According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed unto my trust. 1Tim 1:11.
But as we were allowed of God To be put in trust with the gospel. 1Thess 2:4.
A debtor is someone who is owing somebody something that he has to pay or give back at a specific time. A debtor is someone who is under an obligation to do something to someone. From these two definitions and the two scriptures quoted. We can concluded that we are debtors because we have been entrusted with something that is not ours originally i.e the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have received it, then what are we to do with it? .
And he said unto them go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature Mk 16:15.
Go ye therefore into the world and teach all nations, baptising them in the name of the father, son and the Holy Ghost.
We see clearly that the gospel we have been entrusted with is not to be kept in the church domain but to be preached to all creature and to all nations. So we are debtors because it has been entrusted to our care. We are debtors if we did not preach the gospel. The flaming torch of the gospel was passed from our master to his followers, both men and women who continue the saving and healing mission he started. His focus was that the Gospel will be preached until all heard the Gospel.
I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven having the everlasting Gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the Earth and to every nation and kindred and tongue and And people. Rev 14:6.
This was His Mission, this is why He was slain and redeem us to God by his blood out of every kindred and tongues and people and nations. Jesus said that the torch of the gospel would be carried throughout our world. He made it his mission and it suppose to be our mission and priority too.
And this Gospel of the Lord shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations and then shall the end come. Matt 24:14.
John saw in a vision the end result of our mission: he said,
I saw a great multitude which no man can number of all nations and kindred and people and tongue stood before the throne and before the king. Rev 7:9.
The torch of the gospel has been passed from believers of generations to another generations at the price of blood and of life. And one day it reached your hand and our hand too, this makes us a debtor to the gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel for that you have received must not die in your hand and in your generation. You have to do something with it before it is too late. Let us arise and do something with it while it is day time,very soon the night Will come and nobody will be able to do anything with the gospel.
We are debtor not to the flesh to live for the flesh but we are debtors to the gospel we received and belief. We are debtor because it has been entrusted unto us. Do not let the torch of the gospel die in your hand. Let us pass it to the next generation.
