One sure way of progressing the gospel or the cause of Christ is by preaching it. It is one of the Lord’s commandments that must be obeyed by all children of God (Matt. 28:19-20; Mk. 16:15-16).
(1Cor. 9:16; 1:23; 2:2,4; Acts. 8:4,5,35; 9:20; 10:36; 17:3; Matt. 3:1-2; 9:35, Mk. 1:38; 16:20; Lk. 4:43;9:6; Acts. 28:30-31; Eph. 2:17; 1Pt. 3:19; 4:6; Rev. 14:6; Matt. 28:19-20; Mk. 16:15-16)
The baton of gospel preaching moved from John the Baptist to Jesus our Lord, and from Jesus to His immediate apostles and disciples and then to the later apostles and the early church (Matt. 3:1-3; Jn. 1:22-36; Matt. 4:23; 9:35; Mk. 1:38; Lk. 9:1-3; 10:1-3; Acts. 8:4,5,35; 9:20; 10:36; 1Cor. 1:23; 2:2,4).
This baton must not be dropped or abandoned, for how will the blind multitudes call on Him (for salvation) 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 (Rom. 10:14).
We are in the ministry where the Scriptures are taken at their face value; where serious mindedness cannot be compromised; where Christianity is not a secondary thing. It is obvious then that those children of God who sit down with people in the buses, cars, airplanes, trains, market-places etc. and will not talk to these people about the cross of Christ are sinning against the cross of Christ and against the people, moreso, given the five-fold unique objective of the Movement.
