“Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” (Isa. 53:1)
Mark opens up the Gospel record, “The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God” (Mark 1:1). We have the greatest message (report; doctrine; news; tidings) ever revealed to proclaim. We have glad tidings of good things (cf. Isa. 52:7; Rom. 10:15). We have the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His kingdom, the church (cf. 1 Cor. 15:1-8; Matt. 4:23, 16:18-19). Preach! Proclaim!
How shall they hear without a preacher (Rom. 10:14)? What if they do not believe our report? Some will not (cf. Rom. 10:16; Acts 28:24). Jesus faced the same but kept preaching (cf. John 12:37-38). In fact, the very words of Jesus will judge us all (John 12:48) so woe unto us if we do not preach the Gospel (1 Cor. 9:16). Preach! Proclaim!
God chose preaching to save those that believe (obey). He placed saving power in the Gospel. Let us get that beautiful Gospel message out to the lost and dead in sin (cf. 1 Cor. 1:21; Rom. 1:16-17). Preach! Proclaim!
