As a pastor in the Presbyterian tradition and a teacher of evangelism, the tension between human free will and God’s sovereignty is one that comes up so regularly.
If God elects, why bother with evangelism?
My simple answer to that is:
We are commanded to go and make disciples.
But I go beyond being commanded.
I share because I can’t believe what an outrageous grace has been offered to me.
It’s a deal that seems too good to be true. When I realize what God has done for me, a passion to talk about it rises from within my heart.
Put simply: I’m excited about Jesus! I want others to know.
