The Good News – The Holy Spirit Speaks Prt 6

Mark 13_10-11 scripture image

  • What is happening in these verses?
    • In my research and studying, I observed these details:
      • Mark the apostle wrote this letter, in the book of Mark, chapter 13.
      • The theme of these verses is to encourage the readers to persevere through suffering and persecution while sharing the Good News to all the earth.
      • The work they were called to should be carried on and succeed in spite of all the opposition that they would meet with while doing it. The gospel must, for all this, be told among all nations, and before the destruction of Jerusalem the sound of it must go forward into all the earth; not only through all the nation of the Jews but, to all the nations of the earth.
      • It is a comfort to those who suffer for the gospel, that, even though they may endure great suffering, the gospel cannot; it must keep going, stand firm, and carry on.
      • The Holy Spirit gives us the words we need to say. We do not have to come up with our own words to share the Good News. The Holy Spirit speaks, not us.
  • What is God’s word saying?
    • While there are assigned missionaries that go out to foreign lands and spread the Good News of the Gospel and make disciples there, there are local mission fields that still need to hear the Good News. Especially in today’s day and age of what is going on. I won’t go into details since it’s already being broadcast all over the place constantly.
    • People are lost and need to be found, by God.
    • As far as what to do; we need to “Just Do It”! Yes, my favorite quote.
        1. Be in the Word and learn what it says so we can be ready to share any time.
        2. Pray without ceasing.
        3. Feel the Holy Spirit pouring over, in, and throughout our bodies; filling us to overflowing with His love, comfort, and guidance as we endure whatever comes our way; good or bad.
        4. Team up with other believers to go out into the community to share the Good News during a project for the community.

Prayer: Thank You, Father God, for the gift of Salvation. I pray for the lost souls to be found and that the Good News of the Gospel will make it around the world. Use me, Lord, I’m here. I pray for Your children to step up to the plate and share the Gospel of Jesus. Holy Spirit, be my voice and also for Your other children. In Jesus’ name, amen.

A Warning: Be Ready!
