After having looked at the truly encouraging news of the authority of Jesus in His teaching, preaching, and healing in the last several chapters, it would be a mistake to conclude that this good news is meant solely for us. The reality is that there’s a world around us suffering amid sin and trials of various kinds. This world needs to hear the good news of the kingdom. They need to know that Jesus has authority over sin, sickness, cancer, disease, natural disasters, and even death itself, and they must hear the gospel in order to be saved. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to spread this good news.
