"I charge thee therefore before God,and the Lord Jesus Christ,who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season,out of season;reprove,rebuke,ehort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will come when they will endure sound doctrine;but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers,having itching ears;andthey shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things,endure affliction, do the work of an evangelist,make proof of thy ministry." 2 Timothy 4: 1-5
As ministers we need to HONOR this charge that was giving to Timothy from Paul.
Just like the president and vice-president have an oath to keep in order to abide by to run this country or a police officer of fire fighter has an oath to uphold so does we ministers also as well.
Remember, we have an oath to uphold as servants; a charge to keep and a God to satisfy we all must abide this oath not damaging the office they we are holding.
PREACH THE WORD!!!!!!
The question is why is this office "soiled" or has such a bad representation? Simple, the false teachers that preaches how to prosper instead the CROSS. The Cross is the most important message to a dying word really needs to preach and should be the most important of any subject.
It is a shame that even the preachers who are really preaching the Gospel and those who don't preach the Gospel get lumped together and then get bad press. This will give unbelievers to believe that all churches are alike; money hungry, fake preaching, hypocritical churches. It is time for churches to step-up from what they are known by others and start and let the church be the church by preaching the Gospel in season and out of season winning souls for Christ.
