The Apostle Paul was compelled by God to share the gospel (or Good News), saying, “How terrible for me (or “Woe to me!”) if I didn’t preach the Good News!” Indeed, he gave his life to tell everyone about the wonderful things God has done for them in Jesus Christ. God radically used Paul and many other disciples in their time.
