Proclaiming the Gospel: The Communication of the Christian Message 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
The most dramatic New Testament story concerning partnership and prayer is recorded for us in the 12th chapter of Acts.
The ministry to which we are called is the preaching of "the glorious gospel of Christ" (4:4). As evangelists, teachers, pastors, and laymen, we must be divinely motivated, if our ministry is to be effective. Paul proceeds to outline the threefold motivation of our ministry, the first being HOPE, which he defines as and "eternal weight of glory."
