Message 14: Preaching the Gospel

IV. According to the Bible, there are five expressions related to preaching the gospel: witnessing, leading people to the Lord, sowing, reaping, and paying a debt—Acts 1:8; John 1:40–42, 4:36–37; Matt. 9:37–38; Rom. 1:14
Acts 1:8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
John 1:40–42 One of the two who heard this from John and followed Him was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, We have found the Messiah (which translated means Christ). 42 He led him to Jesus. Looking at him, Jesus said, You are Simon, the son of John; you shall be called Cephas (which is interpreted, Peter).
John 4:36–37 He who reaps receives wages and gathers fruit unto eternal life, in order that he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. 37 For in this the saying is true, One sows and another reaps.
Matthew 9:37–38 Then He said to His disciples, The harvest is great, but the workers few; 38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest that He would thrust out workers into His harvest.
Romans 1:14 I am debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to foolish.
