Rewards Of Witnessing
For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to
glory [boast] of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea,
woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel! For if I
do this thing [witnessing] willingly, I have a reward
(1 Cor. 9:16, 17).
The rewards of witnessing are both eternal and temporal
in nature. Eternal reward centers around the word "willingly".
Bible doctrine in the believer's soul is what motivates him to
witness. It is this doctrine-- the Mind of Christ resident in our
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done
without HOPE and confidence.
