Romans 10:14 says, “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?” Yesterday, Lucas Cecka gave the Evangelism Training message. His main point was that loving people means speaking the gospel to them.
“If we don’t open our mouths and share the gospel, we are not loving them – no matter what we are doing with our hands.”
He walked through the steps of how the gospel saves.
- Someone must be sent.
- They must preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.
- People must hear the gospel of Jesus Christ.
- Hearers must believe the gospel of Jesus Christ.
- Believers must call on the name of Jesus in repentance.
Lucas then asked the question: “So why don’t we share the gospel with people we encounter?”
- Loss of relationship.
- Lack of knowledge.
In the end, all of these fears are selfish. We put our comfort, our reputation, our friendships, and our pride above what matters for eternity. Ultimately, unbelief is at the core.
“This Christianity things – this Project – is not a game. Eternity is at stake here."
