The gospel, according to Paul, is an "APPEAL to reconciliation," not a mere tool to inform the already reconciled. The word APPEAL in and of itself clearly connotes the idea of a needed and expected response. "We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God." 2 Cor. 5:20 To make an Appeal: parakaleō 1) to call to one's side, call for, summon 2) to address, speak to, (call to, call upon), which may be done in the way of exhortation, entreaty, comfort, instruction, etc. a) to admonish, exhort b) to beg, entreat, beseech 1) to strive to appease by entreaty c) to console, to encourage and strengthen by consolation, to comfort 1) to receive consolation, be comforted d) to encourage, strengthen e) exhorting and comforting and encouraging f) to instruct, teach__________________ If the Gospel is sent with the intention to make an appeal for all enemies of God to be reconciled to God, doesn't it reason to believe that it is sufficient to accomplish that purpose?
