Darrin Patrick – The Work of an Evangelist

Darrin Patrick – The Work of an Evangelist February 6, 2013

We are told to be humble but confident. We are told of the sovereignty of God, and our responsibility. We are to do the work of an evangelist but Jesus saves.

1. Attractionalism
2. Legalism
3. Individualism

2. Divine promptings

3. Divine appointments

4. Power encounters

"How does a dead man come to his senses? He got hungry and wanted to ..."

Jesus mugs you with his love
