Ministering The Good News   Leave a comment

This is a great article on ministering the Gospel. When I started learning about God’s grace, the Lord said "you can catch more flies with honey". Jesus is our greatest example on how to draw people to Him. Look at how He did it. He offered healing, deliverance, their needs. His act caused them to follow Him and they listened to Him. We are not going to get people saved by beating them up about sin. We all know sin is wrong. But if you are constantly talking to a person about… sin, do you honestly think that’s going to cause them to stop? But if you TRULY want a person to turn and repent, tell them about how God loves them, right now. Heal their sickness, cast out those demons from them, give them a food if they are in need. That will draw them to Jesus more and better than beating them up about their sin. To be honest, people don’t need reminding about sin because they are aware of it themselves. They need to know they are loved. They need to know there’s a God that’s loves them and that gave healing for them already. They need to know there’s a Savior that loves them so much, He died for them. They need to know that God loves them so much, He has free gifts for them. Please read this article. It truly is a blessing.


MINISTER THE GOOD NEWS – Andrew Wommack Ministries

John 20:21 "Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you."

The dictionary states that to reconcile means to re-establish friendship between; to settle or resolve, as a dispute. The key to reconciliation is to effectively deal with the enmity, ill will, hatred, or hostility that caused the dispute, etc.

The enmity between man and God was sin. God took the initiative to remove this barrier through the means and agency of Jesus Christ, thus leaving man and God as friends once again.

We have received the ministry of reconciliation. That means we are in the ministry of reconciling people to God. Much of what people call the gospel today is actually alienating man from God. True, we need to show people their need for God to get them to receive His forgiveness and reconciliation, but the angry and bitter attitude some people have when confronting the sinner, is not correct.

Imputing people’s sins unto them was not the way God used Jesus to reconcile the world unto Himself. We should not focus on the problem of sin, but on the answer of God’s grace (Rom. 5:20).

When you read a newspaper, you read about things that have already happened. They are not reporting prophecy. They are reporting the news. So our real job as ministers of reconciliation is to announce the good NEWS, which is an accomplished fact – that sin has already been dealt with through the person of Christ. We should say, "Now we beseech you, be ye reconciled to God. Change your mind and believe the gospel so that you may partake of what has already been done on your behalf."
