Should All Christians Evangelize?

Ok, here it is very simply, straight out of Scripture.

According to the Bible we will all spend eternity in one of two places (Matt 25:46 ). God doesn't take pleasure in the death of anyone (Eze 18:32 ). Without repentence, people perish (Luke 13:3, 5 ). God doesn't want anyone to perish, but all to come to repentance (2 Pet 3:9 ).

God chooses to use preaching the Gospel as the means for people to come to repentence and faith to be saved (Rom 10:13-15 ). He chooses to use us and we are commanded by the Great Commission to go out and tell other people (Matt 28:19-20, Mark 16:15, Acts 10:42 ).

We will be held accountable for our disobedience (Eze 33:8-9, Acts 20:26-27 ).

He has empowered us by His Spirit to go forth, proclaiming the Gospel (Acts 1:8 ). And He has given us instructions (2 Tim 4:5, 1 Cor 9:22, Acts 20:21 ).

Be ready for that day, when each of us will give an account to God (Rom 14:12 ).

What are you waiting for?

AL, Right on. So now that you have shared His Holy Words as a road map that would lead to pleasing our Glorious Lord. How many will follow that path or will they still continue on the road that's more comfortable? Do they prefer to be pleasing to their fellow man, not to offend or be offended? Is God truly 1st in their lives? Have you heard the common response to not wanting the truth?
