<552> Thesis: The proclamation of the Gospel should be driven by a sure confidence in the God Who is behind the message. Introduction: When we were looking into the large pictures of Chapters 7 and 8 of Luke's presentation, we saw that the issues of "Love" and "Faith" were his two big ticket themes. Though both of these large ticket items are enormously complex, both of them are fairly simply boiled down to their essence: "Love" sets the final good of others at the forefront of its agenda; and "Faith" expects the details of that Agenda to fall into place as time goes by. As we move into Chapter 9, we find that Luke did not suddenly leave these issues in order to move on to something else. Instead, we find that Luke decided to press the issue of "Faith".
