Ask Phillip - God's Sovereignty and Preaching?
If God is sovereign, why bother preaching the Gospel? The way in which God puts his choice into effect is through the preaching of the gospel, says Phillip Jensen. God could have chosen any way to save people, but has chosen to use preaching and evangelism. This means that: success in gospel preaching is not measured by number of converts, preaching is motivated by the hope that people may be converted and finally, there is no credit to preacher when someone is converted.
