengers of God be it apostles, pastors, preachers, teachers or evangelists always preach out of a pure heart, with pure motives and concern for other people’s soul (Philippians 1:15). A true messenger should have a heart and mind like Luke 4:18, which says, “The spirit of the Lord is upon me; because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken – hearted, to preach deliverance to the captive and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, and to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Jesus commissioned us in Mark 16:15 to ,”Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature,” not some watered down message on prosperity; because prosperity can’t save you. Nor to be entertained by people, show me in the Bible where Jesus was entertaining the crowd, He fed them both physical and spiritual food, Jesus did not compete with anyone. His main purpose and mission was to save souls for the kingdom. Is that what you are doing, it does not matter if you are a pastor, elder, or minister your duty is to save souls for the kingdom, tell people how to get out of darkness, and operate in Gods light.
If you don’t know God or His beloved son Jesus Christ, then you are going to perish forever, John 3 : 16-17 confirms this, so if you want to know God you must go through His son (Jesus Christ). John 14 :6 tells us, that Jesus is the only way, so go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, and follow the instructions.
All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go directly to God for inspiring me to write His messages.
