Today I told a Christian the good news and encouraged her to preach the gospel to others. She said that she just lives it. How can a person live it if they are not preaching the gospel?
Christ command is for us to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mk 16.15)." The problem is that she has never been taught by her so-called church what the gospel is or how to preach it. This is the case with all evangelical churches in the USA because they have replaced the gospel with their 'plan of salvation' (See PLAN OF SALVATION on www.preach-the-gospel.org.).
Another Christian said all they have to do is believe. I told them, “Even the devils believe, and they tremble (Jas 2.19).” Don't you know that faith without works is dead (Jas 2.20)? The work is that there are seven billion people (every person in every nation) that must have the gospel preached to them before Christ returns (Mt 24.14 & 30-31 and 1 Thes 4.13-18).
I've haven't given up trying to convince Christians to preach the gospel, but I probably should. Christ says to “Let them alone (Mt 15.14). I have Christian friends that I have been trying to teach to preach the gospel for years but they just don't get it. One of my friends is a Sunday school teacher but I can't get him to teach his students how to preach the gospel.
To preach the gospel simply ask another if they have heard the good news and tell them - “Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4).” This allows them to believe on Christ and be saved. Then teach them to preach the gospel (Mt 28.20).
Let's live it by preaching the gospel and teaching others to preach it!
