But he said, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.” Luke 4:43
During a major storm, such as a hurricane, there is often a message that has to be delivered to the people. Often that message is one of telling the people to get out or evacuate the area for their protection.
In order to get the message out, they will use every means possible. Radio, television, internet and phone calls will be used to proclaim the message. Often they will send in police officers to go to homes and neighborhoods to pass the message on. This is done because of its great importance.
Jesus said He had to go to other towns to preach the good news. It was His full purpose to pass on the good news.
The proclamation that Jesus had is still important to this day. There are still billions of people who have not heard the emergency warning. The warning message is that they are dying in sin and headed for eternal judgement and death.
No one has to live like this, but most do not know it. People have not heard that they can have eternal life. This is where the church and believers come in.
Every believer has to pick up the mission that Jesus had started. Each believer is to proclaim the good news to every one that they can reach. They need to go out to the new areas around them to let people know who have never heard the message.
People need to hear the message of life, but if no one is willing to go, they will not be able to hear it. Jesus started and ended His life on this earth with this mission.
At some point someone had brought you the message of the good news of the kingdom of God. You were given the opportunity to accept or reject it. Now that you have chosen to accept it, you need to pass it on to others.
Seek God to find new areas to pass that message on. Ask God to show you new people to talk with that need to hear about what God has for them.
Do not allow any one to live without a chance to hear about Jesus and what He has for them. Get the message out.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will proclaim the message of Jesus; that God will open doors for you to be His witness; and that God will build His kingdom through you around the world.
