Why must I preach the gospel

WHY MUST I PREACH THE GOSPEL?

Why should I, as a gospel preacher, contend so earnestly for the historical faith of the Christian Church? “You should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints.” The contention that Jude exhorts us to is an eminent and extraordinary one. The word contend means to strive, to fight, to labor fervently; it is a contention which requires all our strength and utmost force, we are to be as those who fought for their lives, nay, that which was dearer than life itself, even the life of their souls.

Hear the words of William Jenkyn, Jude 3--“This imports a serious and weighty cause and ground for contention. It is for the Gospel that we must contend vigorously, fervently and with all our might. A lazy, slender, slight contention will not serve the turn. Luke warmness neither pleases our Captain nor prevails over our adversary. Holy fervor is never so fitting as in contending for a holy faith. Indifference better becomes our worldly contentions between man and man, than spiritual contentions between men and devils. We must contend for the faith of the Gospel against error universally and impartially.” “Moderation is not always commendable.

Moderation that hinders a real earnest contending for the faith is no better than loathsome lukewarmness. I fear there is much neutrality, sinful halting and indifference gilded over with the name moderation. He who is not for Christ is against Him. There may be a sinful, damnable moderation. Following Christ far off in this world is no sign that we shall be near Him in the next. No man will be afraid of being too professed a Christian at the day of judgment, or will think he has lost too much for Christ when he is to presently lose all things by death.”
The Apostle said that the mouths of deceivers are to be stopped, and gainsayers must be convinced. I know not how it comes to pass, but among many the opposing of seducers is either accounted bitter or needless; and it is still the policy of Satan not to permit a sword in Israel, [hence, do not unsheathe the sword of the Spirit, which is the pure Gospel of the grace of God].
Jenkyn, a mighty puritan divine, died in a London prison on January 19, 1685. We are told that when the news reached the court a nobleman in waiting had the courage to tell James II, “May it please your majesty, Jenkyn has got his liberty.” Upon which he asked with surprise, “Aye, who gave it him?” The nobleman replied, “A greater than your majesty, the King of Kings.”
