It Ministers must preach Christ Lord because the Gospel he preached declared Jesus as Lord. “We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord.” In our last post, we noted Paul’s insistence that Gospel ministers must avoid the temptation to preach ourselves.

But what, then, are we to preach. The apostle provides us with a clear, definite answer: “We proclaim Jesus Christ as. Paul writes to the Corinthians, “For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake” (2 Cor ).

Paul clearly understands that ministers are not just leaders; they are servant leaders, called to do the task God has given them in and through Jesus Christ (cf.

I serve like a priest in preaching the Good News from God, in order that the Gentiles may be an offering acceptable to God, dedicated to him by the Holy Spirit. Holman Christian Standard Bible to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles, serving as a priest of God's good news.

We are to preach Christ Jesus according to the mystery (Rom; Eph. ) with all boldness. We, like the apostle Paul must preach and teach the entire Word of God (2 Tim; Gal). We preach Heaven, we must preach Hell, or we shall be held accountable. God’s Word has much more to say about Hell than it does Heaven.

But any minister who refuses to preach the gospel of grace, that salvation from beginning to end is God’s work of grace, and who refuses to preach holiness, is one who enslaves people.

Preaching on this text (John ), Luther noted, “This is a necessary principle. In the ministry, where the divine Word is concerned, Christ’s words, used here, must be followed, so that no one preachers any doctrine unless it is supported and buttressed by the certainty that his doctrine is not his own.

A preaching ministry that does not take into account the lost does a disservice to Jesus’s death on the cross. Pastors must preach from the same viewpoint that Jesus had for the lost.

“We preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.” 2 Corinthians Andrew Fuller believed that a preacher’s greatest responsibility is to preach Christ and Him crucified. Let’s serve others by serving Christ (Colossians ).

God the Father has served us by sacrificing Christ on the cross for our sins, and we should serve others by giving the gospel and our lives to them (1 Thessalonians ). Those who desire to be great in God’s kingdom must be the servant of all (Matthew ).

1 Corinthians - But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; (Verses like 1 Corinthians ) 2 Corinthians - Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.

Servants of Christ die daily to sin and fleshly desires, allowing Christ’s life to flow through them (Galatians ). To be a servant of Christ is to seek His will in all things. Our primary desire every day, as servants of Christ, is to honor and glorify the One who bought our freedom from sin (1 Corinthians ).

This means we must die. And the answer of necessity must be, The Lord has graciously made me his ambassador to bear the divine message of reconciliation to the world, and my privilege and duty is to announce that message.” CHAPTER 6 People Who Preach —Ministers Offer Themselves Willingly SECTION 5 Kingdom Education —Training Servants of the King Show more.

Greeting and Declaring His Apostle-ship Gal. Galatians Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;) (KJV). [1.] Jesus Christ must be preached PLAINLY and CLEARLY, so that the lowest capacity may understand what they say concerning Christ.

They must preach Christ for edification of others, and not to work admiration of themselves—as too many do in these days. Paul was excellent at this kind of preaching, 1 Cor. When they act according to Christ’s institution, those put into the office act “in the stead and by the command” of Christ and so that those who hear them, hear Christ (cf.

Servant leaders do not compare or judge one another. They do not seek to become what they are not, nor cause division, strife, or conflict.

Servant leaders do not leave conflict unresolved or festering. The Lord’s bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged, for rulers are servants of God, devoting themselves to this very thing.
