I Am Not Ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ

OWP 2012 facebook profile 321 jpeg

A lot of people like the emotional stimulus of a preached Word as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t challenge their preconceived notions about faith and salvation; as long as it doesn’t require them to change too much or give up much.

But as soon as the Word of God corrects their belief system and demands them to surrender their way unto God’s Holy and Eternal way, they have a problem.

But in spite of the inherent tribulations that come with preaching and teaching God’s Word, I am solemnly charged, in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, with the task of preaching and teaching the Word of God in season and out of season. I am solemnly charged, to reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time has come when men and women do not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to justify themselves, have gathered to themselves teachers in accordance with their own desires that are pleasing to listen to but are without the Power of God. (2 Timothy 4:1-3 & 2 Timothy 3)

I challenge all those who have been called out, chosen and sent to share this declaration of commitment on their blog, website or social network as a symbol of unity in Christ Jesus.

KEEP LOOKING UP!

  1. INCLUSIVE SALVATION

    Who are those who are included in salvation? All men who believe and obey what the apostle Peter preached on the Day of Pentecost are saved. It does not make any difference what denominational name is written on the church building where you worship, if you obey the gospel preached by Peter, then, you are saved, you are a member of the Lord’s church, you are part of the church of Christ, you a member of the body of Christ, you are a Christian.

    What did Peter preach?
    1. Peter preached that Jesus was a miracle worker. (Acts 2:22)
    2. Peter preached that Jesus was resurrected from the dead by God the Father.(Acts 2:24-35)
    3. Peter preached that Jesus was both Lord and Christ.(Acts 2:36)
    When the three thousand believe Peter, they asked “What shall we do?”(Acts 2:37)
    4. Peter told them to repent and be baptized in order to have their sins forgiven.(Acts 2:38)

    This is the same message Jesus preached. (Mark 16:16 “He who believes and is baptized will be saved….)

    THE TERMS FOR PARDON ARE: Faith-John 3:16, Repentance-Acts 2:38, Confession-Romans 10:9-10, Baptism (immersion in water) 1 Peter 3:21

    All who meet the terms for pardon are saved regardless of the denominational name on the church building.
