February 23 Redemption and salvation

One of the most famous quotes that have kept Christians from proclaiming the gospel came from a Catholic monk, St Francis of Assisi. He said, “Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.”

Francis might have been a compassionate man (patron saint of birds, animals and the environment), but he negatively impacted the preaching of the Gospel for almost 800 years.

Even today, there are many who suggest that it is more important to “preach the Gospel” with their life rather than by their lips.”

But this is NOT Biblical, but worse, it is contrary to the Bible.

Romans 10:14c

And how shall they hear without a preacher?

Of course our lives need to reflect our life transforming faith but faith doesn’t come from SEEING the message, but HEARING the message.

PRAY ISRAEL WILL HEAR AND RESPOND TO THE GOSPEL MESSAGE.
