I’m Sending You to Open Their Eyes

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:02 pm by Dan Lowe

As a followup to my earlier post, I cannot recommend strongly enough Dr. John Piper’s recent sermon on II Cor 4:1-7 entitled “I’m Sending You to Open Their Eyes.”  It demonstrates clearly that a passion for evangelism is not quenched even though one holds firmly to the doctrines of grace.  You can listen to the audio, watch the video or read the manuscript here http://www.desiringgod.org/ResourceLibrary/Sermons/ByDate/2008/2723_Im_Sending_You_to_Open_Their_Eyes/

In this message, Dr. Piper gives “Ten Encouragements to Gospel-Telling“:

1) God uses clay pots (i.e. ordinary people like you and me.)

2) Get resources to share (books, tracts, etc…)

3) Know that God uses many influences.  (No work is in vain – I Cor 15:58.)

4) Be a lavish giver.

5) Find people interesting.

6) Be encouraged that you are not alone.

7) Invite people to church.

8) Fill the city with gospel teaching.

9) Use your giftings.

10) Read books on evangelism.

Read it and be blessed!!!
