God's Plan for Evangelism - Conclusion

So, wrapping up. Once you repent of your sins and believe in Christ’s work you can rest in Him knowing that nothing can separate you now from His love! And rejoice in that knowledge! The verdict of “Forgiven” will never change because it’s grounded solely and forever in Jesus: His death on the cross in your place and His intercession for you now at the throne of God.

For Christians the cross of Jesus is an immovable testimony of God’s love for us and His determination to bring us safely “home”.

But we have a job. Luke 24:45-48 45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 48 You are witnesses of these things.

God’s purpose is nothing less then the redemption of the world and that purpose is to be accomplished through us! Whether we preach or teach or it’s through our conversation around a meal with family, friends or coworkers. That is how God has determined to save sinners. That the Gospel comes from those who know the forgiveness that comes from Him.

There are lots of good works that can be done, but those things can be done by anyone. There is only one way to be saved. There is only one Gospel. And only Christians can tell it. That’s the most important thing we can be doing.

And one day we will be a part of the millions worshipping our king:

Revelation 7:9-10 After this I looked, and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10 And they cried out in a loud voice:

“Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.”
