An absolute trust in God’s sovereignty does not preclude a passion for evangelism. Understanding the Gospel’s magnitude and the desperation of unbelieving people motivates preaching that neither pollutes the message nor manipulates the audience. Listen in as Voddie Baucham teaches how Paul’s style of preaching in Corinth should guide our evangelism today. He also shares his testimony and answers questions from the audience about the Great Commission, baptisms, and more.
1And I, when I came to you, brothers,1 did not come proclaiming to you the testimony2 of God with lofty speech or wisdom. 2For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 3And I was with you in weakness and in fear and much trembling, 4and my speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5so that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men3 but in the power of God.
