Be encouraged because there is something you can do. There is something you can do about the spiraling moral decay.  There is something you can do about the lack of decent “main stream” candidates.  There is something you can do directly to save babies from being murdered in their mothers’ wombs.  You can do all of this and better yet you can glorify and worship God.  You can do all of these things while being obedient to your Lord (King above all kings).   What is that?

Paul says it this way, “Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.”

Preaching the gospel is worship, ACTIVE worship of God and only the Gospel saves to the uttermost as Paul puts it this way.

‘For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”’

Do not be ashamed of the righteousness of God because as you proclaim His righteousness you are ACTIVELY worshipping His Lordship.

Of course the Gospel saves from God’s condemnation and leads people into a loving relationship with the creator that lasts for eternity. But there is an immediate side benefit. And that is those that repent and trust in Jesus for their salvation get a new heart. The Holy Spirit comes in and leads them into all truth and then they can understand God’s ways. Paul puts it this way.

“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

So by preaching the gospel you are saving the world one soul at a time.

But don’t take Paul’s word for it and certainly don’t take my word for it. Take Jesus’ word where He says:

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”

Jesus is talking to you. He is telling you to preach, He is commanding you to preach the gospel because He knows that preaching the gospel is worshiping and glorifying Him, preaching the gospel is the only power for salvation, preaching the gospel is the best thing you can do for your relationship for God while you are leading others into a relationship with God. Go and make disciples, go and preach the gospel.
