0 Acts-style Evangelism

1. Proclaim the judgment of God on all mankind.
2. Proclaim the Gospel truth, which is that Christ has fulfilled the Scriptures.
3. Baptize the many who, convicted of their sin and of the truth of the Gospel, cry out in belief, throwing themselves upon God's mercy in Christ.

(adapted from p. 93 of Dr. Michael Horton's excellent work, The Gospel-Driven Life)

Why can't we do it that simply? If the Word of God is the power of God unto salvation to those who believe, why can't its simple proclamation (in the whole counsel thereof) be sufficient for us? God cannot be marketed. The Truth simply must be proclaimed, and the results left to God.

Hear more at this blog, or at Covenant Radio this Thursday as we interview Dr. Horton on the program. You can subscribe to the podcast here.
