Mark 1:15 Devotional

ďThe time promised by God has come at last, he announced. The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!Ē
Mark 1:15 (NLT)
Iíve heard the Gospel summed up this way, ďJesus lived; Jesus died; Jesus lived. You die; you live; you donít die anymore.Ē Thatís the simplest Iíve heard it put. Sure, thereís a lot more to it, but thatís the Gospel in a nutshell. But, for many, thatís enough. Unfortunately, the above way doesnít show the beauty and the power of the Gospel when taken as a whole. It doesnít show how you die, live, and never die again, or why you would even want to.
It is important that we know the whole Gospel inside and out. If the person we are trying to convince that Jesus should be their Savior hears or sees any kind of confusion in what we say, or how we express ourselves through our body language, they may not believe us because they may think that we donít really believe it ourselves. The only way to tell the Gospel with any kind of passion or zeal is to know what we are talking about. Itís the same way with the gifts that God has given us through His Spirit; God expects us to know our gifts to the fullness of the abilities that gift contains; He expects us to know these gifts in every way possible, inside and out. Itís the same with the Gospel Ė we must know it to the fullness of the abilities God has given us to proclaim it.
You canít tell someone about repentance if you have never studied the subject for yourself. If you donít know the difference between repentance and testing then how can you safely and confidently tell others what each one means and how to apply them to their lives? When we get saved, God expects us at some time in our lives to know His word backwards and forwards, so that we can confidently tell others about this Jesus we love. Jesus planted the seed through His Holy Spirit at salvation. As Paul proclaimed in 2 Timothy 2:15, we must water that seed by studying the word, not only so we can be approved by God, but so by that approval we can be used to change millions of lives in the lifetime God has given us to serve the unsaved He places in front of us so we may tell them about His Son.
