RECEIVING THE GOSPEL

Audio Version/YBP Audio Bible: http://bit.ly/28SPGZ6

1 Corinthians 15:1[KJV]
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand


The work of Salvation is done through the Holy Spirit from start to finish. Our primary duty in this process as believers is to preach the gospel. We have very little control over whether the hearer receives our message or not. Of course, we can make ourselves more acceptable and make our message more presentable. Just as the Holy Spirit works through the believer to preach, He works in the unbeliever to receive.

Receiving the gospel begins from hearing. When a believer attempts to preach the gospel, he should at least, make the unbeliever hear (See Rom 10:14). The decision to listen and receive is not in the hand of the preacher but the hearer. See how the Lord Himself puts it in Mat 10:14 '... whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet'. What the preacher can do is to pray that the Holy Spirit does His work in them so they can receive the gospel.

To receive the gospel is to believe that Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, is Savior and Lord. (See John1:12).

Go into today with the decision to preach the gospel to someone. Pray for that person in advance.

Prayer: Lord, open the hearts of the unsaved all over the world to the gospel of Your salvation. Amen.
