Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God

From Series: Encore 2017

John 6:35-40  (ID: 1531)

Jesus said, “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws Him.” Since Christians are called to evangelize, we must ask the question, “If God is in control, then what is our role in the process?” In this message, Alistair Begg helps us clarify the balance between our responsibility and God’s sovereignty.


35Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. 36But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. 38For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me. 39And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. 40For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.”
