Feb 14, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, in stunned revelation:

“It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached.”
(Philippians 1:15-18)

Paul could have ignored this ugly truth about preachers of the gospel, Jesus.

Our shame.
Our dirty laundry.

For some preachers, the gospel is a gig – just another way to make

a buck
a name for themselves
trouble for others.

But Your gospel is so powerful that it can save the hearer

while the preacher goes to hell.
