The gospel is the message of Christ, it is the good news of Salvation that is being preached, but the bible defined the gospel as the power of God unto Salvation. The gospel is the word of God, it is the message that God brought into the world, through the ministry of Jesus Christ. The gospel took off fully when Jesus Christ came into the earth; and the bible recorded that all through the life time of Jesus, all he did was to preach from town or village to another, ensuring many were saved to the glory of the father, and not only preaching, ensuring that there were signs and wonders, and also that many people believed his word, and then surrendered their lives to God.
The gospel that Jesus Christ preached was accompanied with signs and wonders, people he preached to were hungry, and then he was led by the spirit to demonstrate the power of God to then, so they would have faith in God, and he then fed five thousand people and they were fed with just five loaves of bread and two fishes. And so it was any time Jesus went to preach, he did not only preach the gospel, he also demonstrated the power of God, that is why God wants us today to preach the gospel to the unsaved, and He wat us to do it with passion because this was what Jesus Christ brought in to the world to free the unsaved.
The gospel of Christ should be the major job in the church today, Christians should be ready to preach the good news and ensure souls are being saved because that is what God values, preaching to the unsaved, and ensuring that they give their life to Him. He want to do this continually because that is where His heart is. It is our responsibility as Christians all around the world to preach the gospel, because the bible says in Mark 13 vs 10 and the gospel must first be published among all nations, so it is important that we carry the burden upon ourselves to preach the gospel everywhere, we have to take the gospel to the ends of the earth demonstrating the character of the spirit, because people love to see the manifestation of the power of God when they hear the gospel; and Jesus did all of these during his earthly ministry, he did so many miracles while preaching the gospel, all those that gladly receive the word of God from Peter, immediately joined in the things of God, and they started breaking bread, and not only partaking in the activities of the church, they also sold all their possessions and then brought the money for those that were in need. Only the power of God through the word can do this.
It is important that we preach the word as Gods children, because this is our primary task as believers, ensuring that the lost hear the word and are saved, this was what Peter did, and because of him, and the presence of the rest disciple, people never felt the ascension of Jesus, because what Jesus would have done, while he was in the earth, was being carried out by the disciples, and the people were glad that they still have those carrying the nature of Jesus Jesus Christ, and so it was , until the disciples were able to train other disciples to carry on with the work. The same should happen today, those that are anointed by God should also try as much as possible to anoint other people so they can preach the word of God, and also ensuring that the lost are saved to the glory of God.
Today; we have evangelists, Prophets and teachers of the word that take the gospel from one place to the other, people that are ready to ensure that the gospel is preached, that is why it is our job as believers to preach the gospel to everyone and everywhere because the bible says Matthew 24 vs 14 that the gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations and then the will come. The gospel must be preached to the whole earth that is why the bible says that the gospel must cover the earth as the water covers the sea. God’s word must spread everywhere, people both hidden and all must hear the gospel of the Jesus Christ, because that is why Jesus died on the cross, so there will be power in the word of God, and so many people will come to the full knowledge of the power and glory of God, and then the end will come. So preaching the word should be our major drive as Christians, not waiting to be told to do it, and not being paid to do it, because our pay comes from God, the creator of Heaven and earth, so going on and ensuring that the gospel gets to so many in different part of the world should be our driving force, and by so doing, we will be fulfilling scripture, and also ensuring that the ministry of the word grows from time to time.
