What to Preach to Non-believers
Good stuff from John Piper:

Let’s do this inductively. I ask. You answer.
John 3:17, “God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”
  • Why did God send his Son? _______________
John 3:36, “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.”
  • Does not obeying the Son (e. g., when he commands us to trust him) bring us under God’s wrath or leave us under his wrath? _______________
  • So what did God send his Son to save us from? _______________
  • Is this a felt need among the unbelievers you know? _______________
What are the implications for the content of preaching and evangelism?
