why take gospel

The Early Church understood evangelism was for everybody Mark 16:20. We have the Great Commission to take the Gospel to the unsaved in the entire world. The pattern of Jesus’ ministry was outward bound and we should follow it He went about all Galilee, their cities and villages (Matt. 4:23, 24; 9:35, 36; Acts 10:38) and told us to go out and compel them to come in (Luke 14:21, 23). We are His ambassadors, we have a Commission, and we have supernatural power to help us which are all reasons why we must take the Gospel to the unsaved. It is not God’s will for any to perish (1 Timothy 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9) but also the unsaved man’s condition demands that we initiate contact. No one gets saved without contact. The condition of every unsaved person is why we MUST take the Gospel to them:

1. Their mind is blinded 2 Corinthians 4:4.
2. Their understanding is darkened Ephesians 4:17, 18.
3. They walk according to another spirit Ephesians 2:2.
4. They are deceived by their own heart Jeremiah 17:9; the deceitfulness of sin Hebrews 3:13; by satan/demons Revelation 12:9.

The Bible further describes them saying that “There is none righteous and none that seeketh after God Romans 3:10, 11.” When Jesus spoke the parable of the lost sheep, lost coin, and lost son in Luke 15 the seeker always represents God not man. God was seeking man not man as the seeker of God. That is one of the reasons Jesus came, to seek and to save that which was lost (Luke 19:10).
