Last week I wrote that the Gospel is everything.
However often I feel people unintentionally limit the Gospel and by doing so they try and limit God. Which of course is impossible but still this needs addressing.
The Gospel isn’t just about the end, the whole story matters.
Everything Jesus taught us matters. He told us to serve people, He told us to follow the narrow path. We have to pray for people, take care of the needy, look over the sick, we have to seek righteousness and go through sanctification. I’m just scratching the surface here on what Jesus taught us.
Salvation is the most important aspect however that is not the end of a person’s story.
If you lead a homeless person to salvation, they’re still homeless. The saved drug addict is still a drug addict. The abused are still abused. We must help them after they’re saved.
Often people come to salvation while being helped. Sometimes people aren’t opened to the Gospel because of their situation, help them first. Worst case scenario you did the work of the Kingdom and planted a seed along the way.
If you disagree with me, imagine if you and your children were starving and someone came to you to talk about the Gospel would you honestly want to hear it? Or would you be more focused on getting your family fed?
There is no set order here, assess the situation, use discernment and act.
Do everything to spread the Gospel.
Have a Blessed Week,
