ON EVANGELIZATION AND MISSION
(Part 111)

COMMISSIONED TO PREACH THE GOSPEL – 14


May 16-17, 2019
Today’s reading: Acts 13:13-33

We have been reading about Peter preaching the gospel­on the day of Pentecost, at Solomon’s Portico, twice before the Sanhedrin, to Cornelius and his household. Now it is Paul’s turn. This was at the synagogue at Antioch in Pisidia.

And again we see the kerygma at work. Our own CLS is a proclamation of the gospel, with its basic elements.

  • Session 1: Jesus the Messiah. “God, according to his promise, has brought to Israel a savior, Jesus.” (v.23).
  • Session 2: Called to Witness.“These are now his witnesses before the people.” (v.31b).
  • Session 3: Repentance and Faith. “John heralded his coming by proclaiming a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel” (v.24).

The above is the basic kerygma. This preaching of the gospel is crucial, for it is through this that “to us this word of salvation has been sent.” (v.26b). Then, to complete God’s work of salvation in people, we add three more sessions which are needed to help a CLS participant to meet Christ, to live Christ, and to share Christ.

  • To meet Christ is to know him and enter into an intimate relationship with him.
  • To live Christ is to walk the path of holiness and authentic discipleship
  • To share Christ is to participate in the work of evangelization and mission. “We ourselves are proclaiming this good news to you that what God promised our ancestors he has brought to fulfillment for us, their children, by raising up Jesus” (v.32-33).

We in CFC-FFL have been called to preach the gospel of salvation in Jesus. This work of evangelization is the most important work of the Church, which is missionary. All our brethren should strive to be an army of holy warriors, fanning out throughout the world to proclaim Christ our Savior and Lord. “My brothers, if one of you has a word of exhortation for the people, please speak.” (v.15b).
