THE GREAT PUBLISHERS
TEXT: PSALM 68:7-11
MEMORY VERSE: “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it” (PSALM 68:11).
A Publisher publishes books, newspapers or magazines. The word ‘publishing’ is synonymous to the word ‘broadcasting’. The good news has been given by the Lord Jesus Christ to believers to publish His love to all. God is not willing that anyone should perish. So, He gave His life-changing word for the transformation of souls.
Carly F. H. Henry says “The gospel can only be good news if it gets there on time.” Yes, the good news cannot fulfill its purpose if it is published late. We must preach with a sense of urgency just as “Philip ran” and preached Jesus unto the Ethiopian Eunuch (Matthew 9:36; Acts 8:30, 35).
Child of God, you may not have received a call to become a preacher or a missionary, but every believer is a preacher and missionary. We all have the word, and wherever we are – home country or foreign country, we must preach. A foreign missionary may not have as much preaching opportunities as a student with many students around him or her. At every opportunity, publish the word.
QUOTE: Preach with a sense of urgency.
CHALLENGE: Proclaim the God you claim to know and His saving power.
PRAYER: Oh God, give me souls as I publish Your word to sinners.
