Proclaim the Gospel to Your Soul

Description

You no longer need to live in poverty of the spirit. Proclaim the good news of the Gospel to your soul!

Focus Scripture: Luke 8:1-3 ESV

1 Soon afterward he went on through cities and villages,

proclaiming and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God.

And the twelve were with him,  

2 and also some women who had been healed  

of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Magdalene,  

from whom seven demons had gone out,  

3 and Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s household manager,

and Susanna, and many others,  

who provided for them out of their means.

Jesus came proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God to all.

He came to the brokenhearted,

to the downcast, to the demon possessed,

to those society overlooked or looked down upon.

No one was too lowly for Jesus.

Are you downcast?

Are you discouraged?

Are you depressed?

Take heart.

We have hope because of Him!

Preach and proclaim this beautiful good news to yourself.

TAKING GOD’S WORD TO HEART

Jesus has brought good news–

you no longer need to live in poverty of spirit.

Proclaim the good news to your soul!

Jesus will continue to bind up your broken heart –

He is your beloved.

When your heart is breaking,

proclaim the good news to your soul!Jesus has released you from captivity and opened the prison —

you no longer have to live bound in sin under condemnation.

When you are under the accusation of the enemy

and the criticism of the world,

proclaim the good news to your soul!

He will comfort you whenever you mourn–

He has given you “a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,

the oil of gladness instead of mourning,

the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;

that [you] may be called [an oak] of righteousness,

the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified” (Isaiah 61:3).

You no longer need to walk in despair or discouragement.

Proclaim the good news to your soul!

Remember that He is your salvation.

Psalm 147:3

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

Luke 19:10

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.

Matthew 11:28

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden,  

and I will give you rest.

Confess your sin of not remembering the Good News.

MEDITATE or MEMORIZE

Write out the following verse from Luke 8 and recite it 3 times.

Take it with you throughout the day.

1 Soon afterward he went on through cities and villages,
proclaiming and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God.

PRAYER

Father, I confess my sin of not remembering the Good News.

Please help me see your love for me and your great forgiveness

so that I might proclaim to all the Good News

of the kingdom of God in all that I do.
