THE CONTENT OF THE GOSPEL CALL

And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His Name among all nations. beginning at Jerusalem.

- Acts 13:38-39

The invitation of the gospel is the serious, sincere, well-meant offer of salvation in Jesus Christ proclaimed to sinners in the preaching of the gospel. All are invited to come to Christ for salvation through a way of repentance and faith. That fallen sinners refuse God's sincere invitation and do not desire to repent and believe is not the fault of the gospel nor its offer, but the fault lies in the recipients of the invitation.

- Isaiah 45:22

- Ezekiel 33:11

Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

- Matthew 22:4

Why is mission work, the bringing of the gospel to all people, very important?


 

The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son.

And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:

And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

- Matthew 22:2-7

 

  • Recipients - Those who receive a certain item


  • Read Numbers 23:19

    God is not a man, that He should lie: neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? or hath He spoken, and shall He not make it good?

    How does the truth of God's immutability emphasize the sincerity of His gospel invitation and promise?
