Philippians 1:27 says, “Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.” Everything we say and do should be to glorify God. We are message bearers. We bear the gospel message and if we do not act in this way, then we are denouncing the very thing we stand for.
If you had a very important message for someone, wouldn’t you want to share it? What if it determined their next steps and had major consequences if you did not deliver it? You would probably go out of your way to give them that message. This is the gospel. It is the most important message we can ever give anyone. It also has dire consequences if we do not deliver this message. We do not always see the consequences when they do not seem immediate. However, there are eternal consequences that should give us a sense of urgency. Spend some time in prayer today, asking God to give you an urgency for those who do not know Him.
