PREACHING, TEACHING AND HEALING
If God became a man we know that He would spend His time doing the maximum good for all mankind.
"How God anointed JESUS OF NAZARETH with the Holy Ghost and with power: WHO WENT ABOUT DOING GOOD, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him." (Acts 10:38)
Dear friend, let us ask ourselves what activities Christ engaged Himself in during His brief stay on earth. Was it the building of schools and hospitals? Was it the building of orphanages and providing of electricity and water? The answer is NO!
We can find out what Jesus did by reading the four Gospels. Again, this Scripture in particular summarizes the activities of Christ on earth. I want you to read it carefully.
"And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, TEACHING in their synagogues, and PREACHING the gospel of the kingdom, and HEALING every sickness and every disease among the people." (Matthew 9:35)
These three activities must have been the most beneficial to the human race. That is why He engaged Himself in them.
We can safely conclude that the most important and highest form of assistance given to any community on this earth must be preaching, teaching and healing.
It is time to understand that preaching, teaching and healing are what the world needs. The world is waiting for preachers. The world is waiting for teachers. God is raising an army of preachers and teachers who will do His will.
The church becomes relevant when it gets involved in preaching, teaching and healing. That is what God would have done and that is what we should do.
The wisdom of God is foolishness to men. God has chosen that by the foolishness of preaching, man should be saved.
"For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe." (1 Corinthians 1:21)
