The seal of my apostleship!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi
This is my answer to those who ask me why I preach, and this they ask because they think I have no right to, but the scripture says, "how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!" Romans 10:15.

What’s my job?

I am God’s messenger, an apostle if you like, responsible to no mere man, but Christ himself, and that I do is enlist you for the race, so that you may run your race too, and run much so to win.

"For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more" 1 Corinthians 9:19. I have freely and happily become a servant of any and all so that I can win them to Christ.

Do I have rights at all?

Of course I do.  I can claim the same power or privileges the other apostles have to burden you. Instead of me working, I can make demands of you to give towards my needs, pay my expenses, and that I eat your food, and this you will do because God commands you to, "...that Christian workers should be paid by those they help. Those who do the plowing and threshing should expect some share of the harvest. We have planted good spiritual seed in your souls. Is it too much to ask, in return, for mere food and clothing? 1 Corinthians 9:9 -11.

In the same way the Lord has given orders that those who preach the Gospel should be supported by those who accept it. Paul support this by saying, "... I bear you record, that, if it had been possible, ye would have plucked out your own eyes, and have given them to me" Galatians 4:15.

"If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the gospel of Christ" 1 Corinthians 9:12.

I would rather die of hunger than lose the satisfaction I get from preaching to you without charge.

What is my pay?

It is the special joy I get from preaching the Gospel without expense to anyone, never demanding my rights.

What’s the purpose?

That I win you, that you fight on, and run until you obtain.

God bless,
Laurence

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

Questionable circumstances are a red flag

  Stay away from a preacher who never takes time off even if ill/old, who insists on dealing with certain people - that’s a red flag!  Questionable circumstances are a red flag believers have to look out for. Here is how the gospel works; you’re told the news first and then you relay it to others. Never claim ownership of it, instead pass it on, share and never enforce it upon a generation. Treating it as if it is yours is corruption or abuse of the delegated powers. Remember Rome was not built in one day, meaning the gospel is a complex task, it takes all our efforts, and great achievement takes time and effort and should not be rushed. So you pass it own to show that you have understood the gospel. No generation claims supremacy, the fathers passed it own to their sons (kings), prophets to other prophets too, and to Jesus, and Jesus to the apostles (Holy Ghost), and the apostles to us and so forth. I like how John puts it, he said, "I baptize with water: but there standeth one a

Experience God's peace!

Reverend LC Muzembi  "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things" Philippians 4:8 KJV Yes my friend, stay true to the Lord, remember he is coming soon. If you do this, you will experience God's peace, and it’s peace which will keep you through this journey.  The Lord said, " Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you " John 14:27. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. And the Apostle said, " Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you " Philippians 4:9. In short, read your bible, study it through, receive its truths with open heart or the hearing of faith, acknowledge
