The Great Commission consists of preaching the gospel to every creature and teaching them that believe to observe Christ's command to preach the gospel (Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20). We must speak up!
The gospel - “Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.1-4).” should be on the lips of every believer for it pleases God by the foolishness of preaching (the gospel) to save them that believe (1 Cor 1.21, Mk 16.15, Rom 1.16, Jn 6.47 & Acts 16.31). Preaching the gospel means to utter it with our mouth (Eph 6.19). If a person is not willing to tell the good news to others with their mouth they are not of God. "Hereby we know the the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus is come in the flesh is of God; And every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof you have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world (1 Jn 4 1-2)."
“How shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher (Rom 10.14)?” The instant a person believes on Christ after we preach the gospel to them they become saved (See 47 PASSAGES ON BELIEF that show a person is saved by believing on Christ and SAVED! for a definition of 'saved' on www.preach-the-gospel.org). We must speak up for the gospel saves every one that believes (See THE GOSPEL SAVES on www.preach-the-gospel.org.).
To preach the gospel simply ask another if they have heard the good news or proclaim “Good News” (Gospel means good news.) and tell them - “Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4).” Speak up!
