Before going to the verses talking about preaching, it would first be helpful to identify what kind of gospel should be preached. According to the Apostle Paul, the gospel he received from God contained the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Because Christ became victorious over sin, death and hell, He has promised that anyone who would believe in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

This message should be preached throughout the world. In the day of Jesus, He already made this commandment, and until today that mandate is true for the church. Paul told Timothy to be prepared to preach the gospel at any given time or place.

Not everyone will believe the preaching of the gospel. Some would call it nonsense, and some might make fun of us, but we should remember to fulfil this calling. Lives are at stake, and if we quit, where can they hear about God’s love for them?
