Urgent: Proclaim the Kingdom of God

August 26, 2013 7 Comments

Summoning the Twelve, He gave them power and authority over all the demons; and power to heal diseases.  Then He sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.  – Luke 9:1-2

Sadly the church and as individuals we have taken this scripture too lightly. It is so easy to read it without living it out.

 What could be more important for the church than to proclaim the kingdom of God? (Tweet This)

 He has given us authority over demons and the power to heal the sick. Yet we often lack the compassion and doubt the ability to live it out. 

  •  We must grow in our compassion for the world. It must become a compelling drive that guides and dictates the actions of our daily lives. 
  •  We must push back the doubt and take hold of the authority of the Word of God. It must be our confession despite what we may see with our natural eyes. (Tweet This)
  •  Thousands of people around us are dying not knowing the saving grace of Jesus Christ. We must live with an urgency to deliver the demon possessed, heal the sick and to proclaim the kingdom of God wherever we are. 

Let’s live with an urgency to proclaim the kingdom of God! (Tweet This)

Lord Jesus create in us a compassion for the world. Stir in us an urgency and a passion to proclaim your kingdom. Let the church rise up in the same authority and power you gave the Twelve so we can move forward with an urgent boldness to proclaim your Kingdom. – Amen

Your voice is important; I would love to hear from you.

What does it mean to you to, “Proclaim the Kingdom of God?”
