Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.
- Colossians 1:28-29
The Bible's call to PROCLAIM is rooted in the new identity we have as the people of God. We find from 1 Peter 2:9 that "We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, and a holy nation, that we might PROCLAIM the praises of Him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light."
This mandate underscores the Christian responsibility to share the transformative message of salvation, love, and hope with the world, reflecting God's heart for all people.
