1 Chronicles 21:11-15
So Gad came to David, and said to him, Thus said the LORD, Choose you…
Let us look at God as representing every true minister of Jesus Christ.
I. GOD'S MESSAGE WAS DIVINE. The gospel is a message from God. This is attested —
1. By the facts of history,
2. By its congruity with the spiritual constitution of men.
3. By the experience of thousands of every age who have felt it to be the power of God unto salvation.
II. GOD'S MESSAGE WAS AN APPEAL TO CHOICE. "Advise thyself." Deliberate, choose for thyself. The gospel message is submitted to your choice.
1. You can accept it.
2. You can reject it.
III. GOD'S MESSAGE WAS TO BE ACCOUNTED FOR.
1. He was responsible for its delivery. So with every gospel minister, and woe be to him if he declares not the whole counsel of God.
2. David was responsible for its results. So are also the hearers of the gospel.
