Message 14: Preaching the Gospel

III. The call to preach the gospel and save people comes from four directions

C. The third direction from which a call for the gospel comes is an inward call, an irresistible call, an urgent, inward sense of responsibility—1 Cor. 9:16–17
1 Corinthians 9:16–17 For if I preach the gospel, I have no boast, for necessity is laid upon me; for woe to me if I do not preach the gospel. 17 If I do this of my own will, I have a reward; but if not of my own will, I am entrusted with a stewardship.
1. When we receive His salvation, we also receive His commission and spontaneously feel a spiritual responsibility
2. This stewardship is in our innermost heart, and through the moving of the Holy Spirit, it becomes a burden, a pressing voice, that compels us to preach the gospel


Read over the outline points and verses above and use these for your prayer to spend time with the Lord in the Word in the morning. After your prayer time, jot down in your notebook one or two things that the Lord touched you with.

Later, watch the following short video podcast sometime during the day.
