"For the Gospel's Sake."

"And this I do for the gospel's sake..." I Corinthians 9:23

What are you willing to do for the gospel's sake?

There are missionaries who today are in foreign jails because they preached the gospel of Jesus Christ. There are those that are not even allowed to own a Bible, but do anyway, and get caught and tortured.
We on the other hand have the freedom to own a Bible and to tell others, yet most Christians are afraid of that people might think of they tell some one about Jesus.

For the gospel's sake we should be willing to be disliked by others, for the gospel's sake we should be willing to go through whatever it takes to tell just one person about the Lord.
I would never wish this on anyone, but would you be will to be in a hospital for the furtherance of the gospel? Would you be willing to leave your friends and loved ones behind to tell a lost and dying culture about the love of Christ?

What are you willing to do, for the gospel's sake?

I know this was short and it really is not that good, but I was reading this verse last night and it hit me like a ton of bricks! It really made me rethink somethings in my life. I pray that it was a help to someone.

I was directed to your post through the watchman. I enjoyed reading your post. May I not be afraid to share the gospel with others in 2007!

That is a good point, Kristina! Alot of us Christians think of no one but ourselves! If sharing the gospel means making us uncomfortable, we'll probably try to make a way out of it.

I don't know why you would say this was not that good. I think it is great. And even if no one else thought it was good or even great...it is what God gave you so it is great!! I think this will help those that read it. Just as it helped me!! Stay in God's Word and I look forward to what else He continues to give you. I love you!!

Kristina this is very good. It is a great reminder for what God has left us on this earth to do and that is to reach a lost and dying world. Keep up the posts.
