In Phil 1:15-18, Paul is talking about preaching Christ. This passage has become a real blessing to me. A long time ago I wondered why God would bless the ministry of liberal thinking ministers. This passage helped explain this. Some ministers preach Chirts out of jealousy and envy. Some preach Him out of selfish ambition. Some preach to get money from people. The most important thing to remember is that Christ is being preached. There are ministers that are in the church for power, prestige and yes, as I said before for money. Yet we also know the majority are real men of God who only wish to do the will of God. They want everyone around them to know Christ, These men preach Christ out of love. We have to remember that the word of God will not return void. We also know that God honors the preaching of His word. Isaiah reminds us that the Lord honors His word about His name. So when someone preaches Christ for whatever reason God honors His word. I am baffled why people get changed through some of the minister’s preaching but they do and God can use anyone or anything. If you have any doubt, check out the story of Balaam and his donkey. Balaam was stopped short when God used his donkey to talk to him. God can still use donkeys today. Your promises today are John 3:16, 1 John 4:4, James 4:7, Is 40:31, 41:10 anf 2 Tim 1:7. Your Insightful Saying are: At a funeral, the man in the casket rarely resembles the man described in the eulogy. The man who boasts of himself, to lift himself up must tear down others to do it.
