[Bible Question] How can someone know if God is calling them to preach? Thank you for your time, I will pray for your ministry, and your book has been a blessing to me!
[Bible Answer] I know God called me to preach the same way I know I’m saved! I know that I know. I can only assume it is like that for others. NOTE: Just because one is called to preach does NOT mean he is ready or qualified! One MUST be both godly and sound in doctrine (1 Tim. 3; Titus 1; 1 Pet. 5). If not, he will cause HARM to others and himself!
A teacher’s judgment will be MORE STRICT (James 3:1). Such should not be pursued unless one is DEAD SERIOUS and knows God has called him. A preacher will face MANY VERY PAINFUL issues! It is NOT a bed of roses.
ALL Christians should witness and win souls. I started preaching on street corners and preached hundreds of times there! It is a great place to win souls. In fact, a street evangelist will win MANY MORE SOULS on the streets than in church buildings! The churches are APOSTATE. If you are called, ready and qualified to preach, they probably won’t want you to preach to them and will ignore or oppose you! Take the gospel to the streets. Get sound gospel literature and spread the life-giving gospel. You can print your own FREE gospel literature or order gospel tracts in BULK here. The harvest fields are ripe. Remember 1 Cor. 9:27 & 1 Tim. 4:16. GOD BLESS YOU.
