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? Romans 10:14
Paul was preaching to the Roman believers in the above verse. He was asking them how Israel was going to get saved if no one shared the good news that Jesus was the long-awaited Messiah with them. He encouraged them by saying “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, Who bring glad tidings of good things!” Romans 10:15
Jesus’ words in Mark 16:15 are called the “Great Commission” for just before He ascended into heaven He commanded His disciples to go and preach the gospel to everyone.
And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15
We believers are disciples of Jesus are we not? We are His followers, and so we need to be preaching the gospel to everyone, just as Jesus commanded. Therefore, we need to pray for wisdom, strength and steadfastness. We need to prepare ourselves by reading the word, and memorizing the word so we will know what to say and when. We need to be firm in our faith, so we can share what we believe and be able to have an answer for all who might question us. We need to pray that God will give us opportunities to share His truth will those we meet in our corner of the world.
I really want to do Your will. I want to obey Jesus’ words and go into my corner of the world and preach the gospel, so please provide opportunities for me daily to do so and then give me the wisdom on how to share the truth in love with those I meet. I pray for wisdom and strength. I pray that my faith will not fail. I pray for Your guidance God in all I say and do. Give me boldness to preach the gospel so that those who are lost will hear, believe and be saved. I want to be a witness of Your saving grace and love. Thank You God.
In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
