Luke 4:43 I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns as well; for I was sent for this purpose.
Here is Jesus responding to the people of His town, Capernaum, when they ask Him to stay and carry on ministering to them. No, He says, I have to reach others as well; they have to hear the message of the Kingdom as well.
Romans 10:14-15 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!"
Paul recognises his calling to go and preach. Do we?
