Personal, cultural, and theological challenges often impede a preacher from being an effective ambassador of God. Alistair Begg explains that persuading spiritually blind men and women to believe and repent must take precedence over all other agendas. A passionate love for the Gospel will enable pastors to speak with clarity, authority, and a sense of urgency.
20Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
