Sent To Preach The Kingdom
VERSE OF THE DAY: ~Luke 9:1-6 “Then He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons, and to cure diseases. He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. And He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey, neither staffs nor bag nor bread nor money; and do not have two tunics apiece. Whatever house you enter, stay there, and from there depart. And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet as a testimony against them.” So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere.”
Here we have Christ’s universal plan for evangelism! He gives us power and authority over the demonic forces of darkness and to heal all diseases. He sends us out to preach the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick. This is by far the most fruitful and effective way of ministering the gospel that I have ever done. Other places in scripture Jesus says to declare peace upon a house (city) as you enter it. He says that not everyone will receive you but as I go in the love of God with the compassion of Christ to minister to and heal those I come in contact with I find the greatest receptivity of any other method I have tried. People can sense when you care about them and whether you are sincere in your faith.
It is exciting and faith lifting to see God’s power show up and touch people, especially when someone is in pain and God removes that pain right in front your eyes. Jesus is perfect theology and He healed everywhere He went, ministering to those who needed it. There is not one person in the Bible that contacted Jesus for healing and did not get healed. Seek Him in the secret place, meet with Him in prayer and allow Him to lead and guide you into the fullness of His gospel. You will not regret it.
PRAYER: “Lord I thank You for empowering and giving us this authority that we read about today, that we may lay hands on and pray for the sick and afflicted and see them healed and made free. I speak to whatever ailments I may be present and I command them to leave my body now and to be healed by the power of Jesus’ name. All pain must go now for I am a child of the living God and sickness or malady has no legal place in me. Amen.”
VERSE FOR FEARLESS LIVING! ~ 1 John 4:18 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”
