HOW LONG ‘TIL SOMEBODY CATCHES ON?

HOW LONG ‘TIL SOMEBODY CATCHES ON?
“In as much as both in my bonds,
and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel,
ye all are partakers of my grace.”
Philippians 1:7

There’s an old imprisoned apostle who just won’t quit preaching the gospel of God’s glory. He sees himself somehow blessed to pass on to others what he counts as God’s blessing to him. What is it that he values so highly and yet for its sake he’s chained to a guard day and night in Roman incarceration?
It’s the gospel itself, which, as he sees it, is itself the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes it. It’s the gospel of Christ. It’s the gospel of God’s grace to sinners. It’s the gospel of God’s great glory in the salvation of His people!
When the apostle goes to jail, he sees it as a means to preach this gospel. When he stands before magistrates to plead his own case, he sets out to confirm to them the gospel. When he’s allowed to live in his own house, though chained, he doesn’t write a book defending himself…he writes letters to churches about the gospel. Given a pen, he writes gospel instructions to a young pastor. Hire him a hall, and he unapologetically teaches the gospel into the wee hours of the morning, until a listener goes to sleep and falls out of the window. He lives and breathes the gospel.
To this apostle, the gospel is precious, of greater value than personal freedom or comfort. He senses that he has passed to his hearers a great prize, something of eternal worth to them. God gave it to him, and he gives it to those who will lend an ear. His reward: “ye are all partakers of my grace!”
Too bad Paul didn’t live in our day…we could teach him a few things. Like, “You’ve got to do more than preach the gospel to this enlightened age!” And, “You know, we’ve got to do something for the young people (or the old people, or the singles, or the married, forevermore…)”. And by the way, we’ve done a lot of things for all the special groups, and they just keep on multiplying and having problems…and going to hell. Why? Because it’s the gospel that’s the power of God to salvation, and nothing else.
One day it may occur to somebody that salvation’s a miracle of God, wrought through the preaching of the gospel (I Cor.1:18, 21, “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”
~~Jay Wimberly 1936-2012
