Entertained by the Word of God - Matthew 27:36-42

 

When Jesus Christ was on the Cross at Golgotha, people were entertained when the Word of God was dying on the Cross for their sins. Matthew 27:36-42 (KJV) says: “And sitting down they watched him there; And set up over his head his accusation written, This Is Jesus The King Of The Jews. Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left. And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads, And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said, He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.” Do people go to church to be entertained today?

The church should be a place where a person can learn biblical principles and TRUTH. John 20:31 (KJV) says:  “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Pastors have a responsibility to preach the Word of God and NOT depart from THE WAY. Pastors have a responsibility to preach the Word of God and not be a stumbling block unto others. Pastors have a responsibility to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ! 

Be not entertained by the Word of God but be saved by the Word of God. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17 KJV).

If you have not believed, what is stopping you right now from believing? God loves you and has already died and resurrected to meet you. Believe Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, burial, and resurrection and receive the greatest gift ever which is eternal life. Eternal life does not start when you die, eternal life starts the very second you believe in Jesus Christ for salvation. Why not trust in Jesus Christ today for salvation. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” (John 3:16-18 KJV)

If you know someone who is not saved, forward this message to them and share the greatest gift that one could ever receive.

Once Saved, Always Saved -"And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one." (John 10:28-30 KJV)
