REPRESENT WHAT YOU PREACH – Matthew

All Christians Must Be Good Representative of God And What He Stands For

(Passage: Matthew 23)

As Christians, we mustn’t just be hearers of the word of God only, but we must also be the doers. We must do our best to present ourselves to God as the approved ones – the workers who have no need to be ashamed and handle the word of God rightly.

Jesus Christ scolded the Pharisees for being inconsistent with the scripture. They taught and enforced the scriptures on other people, but themselves acted contrarily.

Jesus knew the Pharisees’ actions and rebuked them. He said,

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers. Therefore you will receive greater condemnation.

“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves” (Matthew 23:13-15).

God Blesses His Children Who Represent And Promote His Kingdom

Christians are required to be true representatives of Jesus Christ, and not live in pretense. We are commanded to meet God’s standard as presented in the Bible. We are to preach and teach other people to comply with the Bible, and we must practice what we preach as well.

In addition, Christian leaders must not be hypocrites but be true ambassadors of Jesus Christ.

God reserves his benefits for people who love and serve him with all honesty in his kingdom. He will reward honest Christians with glorious crowns that last forever.

Pray For God’s Help To Represent Him Well

Dear God, please make me a true representative of Jesus Christ, who lived according to biblical standards. Help me, to be honest in my relationship with you!

Please don’t let me live a double-standard lifestyle. Let my “yea be yea and my nay be nay” so that you can be proud of me.

Help me to exercise genuine repentance whenever I fall into sin. Please let me be holy and keep my feet firm within your gate. Please continue to keep me worthy of your gift of eternal life in heaven!

For in the name of Jesus Christ, I have prayed. Amen.

SALVATION: THE SYMBOLISM OF JESUS’ DEATH – Luke

death

Dare To Know What Jesus’ Death Stands For

(Passage: Luke 24)

Jesus Christ explained the necessity of his suffering, death, and resurrection.  He said,

“Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

… And you are witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high” (Luke 24:46-49).

The death of Jesus was meant to open a pathway for sinners to receive the forgiveness of their sins to qualify for heaven.

Indeed, everyone is a sinner and in need of the salvation of Christ, as the Bible described,

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, but through Jesus Christ, whom God as an atoning sacrifice, we are saved from wrath.  He also wants us to walk in love, as he has loved us and given himself for us” (Romans 3:23)

Jesus’ Death Is Beneficial To All Everyone Who Believes

Jesus Christ died for sinners on the cross, and it was a “mission accomplished!” Christ unveiled the symbolic meaning of his death and resurrection to all people. His rare mission was meant to save the lost sinners and reinstate them into a goodly relationship with their Maker (God).

Christians Have A Stake In The Salvation Process of Others

Jesus Christ asked his disciples to ensure to spread the good news of his resurrection to the world (starting from their local community). Christians must preach the gospel to unbelievers so that they too can be saved (Luke 24:46-49.

A Christian should not agitate, neither should he be scared of preaching the gospel. We have the Holy Spirit of God dwelling in us, which empowers us to preach the fearless gospel throughout the world!

Although Christ suffered to perfect the work of salvation, he has made it freely available for all people. The Holy Spirit is free for us to benefit also. The Spirit of God will also empower us for effective gospel evangelization.

Anyone who hears the gospel and confesses his faith in Jesus Christ will be saved.

Pray Salvation Prayer To Escape Eternal Death!

Accept Jesus Christ As Your Lord To Escape Death

Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that you died and resurrected for the sake of saving my soul. Please do not let your death be in vain over my life. I want to be saved and eternally rejoice in your presence; therefore, I confess Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. I accept him as my personal Lord and Savior. Please baptize me with the Holy Spirit so that I can faithfully serve you unto the end. Thank you, Jesus Christ, for your saving grace! Amen.
