Preach the Word

I AM Jesus. The Holy Spirit inspired Paul to write, "Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season..." (II Timothy 4:2.) I want you to live a lifestyle of preaching the word. During My earthly ministry, I went to Capernaum and entered a house. At the house, many people gathered together. I then preached the word to them. (Mark 2:1-2.)

The early church suffered great persecution. Demon inspired people made havoc of the church. They entered their houses, drug them off, and imprisoned them. However, those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word. (Acts 8:1-4.) Many Christians today worldwide also suffer great persecution. Many are tortured, imprisoned, and even martyred for their faith. Regardless of the persecution, many of them continue to preach the word everywhere they go. They are so faithful, and great is their reward in Heaven.

I want you to preach the word. Here's how you can accomplish this. Let Us transform you from the inside out. Let Us fill you to overflowing with Our love. Experience Us. Don't just know about Us, or read about Us, really know Us. When you know Us intimately, We pour out of you. It will be your nature to preach the word everywhere you go.

II Timothy 4:2
Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.

Mark 2:1-2
1 And again He entered Capernaum after some days, and it was heard that He was in the house.  2 Immediately many gathered together, so that there was no longer room to receive them, not even near the door. And He preached the word to them.

Acts 8:1-4
1 Now Saul was consenting to his death. At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles.  2 And devout men carried Stephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. 3 As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison. 4 Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word.
