Preaching Jesus

Today’s Verse:

The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:) ~Acts 10:36

One of my favorite chapters of the Bible is Acts 10, which records how Peter, a Jew, was commissioned by God to go to a Gentile centurion named Cornelius. This incident opened the door for the gospel to be preached to the Gentiles. Cornelius needed God’s messenger to bring him, his family, and his friends a message that would be a major watermark for the gospel. In Acts 10:34-48, Peter gives us a biblical model for “preaching Jesus.”

We preach Jesus and His deity.

Preaching Jesus demands that we hold nothing back in letting people know that He is God. Peter presented Jesus as “Jesus Christ:” the Messiah Who is Jehovah’s salvation. Peter presented Him as “Lord of all.” He presented Jesus as Judge of the quick and the dead. Jesus is God incarnate, God incredible, and God Who is all-infinite.
