Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction.
(2 Timothy 4:2 (NIV))
The world needs to hear what we have to tell. It is not because it is our story to tell, but because it is God’s story to tell.
God does not wish for any to perish, so He sent His Son, Jesus, as a means to grace and mercy. That is something that is worth telling.
When we hear the word “preach,” we think of someone who stands up in a pulpit on Sunday morning. All that this word really means is to tell the story of what God has done through Jesus Christ.
We are not eloquent speakers able to command rousing responses from large crowds, but we are able to tell people that we know what Jesus has done for us. In this sense, we are all preachers.
If you feel uncomfortable with this word, think of yourself as a teller of the greatest story to ever happen to mankind and then tell it to someone else.
