Evangelism (Part 3): Lessons From Jesus the Evangelist

February 24, 2019 Speaker: Series: The Purpose of the Church

Passage: John 4:1–37

The main themes of John 4 are:

  • God’s covenant mercies extend beyond the nation of Israel.
  • The necessity of the New Birth, through the Holy Spirit, mediated through Jesus

Five Lessons From Jesus the Evangelist

 

1: Jesus evangelized the marginalized of society (1-9). So must we.

2: Jesus pressed the point that salvation turns on the Holy Spirit, mediated exclusively through him (10-14). So must we.

3: Jesus exposed sin, thus showing the necessity of the new birth (15-18). So must we.

4: Jesus pushed the exclusivist claim that the only worship God finds acceptable is “in spirit and truth” (19-24). So must we.

5: Jesus had a “ripe harvest” evangelistic outlook, an outlook that balances God’s sovereignty and human responsibility (35-37). So must we.
