A Word for Preachers...Mohler on the Preacher's Privilege

"What a high privilege it is to be a preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Our Lord has given us the honor, the calling, the stewardship and the commission of preaching a saving gospel to a world that is in desperate need of salvation--and all to the end that Jesus would be worshiped as Savior in every tongue, from every tribe and people and nation.

"Looking at Paul's urgency in the book of Romans, we are confronted with a direct challenge. Do we really believe that the world needs to hear the message of the gospel? Do we really believe that the gospel saves? Do we really believe that faith comes by hearing the Word of God? If so, then our minds should be filled with no more urgent desire than to preach. This is not an option for us or for the church. It is our commission. "
