“The Master Plan of Evangelism “
by Robert Coleman
I. Community Time: Brief Report Aim Leadership Team (Mike, Ted, Tommy)
II. Opening Prayers and Praise
III. The Master’s Plan (for World Conquest)
Robert Coleman quotes Karl Marx: “Philosophers have only Interpreted the world differently. The point, however, is: change it!” Jesus, the gospel, and Aim would agree-on this point!
IV. The Master Plan of Evangelism extracts 8 principles in the gospel:
Demonstration (next week)
V. God is a/the “Giving God!” (It’s his nature, essence, Name) in chapter 4-we are reminded of some of God’s gifts-His imparting gifts given to us like: peace, joy, the keys of the Kingdom, glory…What else?
VI. So, if we “receive” the great blessing of the gospel, salvation peace with God, hope love, grace, everlasting life, etc. from God through Jesus, what is it incumbent upon us to do with what God/Jesus gives us?
VII. But, how? Read John 14: 15-17. Who or what is Jesus referring to in the phrase, “another counselor/comforter/advocate?”
VIII. On page 62-63, Coleman points out Jesus’ compulsion for evangelism and our struggle (or crisis) with evangelism as he emphasizes a difference in Jesus’ sanctification vs. our sanctification. This is best explained in a footnote (2) found on pages 124-125 in the Endnotes.
IX. No wonder we are told: “Repent and believe the gospel!” (Mark 1: 15)!
X. Bottom line: Is evangelism a human undertaking/project/program or is Evangelism God’s divine on-going design/purpose for world conquest because His Nam/nature/love is that “He is not willing that any perish?”
XI. Closing Reminders/Prayers/Praise led by Stuart Royall
