When Christ is preached, the Lord opens the hearts of men and women to respond to Him.

1 Kings 12:25-14:20; Acts 16:1-15; Psalm 78:1-8

“The Lord will raise up for Himself a king over Israel” (1 Kings 14:14). There was much “sin” among God’s people (1 Kings 13:33-34). God did not abandon His purpose of salvation. His saving purpose finds its fulfilment in Christ. He is the Gospel (“Good News”) which God has called us to preach (Acts 16:10). When Christ is preached, the Lord opens the hearts of men and women to respond to Him (Acts 16:14). Christ is the message which we must “not hide … from our children”. We must “tell the next generation” of Him (Psalm 78:4).
