Wise Words for Today

Everywhere He went Jesus preached the Kingdom. That was His assignment. Jesus’ primary message was not the born again message that dominates gospel preaching. In His entire recorded ministry, Jesus spoke only once about being born again, and that was in the middle of the night……Not only did Jesus rarely speak about being born again, neither did He make these other themes the focus of His preaching: prosperity, healing, baptism in the Holy Spirit, or many other things we preach so much about today. Jesus taught about those things…..but he didn’t preach them. There is a big difference. Jesus had only one message: the kingdom of God. That was His assignment and He passed it on to us. His assignment is our assignment.
