Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.
But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
Preach the Word in season and out of season!
This charge is given in the presence of God – His eyes are always on us
So we must do what he calls us to do
1. Why is Sharing the Good News Urgent and Important?
There is a delusion where people don’t want to hear the truth anymore – they only hear want they want to hear.
We need to preach the gospel because there are people to save. God’s heart is for all to not perish and come into the saving grace
The sharing of good news brings life and immortality in Jesus Christ
God entrusted us with the good news. We are to guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Holy Spirit helps us to share the good news. God gives us the strength to share the gospel.
We must not be ashamed of the gospel
We can stand approved as we present ourselves before God
