Lesson 16

Evangelism and Missions

The Presentation  of the Gospel

A.     Man must realize that he is a sinner (Romans 3:10, 23).
B.     Man must understand that God died for him while he was still a sinner, not after he cleaned up his life (Romans 5:8).
C.     Man must come to God with genuine, godly repentance . . . . . . . .(Romans 2:4, Acts 20:21; 2 Corinthians 7:10).
D.     Man must believe that he is justified by the blood of Christ (Romans 5:9; Colossians 1:14).
E.     Man must see that the payment of Christ's blood saves us from the wrath of God, which is Hell (Romans 5:9; 6:23; Revelation 20:14).
F.     Man must, above all, understand that it is his faith in the blood of Christ without any additional good works that saves him . . . .  (Romans 3:28; Galatians 2:21; . . . . . . Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5).
G.     Man must call upon the Lord to save him (Romans 10:9-13).

The Message -- What is Missions?

A.     Missions is ... the Lord burdening my heart for a young man who gat saved and got a burden for his sister. His sister got saved and got a burden for her cousin who got saved ..., and the chain continues on.

      . . . Missions is an unbroken chain of burdens for our lost friends, friend reaching friend for Christ.
B.     Missions is the heartbeat of God (John 3:16).
C.     Missions is a ministry of reconciliation . . . . . (2 Corinthians 5:18-20).
D.     Missions is evangelism (Acts 1:8).
E.     Missions is discipleship (2 Timothy 2:2).
F.     Missions is church planting - believers reproducing believers, churches reproducing churches.
