Two Things You Need To Know (. . .Actually Four)

SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 2015

“And as you go, preach, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'”— Matthew 10:7

There are two “secret weapons” that God has given the church which are rarely used today.

They are not whine and complain. Nor are they protest and boycott.

The two secret weapons God has given us are pray and preach.

First we need to pray. Pray for our country, pray for friends and neighbors who have not yet put their faith in Christ. Pray that they will see their need for Jesus.

That brings us to the second word: preach. Having prayed for them, now you must preach to them. When I say preach, I do not mean you have to raise your voice, but simply to communicate the gospel to them.

One final set of two: come and go.

These two words in the Bible show us what our focus as Christians should be. First we come to Christ and receive His forgiveness (see Revelation 22:17), then we are to go into all the world with the message of the gospel.

Pray and preach.

Come and go.

Those are your marching orders from Jesus Himself.
