It Is Incumbent On God’s People To Proclaim The Good News


Commenting on 1 Timothy 2:4-7 ~~

 

Although it is not directly Paul’s point in this paragraph, these words function as one of the more significant missions/evangelism passages in the NT. The same reason that Paul was appointed a herald of the good news for the Gentiles is why the church must always be involved in missions. It is inherent in the very character of God, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth, and in the redemptive work of Christ, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. It is therefore incumbent on God’s people to proclaim that good news.
