B. As God Sent Jonah, So He Sends Us

  • Rom. 1:14-17 We have been saved—others are waiting to be saved


14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.

15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

  • Rom. 1:14-17 We have been saved—others are waiting to be saved

B. As God Sent Jonah, So He Sends Us

  • Rom. 10:13-17 Men must hear the gospel to be saved


13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

  • Rom. 10:13-17 Men must hear the gospel to be saved


15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaiassaith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

  • Rom. 10:13-17 Men must hear the gospel to be saved
