Preaching the KingdomBy Rev. John Cortright on 09/18/2016
Mark 1:14-15; Luke 4:43; Matthew 10:7
Jesus preached the Kingdom of God and instructed his disciples to do the same.
After his resurrection, he continued to preach the Kingdom of God.
Throughout the book of Acts, the disciples continued preaching the Kingdom of God. Paul was committed to preaching the gospel.
The book of Acts closes out with Paul preaching the Kingdom of God.
Paul was not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God for salvation. The gospel message of the Kingdom itself is powerful.
2 Corinthians 2:14-17 We are a fragrance of Christ. We speak in sincerity.
2 Corinthians 4:1-5 We are not to handle the Word of God with craftiness, nor water down the truth. The gospel has been hidden by the god of this age. We need to preach it plainly as it is presented in Scripture. It’s not old, outdated, behind-the-times news. It is the “good news” that transcends generations as well as cultural and political correctness.
2 Corinthians 5:18-20 He has given us the ministry of reconciliation, and He’s committed to us the word of reconciliation. We are ambassadors for the Messiah!!!
1 Corinthians 9:14-22 Paul is the example in the church of commitment to preaching the gospel. It was committed to his trust, and he became a slave of the message to reach all people.
1 Corinthians 10:32-33; 11:1 We are to be imitators of Paul. How did Paul preach the gospel?
Acts 13:14-48 Paul preaching to the Jews
Acts 17:15-34 Paul preaching to Gentiles the people of Athens
1 Corinthians 1:18-24 It may seem foolish that preaching the message brings salvation, but for those who are called it is the power of God!
