Text: 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 9:17-18)

Tweet: The God-called preacher doesn’t choose to preach, but is divinely compelled to preach, and can never be content doing anything else. Therefore, he can take no credit for carrying out his God-given commission under such divine constraint.
