INTRODUCTION

You are studying God’s plan of evangelism for reaching the world with the Gospel as revealed in Acts 1:8:

-Jesus Christ is the content of the message.
-Disciples are the messengers of the Gospel empowered by the Holy Spirit.
-The whole world is the recipient of the message.

In the last lesson you learned about the content of the Gospel message. In this lesson you will learn about the messengers of the Gospel. The Word of God, God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and prayer all combine their spiritual forces to enable the messengers of the Gospel to bear powerful witness to the Gospel.
