Five Reasons Why We
Preach the Gospel
My wife, Marge and I have spent over 55 years going into over
125 countries telling the ‘Good News’ of the Gospel Next the
question may be asked, “Why do you preach the Gospel?”
I. God’s Word tells me to preach the Word.
- Mark 16:15 KJV - "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the
world, and preach the gospel to every creature. If I had not
other reason, this would be enough."
- Jesus told his Church in the great commission for all
believers to go into all the world and to preach the Gospel to
II. I am called to preach the Gospel.
A. I am an Evangelist. Apostle Paul to do the work of an evangelist.
III. The Gospel is the Power of God!
- Rom 1:16 KJV "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that
believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."
IV. I would like to overcome the grave and death.
There is only one way not to go by way of the grave. Jesus told
us how in Matthew 24:14 - "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." If we can reach the whole world with
the message of the Kingdom we will not be taken by the
‘undertaker’ but by the ‘upper taker’.
V. It changes lives.
I do not know anything that can change lives more than the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. It can unite broken homes, draw the
alcoholic from the cup, the gambler from the cards, the addict
from the needle, the harlot from the streets and draw all people
into the Kingdom of God. It changes lives. It changed my life
and that is why we have given out lives to preach the Gospel. 2
Cor 5:17 KJV "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new
creature: old things are passed away"
These are a few of the reasons we go, however, most of all,
because we love our Father in heaven.
God bless and help you to preach the gospel with your words and
with your life
God bless you and
On behalf of this generation,
Your friends in the service of Christ,
