The Madness of the Gospel

By   •   September 16   •   Topics: ,

One of the great needs in the church today is for every Christian to become enthusiastic about his faith in Jesus Christ. This is the essence of vital spiritual experience. The apostles had been with Christ, and they could not help but testify to that which they had seen and heard. Every Christian should become an ambassador of Christ with the splendid abandon of Francis of Assisi. Every Christian should be so intoxicated with Christ and so filled with holy fervor that nothing could ever quench his ardor. The Gospel that Paul preached seemed madness to the world of his day. Let us have this madness! Let us capture some of the magnificent obsession that these early Christians had! Let us go forth as men and women filled with the Spirit of God!

Prayer for the day

Create in me, Lord, the abandonment to reach out unreservedly with the message of Your love.

  1. Samuel says:

    Modern life has led us to deviate from the teaching of the first apostles. We all need this madness so we won’t miss it with God.

  2. Gerry says:

    As a believer in Christ when I encounter unbelievers it is my responsibility to share the great truths that I know with them. In the hope that they will believe in Jesus also.

  3. Rick Wilson says:

    “Every word of YHWH God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. Do not add to His words, lest He rebuke you, and you be found a liar. What is crooked cannot be made straight, and what is lacking cannot be numbered.”

  4. Alexis says:

    Bonnie Leech, I thank our LORD for your life today! To our great God be all the glory and praise! Psalm 47:1-2: God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
    Therefore we will not fear, thought the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.
    I am so thankful for every spiritual and physical life God has saved! Blessings and prayer for you! 🙂
