THE BELIEVER'S ROLE - By Robert E. Hanna

Scripture Reading: II Corinthians 5:19-20

In this present age of grace we, as members of His Body,  are appointed emissaries of Jesus Christ. "God was in Christ,  reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their  trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word  of reconciliation. Nowthen we are ambassadors for Christ" (II  Corinthians 5:19-20).

The apostle Paul charged his son in the faith Timothy,  "Preach the word: be instant in season, out of season .... Do the  work of an evangelist" (II Timothy 4:2,5). We Body members  today are the believing remnant in this dispensation of His  grace; thus, these instructions are automatically passed on to  us as the only voice of the Savior in the world. Paul pleads  with us, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of  God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy,  acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service"
(Romans 12:1).

The word that we are to preach is The Gospel ofthe Grace  of God-Paul's gospel. Lest there be any doubt of this, the  apostle minces no words: "Though we, or an angel from  heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we  have preached unto you, let him be accursed" (Galatians 1:8).  Paul is our apostle; his gospel is our gospel; his ministry is our  ministry. He has these words of admonition for us as laborers  for Christ: "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 ... think on these things.  Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and  heard, and seen in me, do" (Philippians 4:8-9).

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
