Preaching is a Public Heralding of the Gospel

Did you know that "preach" is actually a public heralding of the gospel? It isn't something we do inside a building to the same people over and over - that would be closer to teaching.

Here is what we find in the Strongs Greek definiton from the original text:

G2784 κηρύσσω kērussō kay-roos'-so
Of uncertain affinity; to herald (as a public crier), especially divine truth (the gospel): - preach (-er), proclaim, publish.

Here is what the bible says about 'preaching'.

How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
(Rom 10:14-15)

A street preacher can reach A WHOLE Lot of people with the gospel. Sinners are not going to walk into a church building any more than criminals are going to walk into a police station.

Take the gospel to the lost! Go fish for men! Don't expect the crops to sprout legs and walk into the barn because you painted the building!
