When we rediscover the truth about biblical evangelism, something beyond description happens—the glory of Jesus Christ takes center stage. The brilliant radiance of who He is and what He has accomplished for sinners like you and me makes everything else turn to gray. Nothing and no one is of any importance in comparison to the Mighty One of God. Our sin, rebellion and unbelief which drove Jesus to the horrors of the cross are now seen for what they really are—putrid and damning. The needs and wants that cluttered and dominated our landscape are now subsumed in a newly found completeness in Jesus Christ. Any efforts we relied on to earn God’s favor, in light of the glory of Christ, are not only powerless, but also a massive offense to His marvelous grace.
This is the message we are to take to the nations. We don’t put forward ourselves, our denominations, our helpful strategies for life. No, we proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord with ourselves as servants of all for the sake of the Lord Jesus Christ and His kingdom. It is His glory that shines into the darkest hearts and rescues sinners out of the dominion of darkness and transfers them into His kingdom where there is only light. It is through Him that the child of God is redeemed and receives the forgiveness of sins. This is evangelism rediscovered.
