Go & Preach

There is no more important or urgent matter in the universe than the salvation of the lost. Its no wonder Jesus’s last words on earth were instructions to take the gospel to the ends of the world.

With so much at stake it is not surprising that Jesus’s command here is extremely clear and direct. It contains two explicit critical actions: “go” and “preach.” Had Jesus simply said, “Be sure to make a positive impact on the world,” we would never have known exactly what action to take. But Jesus knew the salvation of the lost depended on “going” and “preaching. 

I’ve heard it taught that the most effective way to win the lost is simply by living a good life, and “letting your light shine” wherever you are. While these are all good things, if they become a substitute for “going” and “preaching,” they are nothing more than comfortable compromises. It amazes me the incredibly creative things people come up with to try to impact the world and society without having to go and preach the gospel. Churches and ministries spend enormous amounts of time, money, and energy every year on programs and activities through which they hope to reach the lost, but nothing will substitute for the specific actions Christ prescribed. The original commands remain the same. Though foolish in their simplicity, they will forever remain the most efficient and effective way to win the world – go and preach the gospel.
