to preach Christ's gospel

2 Corinthians 2

v17

For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

When we preach the gospel, let's make sure we're doing it sincerely, realizing that the Lord is watching.

v2
For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me?

I saw that, to some extent, Paul's joy and sorrow was tied up with the joy and sorrow of the Lord's people that he loved. (Of course, though, our feelings aren't supposed to be completely bound to other people, because our joy is ultimately based on the Lord.) We should really care about other people.

When we're sharing the gospel, or, especially, when we're discipling people, we should have a lot of true care for them. And we should show it by speaking the Word purely and faithfully.
