Matthew 28:19 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Matthew 24:14 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
All who have come to Christ are also called by God to serve in His kingdom (Ps. 100:3; Eph. 4:12; Heb. 9:14). In this sense every Christian is a God-called minister. Thus, each believer should find ways to serve. Theres no school that you must attend or seminaries to go to. God calls us not men. He sends His Holy Spirit to teach us as well. Who better to teach the living word of God than God Himself.
The Scriptures tell us that as Christians its our duty to preach the Gospel to every living creature.
And (Jesus) said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned."
He wasn't asking us to do this He was commanding us to do this.
2nd Corinthians 5:10-11, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men...”
Every born-again believer has a responsibility to preach the Gospel, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ crucified with lost sinners so that they can be forgiven and spend eternity in Heaven.
Carefully notice that the Bible does NOT say to go into the world and make music. The Bible does NOT say to go into the world and start a business. The Bible does NOT say to go into the world and write books. No, rather, God's inspired Words instruct us to PREACH THE GOSPEL. We read in
Romans 10:13-14, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?”
The great need of the hour in today's churches is preaching preachers who teach their flock to be soul-winners.
Matthew 28:19-20 are commonly referred to as “The Great Commission.”
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Most believers fail to realize that there are two parts to The Great Commission: 1) Preaching the Gospel, and 2) Teaching new converts how to be soulwinners. The Lord wants us to go soulwinning and then teach those whom we have the privilege of leading to the Lord how to become soulwinners themselves. There is a Biblical mandate for each believer to go forth preaching the Gospel. We must give account to God for each day of our life (Romans 14:12).
Preach it to every living Creature. Jesus warns us about being idle in His work. I see Christians all over face book and not many ever preach Gods Word. ARE YOU SHAMED OF YOUR SAVIOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you so lazy that you cannot do as Jesus commanded you to do.!!!!!! This was the most important work ever set for us to do. As Christians its urgent that we tell everyone the Gospel of Christ and His Good News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh ye who sleep in the dust awake for the hour is upon you. Be ready HAVE OIL FOR YOUR LANTERNS FOR THE BRIDEGROOM COMETH AND YET YOU ARE UNPREPARED FOR HIS ARRIVAL.
PREACH TO ALL MANKIND IN EVERYWHERE ANYWAY YOU CAN!!!!!!!!
