Msg #2218 Becoming Gospel Truth

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

In the closing verses of Paul's first chapter to the Philippians he drives home that “for me to live is Christ, and for you to live is the gospel.” In verse 25 he is confident that he would hang around for their abundant rejoicing in Jesus Christ, and in verse 27 he exhorts, “Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ.” Noah Webster, in 1828, says your “conversation” is “your general course or manner, your general deportment, especially as it concerns your morals.” For your conversation to “become” the gospel of Christ, he says it will need to “pass from one state or condition to another by a change, by receiving new properties or qualities of character.”

In this day I will see someone and immediately talk about the weather. “Lord, help me to let that small talk become the gospel.” … Lord knows how. Tomorrow someone will want to talk about how bad it is getting in this world; “Lord, help that conversation to become the gospel.” … This nation will face the judgment of a Righteous Judge, so will you and I, but Praise the Lord we don't have to be under condemnation because of John 5:24! I'll talk about the war in Ukraine. “Lord, help me to bring up the wars and rumors of wars that proceed your 2nd coming, and how essential it is to personally know the Judge of all the Earth before you get here.”

This week someone will talk to me about Roe v. Wade and, Praise the Lord, I know someone who can forgive every sin of my life, and save from all condemnation, if one just ask him! “Lord, help me to turn every conversation into the gospel of Christ this week.” The Lord knows how.
