You are just a delivery man
John 5:24 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
Whenever we are preaching God's Word to others we should have the same attitude as Jesus did. When Jesus as man, gave the Word He considered Himself just a delivery man, He spoke the Words His father had sent Him to speak.
When we go to preach or share the Word of God, we should remember that we are representing the Kingdom of God. We speak on behalf of Him so we should not speak for ourselves. For, we have been crucified with Jesus Christ on the cross and Christ lives in us, so it is not we who should speak but it should be Christ who speaks through us.
When we do this we see the effects of every word that come out of our mouth. These words will not be our words but God's Word, which is living and active. Also when people insult or try to hurt us, we will not get affected for we are not there in the picture.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, make me like Jesus. Bring it into my understanding that I am on a mission and I represent You, it is your Spirit that should work through me and only that will change people and situations. I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
