Colossians 4:4

Colossians 4:4…”Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.” ‘It’ being the mystery of Christ, which is the gospel. This was a secret, which was hid in God from everlasting, and, during the Old Testament, was wrapped up in types, and shadows, and sacrifices, and is still hidden from the unbeliever. Only God, by his Spirit, makes it manifest in a spiritual and saving way. So we need to proclaim the gospel clearly, and pray that others in our church, especially pastors/elders would do the same. The gospel should be clear in evangelism, and from the pulpit in preaching, and in our church services. Evangelism without the gospel is not biblical evangelism. Sermons without the gospel are not biblical sermons. Churches which are not gospel-centered are not biblical churches.
