Encouraging, Living, Reaching

 I am a debtor both to Greeks and to barbarians, both to wise and to unwise. So, as much as is in me, I am ready to preach the gospel to you who are in Rome also. Romans 1:14-15 NKJV 

Paul had a debt he owed the lost, and not because he had done anything to the lost. One way to get into debt is to borrow money from someone. But that is not what Paul is talking about. The other way to get into debt is to be given something to deliver to someone else. If I order a pizza online and pay for it, the pizza delivery guy owes me a pizza until he delivers it. God had given Paul the greatest message the world would ever hear, and told him to share it with everybody. Paul owed the world the message until he delivered it.

The world needs the gospel, we owe it to them.
