evangelism is the issuing of a call to turn, as well as trust

January 12, 2010

Evangelism…means summoning men to receive Christ Jesus as all that He is—Lord, as well as Saviour—and therefore to serve Him as their King in the fellowship of His church…In other words, evangelism is the issuing of a call to turn, as well as trust; it is the delivering, not merely of a divine invitation to receive a Saviour, but a divine command to repent of sin. And there is no evangelism where this specific application is not made.

J.I. Packer, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1991), 39-40, quoted in Michael A. Robinson, God Does Exist!, Author House 2006, p.160
