The Apostle John wrote, "We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies in wickedness (1 Jn 5.19)." "That which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ (1 Jn 1.3).
By declaring the gospel of Jesus Christ we bring others over to the good side, but until then they lie in darkness and there is no fellowship with them. Have you noticed people in the world? Nobody talks to each other or has fellowship. Not so with Wipha and I. The first thing I tell another before conversing with them is, "Did you hear the good news?" "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose again the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." This allows them to believe on Christ and are born into the family of God. The barrier comes down then we have fellowship with them. I call it FAMILYSHIP (Please see FAMILYSHIP on www.preach-the-gospel.org). This is truly a miracle.
By declaring the things the Apostle John saw (Christ's death burial and ressurection) in person with our mouth to another we get the same results as he did, bringing others into fellowship with us (1 Jn 1.3 & 5.1). The Apostle Paul wrote: "I have begotten you through the gospel (1 Cor 4.15)." and "I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believes (Rom 1.16)."
It is so simple to preach the gospel a child can do it. Just ask another if they have heard the good news (Gospel means good news.) and tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose on the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." This gospel that the Apostle Paul himself received and preached saves every one that believes when we tell it to them in person with our mouth as he did (Rom 1.16, 1 Cor 1.21, Eph 6.19-20 and Col 4.3-4)..
When we go into the world we should be telling others the good news that - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose on the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." This brings them over to the good side (the family of God) so we can have fellowship with them and teach them to preach the gospel as well (Mk 16.15 and Mt 28.20).
"What communion does light have with darkness (2 Cor 6.14b)." Let's bring the sin barrier down (Also read IMAGINE on www.preach-the-gospel.org.).
