WHAT DO YOU PREACH?
(Preach God’s Love And Righteousness)
TO THE BIBLE
Romans 1:16-17 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.””
“Gospel” means “good news,” and that’s what Jesus sent us to preach and teach. He said, “…Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). It’s not enough that you’re preaching a message about Jesus Christ; the message must be about His liquid love, the remission of sin that He made possible, and His gift of righteousness to everyone who believes. Don’t preach judgment or condemnation; preach His love and righteousness.
Some don’t like it when we preach righteousness and the love of Christ to sinners. What they don’t realise is that righteousness is actually a gift to the sinner, and not essentially to the Christian, because the Christian is born righteous. The sinner, upon hearing and believing the message of the Gospel, receives eternal life, which comes packaged with the gift of righteousness. When we preach righteousness, people embrace righteousness, and once they do, they start living right.
That’s because righteousness is a nature; it’s the nature of God that’s imparted to the spirit of the one who’s born again, granting him the ability to live right. Right living is a product of righteousness. No one can live right who isn’t first made righteous; and only God gives righteousness; it’s not something you obtain by your own good works.
This is why we preach the Gospel, for only through the Gospel is the righteousness of God unveiled. If we don’t preach the true Gospel, people will never understand righteousness, and that would defeat the purpose for which Christ came to the world. He came to make us sons and daughters of God. He came to make sinners righteous. He came to make us one with the Father, and have His life and nature of righteousness. Hallelujah!

Thank you, Father, for your liquid love so lavishly poured out on all, the remission of sin made possible by the sacrifice of Jesus, and the gift of righteousness to everyone who believes. Your righteousness is embraced as many hear and receive the Gospel all around the world. Many are saved, healed, and delivered, and darkness is dispelled, to the glory and praise of your Name. Hallelujah!
