For decades Billy Graham has worked diligently as a minister for God’s kingdom, preaching throughout the world to call people to Jesus Christ. Most of us will never reach crowds as large or stand on a platform proclaiming the good news. However, we all have a calling to preach the good news.
We are saved into God’s family, to help point others to God’s family. Every one of us is called to be a minister and preach the good news of Jesus Christ’s saving grace and mercy.
You don’t have to be on a stage, your platform is where God has placed you on this planet. All around you are opportunities — the child in your care, the employees around you, the person behind the counter, the medical staff, your social connections, your family. Every person you meet is a person you can love with the love of Christ and tell of the love of Christ.
We are ambassadors for Christ, royal proclaiming priests, evangelists, preaching the good news, living in the here and now to help point others to eternal life.
Preach Christ to those who know Christ. Preach Christ to those who don’t know Christ until they know they need Christ.
We have good news, friends. Let’s tell others! Preach!
