Volume 12 - Number 25     

"Why Evangelize!"

Because of the command of Christ:

Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15 (cf. John 14:15).

Because of the condition of all men:

Matthew 9:36-38; 14:49-50; II Thessalonians 1:7-10; I Peter 4:17-28; Jude 23; Revelation 20:15.

Because of the consequences of the gospel:

Matthew 7:13; 14: 49-50; II Thessalonians 1:7-10; I Peter 4:17-18; Jude 23; Revelation 20:15.

Because of the coming of Christ:

I Corinthians 15:58; II Corinthians 5:10-11; I Thessalonians 2:19-20.

Because of the constraint of love:

II Corinthians 5:14 (cf. Paul’s example in Romans 9:1-3; 10-1).

Because of the character of the gospel: It is the only thing that works!

Acts 4:12; Romans 1:14-16

Because of the commitment of the message to us:

I Corinthians 9:16-23; II Corinthians 5:18-20; I Thessalonians 2:4-8; I Timothy 1:11-16.
