If God has predestined the elect, why should we evangelize?

Interrobang

Because we GET to! Because we’re told to. Because preaching the Gospel proclaims God’s glory! That’s what we’re created and purposed to do!

We don’t know who will or won’t be saved, and it’s not our job to save [or convince, argue, etc.] people into the Kingdom. We’re just charged with sharing His story and glory! Doesn’t that take the pressure off? Doesn’t that put it on?!

People are annoyed with Christians who “shove Jesus down their throats”. Well let’s quit doing that and start introducing them to Him!

John 6:40 & 44

 For this is the will of My Father: that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.
… No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him, and I will raise him up on the last day.

  1. Mark 4.. the parable of the sower.. first parable Jesus told.. Jesus said if you don’t understand this parable you won’t understand anything else I say.. We have no control over the ground, over what will happen with the seeds, we only have control over the planting.. the sowing of the Word. We’re farmers, not salesmen. No closing the deal, no high pressure pitch, just sowing seeds. Great post Bucky.

  2. Amen! And nothing I say in my imperfect witness can undo His sovereign election either! What a comfort when I see myself a poor example in front of my kids especially.
