Spirit of Fire – Share the Good News

Share the Good News

Share, Good News, Shout it out
Share the Good News!

Have you ever wondered what Paul meant by something “lacking in the afflictions of Christ”. How indeed could the total sacrifice of the perfect Lamb of God fall short in any way? Surely His offering was entirely sufficient, securing the promise of redemption for all mankind. If so, what was lacking? Quite simply, this: the communication? Share the Gospel, of what His sufferings achieved.


While Jesus did remain on Earth for several days before ascending to Heaven, the main task of spreading the good news of salvation was left to His followers. This assignment has been passed on from generation to generation, and rests at present in your hands and mine (see Mark 16:15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. , Romans 10:13–14 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” 14 How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? How how can they hear without someone preaching to them? and 1 Peter 4:13 13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.

Share the Good News or Lose it

If we do not proclaim the Gospel, our Lord bled and died for nothing. How desperately He needs us, and how much He must trust us to allocate this duty into our keeping!

If we fail, the salvation plan fails. People do not go to hell because Jesus did not die for them. He died for all of us (see John 3:16). Rather, people go to hell because they have not accepted His sacrifice. 

And how will they accept it if they do not know about it? As believers, we should constantly be filling up in the flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ. With our mouths, we should be sharing the wonders of His love. With our hands, we should be praying for healing and deliverance (see Psalm 34:17 and Psalm 107:6, 20).

Our Jesus saves, our Jesus sets the captives free—and we should not keep silent!
