Psalms 51:13 "I will teach transgressors your ways, and sinners
will be converted to you."
Ezekiel 3:18-19 & 33:8-9 "When I say to the wicked, you will
surely die and you do not warn him, or speak to warn the wicked to change his
way to save his life; the wicked will die in his iniquity, but his blood I
will require at your hand. But if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn
from his wicked way, he will die in his iniquity, and you will have delivered
Matthew 5:17-19 "[Jesus said] Whoever will break the least
of the commandments and teach men to do so, he will be the least in the
kingdom of heaven. But who ever will do and teach them, that same person will
be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 9:37-38 "Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest
truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. "Therefore pray the Lord of
the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the
nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of

commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
Mark 16:15-16 "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to

John 15:2-5 "Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh
away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring
forth more fruit... Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit
of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the
same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."
John 15:6 "If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch,
and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they
Romans 10:14-15 "How then will they call on him that they have not
believed? And how will they believe in him whom they have not heard of? And
how will they hear without a preacher? And how will they preach unless they
are 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!"
1 Corinthians 9:7-18 "Who goeth a warfare any time at his own
charges? who planteth a vineyard, and eateth not of the fruit thereof? or who
feedeth a flock, and eateth not of the milk of the flock? Say I these things
as a man? or saith not the law the same also? For it is written in the law of
Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn.
Doth God take care for oxen? Or saith he it altogether for our sakes? For our
sakes, no doubt, this is written: that he that ploweth should plow in hope;
and that he that thresheth in hope should be partaker of his hope. If we have
sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your
If others be partakers of this power over you, are not we rather? Nevertheless
we have not used this power; but suffer all things, lest we should hinder the
gospel of Christ. Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things
live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are
partakers with the altar? Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which
preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
But I have used none of these things: neither have I written these things,
that it should be so done unto me: for it were better for me to die, than that
any man should make my glorying void. For though I preach the gospel, I have
nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I
preach not the gospel! For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but
if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me. What is
my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel
of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel."
1 Corinthians 15:58 "Therefore beloved brethren be steadfast,
unmovable, always alive in the work of the Lord, for your labor is not in

redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt,
that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man."
2 Timothy 4:2-5 "Preach the word, be urgent in good season, in bad
season; chasten, reprimand, urge with longsuffering and doctrine ... be
watchful in all things, endure afflictions, doing the work of an Evangelist,
making full evidence of your ministry."
James 5:19-20 "Brethren if any of you err from the truth, and
someone converts him, let him know, that he which converts the sinner from the
err of his way will save a soul from death, and hide a multitude of
