As followers of Jesus Christ, it’s understood that we should spread the Gospel to the people around us, but we do it with all kinds of different reasons and motives. If a survey on the motives of evangelism is conducted among Christians, you might be very surprised at the result.
The Apostle Paul blatantly pointed out some people preached Christ with a wrong motive, they did it out of selfish ambition (Philippians 1:15–17). Regardless of what motivates people to preach the Saviour, the heart of the Gospel message is always Jesus Christ. Let’s ponder Philippians 1:18.
18But that doesn’t matter. Whether their motives are false or genuine, the message about Christ is being preached either way, so I rejoice. And I will continue to rejoice. (Philippians 1:18 NLT)
Let’s pose a question to God. “Could You give me a pure heart of spreading Your Word?”
Let’s practice what you learnt. Pray for a pure heart of spreading God’s Word.
Let’s proclaim to others about your experiential knowledge. Tell a new believer that a pure motive of spreading the Gospel message is crucial.
