For if I preach the gospel, I have no reason for boasting, because I am compelled to do this. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel! (1 Corinthians 9:16)
Everyone who is saved by the grace of God is called to testify and share the gift of salvation. That, however, is not the same as the call to preach, but is merely an illustration of our deeds and showing love to one another which can be used in preaching.
Once someone begins to hear that calling, a suffering worthy of the name of Jesus Christ is expected to be produced. Suddenly, every dreams and ambition, every desire of life, and every outlook is completely wipe out. Only one thing remains— “… separated to the gospel… .” Woe is to the soul who tries to head in any other path once that call has come to him. Receive the calling now!
