I went on a short Twitter rant while listening to a sermon last night. The pastor was preaching about how we all need to come to Christ for forgiveness, but he didn’t seem to explain why.

I posted the captions below the tweets in case for some reason someone can’t see the images. (click the image to be taken to the tweet for your replying or retweeting pleasure)

Telling me I can be forgiven doesn't do anything if I don't know what I need to be forgiven from or why I should care. #usethelaw #wrath

Telling me that I need to be forgiven does nothing on its own. What do I need to be forgiven of, pastor?

Speak to me about the goodness of God and of His expectations of man, and how I've failed to meet them. Then tell me what I deserve.

Only then can the conscience be pricked and my need for a Savior be made clear. And even then, only by the Holy Spirit's work in my heart.

That was the end of the rant. However, I posted a funny I heard on yesterday’s Wretched Radio that was guest hosted by Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio. Both are great shows that I would highly recommend.

Does your pastor use the law in his preaching? Does he use it to prepare the heart for grace, or does he use it to put a heavy yoke of works around your neck? What do you do in your personal evangelism?
