Deliver the Message
By Greg Laurie
“How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?”
When I was a kid, I had a paper route. I delivered the Daily Pilot on my Schwinn Sting-ray bicycle. I became pretty adept at throwing those papers. I knew how to clear a hedge and how
to land one on a porch.
My job wasn’t to write the news or make the news; my job was to deliver the news. I was just a delivery boy.
really what we are as Christians. We’re people delivering the message of the gospel, the message God gave us. We don’t have to apologize for the gospel, and we don’t need to add to it, take away from it, or edit it in any way. We need to
simply deliver it in its raw, explosive power.
The apostle Paul said, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew
first and also for the Greek” (Romans 1:16 NKJV).
In the original language, the word Paul used for power speaks of explosive power. In other words, there’s explosive power in the story of the
birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
I’ve seen it time and time again. The story simply connects with people. It’s God’s story, and we need to just deliver it and let
God do what He wants to do.
When we’re doing God’s work, the results are up to Him, not us. Yes, we should make every effort to succeed. But the outcome is up to God. And ultimately, God is
not going to require success from us; He’s going to require faithfulness from us.
I don’t have any power to convert anyone. Neither do you. Our job is to deliver the message as clearly as possible
and then leave the results up to Him.
This is for All people in the whole world . . . :
King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1 Thess 4:14
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus
will God bring with him.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not
perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned:
but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
