Preaching The Gospel
"So they departed and went through the towns, preaching the gospel and healing everywhere." Luke 9:6 NKJV
When was the last time you preached the gospel to others? There's really no excuse that's good enough; you can't be that busy; you laugh all the time, you have unofficial interactions with colleagues, classmates and clients, you are in contact with people all the time, and you are an expert in promoting your business and sharing jokes and other information online. So there's no excuse!
Preaching the gospel is our number one calling, just in case you didn't know. Just before He ascended into heaven Jesus said that we should go into all the world and preach the gospel to every one. Meaning that the gospel is for everyone, wherever and whoever they are. We must become masters in communication, and preach to people in the ways they will understand.
The gospel is the power of God unto salvation. If we don't preach men will not be saved; if we don't preach things will continue to go wrong; if we don't preach people will remain bound; if we don't preach Satan and the wicked ones will continue to operate without limitations. The disciples preached everywhere: that's what we ought to do.
