Evangelism: Giving the Kingdom Away!
Luke 10:1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. 2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: 9 And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.
Matt 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
Luke 12:30 For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need them. 31 Instead, seek his kingdom, and these things will be added to you.
32 “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
Rom 14:17 For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
When we have a fresh perspective that the Great Commission is fulfilled when we begin to give the Kingdom away, it transforms how we evangelise and disciple people and nations!
The Key lies in giving away the Kingdom that people can taste and see that the Lord of the Kingdom, Jesus Christ is good! What does it take for us to manifest and release the Kingdom to others? We have to go and proclaim the good news of the Kingdom so that they will experience the goodness of our Father! God’s goodness is experienced most acutely when the Kingdom is Good News to them! If they are sick, healed! If they are unclean, cleansed! If they are dead, raised! if they are demon possessed, delivered! If they are in bondage of any kind, set free! That is Good news, demonstrated through giving the Kingdom away which is manifested in righteousness, peace and joy of the Holy Spirit. Give the Kingdom away! Amen.
