“v5 For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; v6 Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth”:
The First Seed God Makes Available in the process of Converting a sinner to believe in Christ, is The Gospel. The preaching of the Gospel is so powerful to Save. Also, God expects of us all that after we have received The Gospel, we will go ahead to bear fruits and grow in it.
Paul expressed his joy upon knowing that the believers in Colossi were growing and bearing fruits of The Gospel they received. Beloved, for each of us who has received the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and the kingdom of God, God Expects us to bear fruits of The Gospel and contribute to The Growth of The Gospel.
You may be wondering; what is The Gospel? How does one bear fruits of The Gospel, and how does The Gospel Grow? The Gospel is simply summarized in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.”
The Gospel = The Gospel of Jesus Christ = The Good News
The Good News to you means you don’t have to be whatever bad you were before. You can make wrong decisions for a long time, but The Good News of The Gospel is that, every right decision you make is going to reverse the result of the wrong decisions you have made
To bear the fruit of the Gospel is live by Faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God, and also live with unconditional love as God Has demonstrated to us. The Fruit of the Gospel is Faith, hope and love. However, we contribute to the Growth of The Gospel by sharing It with others and supporting Its spread to all nations.
If you are excited by God Redeeming you, you will tell people about Christ – that’s how The Gospel is Preached Everything from God is to you & through you – this is how The Gospel is Spread. So, the devil is fighting the preaching of The Word of God, but The Gospel must be preached. However, satan has been attacking people who preach the Good News.
I want to inspire us all today. If truly we are born again and are Saved, God Expects us to bear the fruits of Gospel; Faith, hope, and love, and help spread The Word of God to the whole world. By our fruits, we shall be known. God help us all, Amen.
The must be preached. The poor needs to hear that it’s The Will of God to Prosper them. The answer to poverty is The Gospel being preached (to poor the poor) by somebody who his Anointed to preach The Gospel. The devil is against The Preachers of The Good News to the poor, but the poor needs to hear that The Will of God is to Prosper them. THE GOSPEL preached to the;
• blind = see
• broken-hearted = healed
• Bondage/captive = delivered
• lame = walk
• Dead man = raised
• Poor = rich
Please Grant me The Grace to effectively bear fruits of The Gospel. Grant me the courage to also Preach the Gospel. Bless me LORD,
in Jesus’ Name, Amen
