Exalting Christ and Loving People


The gift of preaching is the ability to communicate God’s word in an inspired way that convinces unbelievers and both challenges and comforts believers. People with this gift have the ability to persuasively declare God’s will.

“Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear” (2 Timothy 4:2–3).
