Love the abode girls and thanks for the perfect party, most wonderful time of the year!
CONTEMPORARY EVANGELISM?The contemporary message of evangelism, is if Christians show lost sinner's how much they love them, then, they will rush to the local churches to confess Jesus and be baptized into Christ. REALLY? If Christians set a good example by living a good Christian lifestyle, then, men will rush to the local church, confessing Jesus and be baptized for the forgiveness of their sins. REALLY? What did Jesus say about evangelism?Matthew Matthew 28:19-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."(NKJV)What did Jesus say about evangelism?Mark 16:15-16 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.(NKJV)What did Jesus say about evangelism?Luke 24:46-47 Then He said to them, "Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, 47 "and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.(NKJV)On the Day of Pentecost the apostle Peter preached Jesus as Lord and Christ. Peter preached Jesus as being resurrected from the dead. Peter preached Jesus as a miracle worker. Peter preached to them that they had crucified Jesus. (Acts 2:22-36)Acts 2:37-38 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ""men and brethren, what shall we do?" 38 The Peter said to them, "Repent. and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of of the Holy Spirit. (NKJV)There were 3000 men who repented and were baptized into Christ for the forgiveness of their sins that day. Not one person said we became Christians because we saw how much Peter and the apostles loved us nor because they saw what a great Christian examples Peter and the apostles were setting. (they were cut to the heart because of the preaching)FAITH COMES FROM THE GOSPEL.Romans 10:17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.The Ethiopian eunuch did not confess Jesus as the Son of God nor was he baptized into Christ because he saw how much Philip loved him nor because he notice what a great Christian example that Philip was portraying.---- Philip preached Jesus to him. (Acts 8:26-39)Preaching Jesus is evangelism.YOU ARE INVITED TO FOLLOW MY BLOG. http://steve-finnell.blogspot.com
