I thank the Lord for this beautiful night. To start it off, Chase and I were able to share the Word of God with Victor. In that small amount of time together, we were all encouraged by God’s teaching on worshiping the Lord God and not angels, saints or Mary. 5The Bible specifically teaches against worshiping angels. Chase then taught on following the true gospel and not being led astray by 3false prophets. False teachers encourage people to follow them but true men of God lead people to follow Jesus. Before I left, I encouraged Victor to read and understand 2the Lord’s prayer. We’d then discuss it when I pick him up for church on Sunday. After we prayed together, I headed over to Jacob’s house. I wanted to follow-up on our visit last week. I asked him if he had read John 1 but he hadn’t yet. I then went on to talk about Jesus. How being a Christian means to believe and follow him. Everybody is in sin and in need of a Savior. This brought up the discussion about homosexuality and what the Bible teaches on it. 4God does teach about this lustful act as a sin along with men lusting after women. 1A sin is a sin and when a straight person looks at a women to lust for her, he is committing adultery in his heart. The same can be said for a homosexual person. We love the sinner but hate the sin. We share the love of Jesus with them because they need Him, as we all do, to be made clean. He liked that we weren’t casting judgement on them but leading them to Jesus to do a work in them. After this discussion, I headed downtown Boise, where the Lord led us to pass out tracts at a gay pride festival.
Upon meeting with Chris and Keven, we prayed and then went off to share the good news of Jesus. Our walk started off with giving pastries to the homeless and praying over a homeless man. He was having financial issues but asked that God would help him. We were grateful for his faith and lifted him up to the Lord God in prayer. After leaving him we made our way to the gay pride festival. I had a mixture of devotional cards and gospel tracts to hand out, while Kevin passed out tracts. Walking through the festival you could feel an eerie feeling inside. These people are truly in need of the Lord in their lives. They are so lost and don’t even realize it. So there we went giving out cards and tracts to as many as would accept them. Most people took them but some threw them away. I was encouraged by hearing someone read part of the card out loud. One person, saw the card and said, “thank you so much”. While there, we talked with a church group that supported the festival. I encouraged them to know the Word of God. That it is good to accept everyone into any Church service but while people are there to teach them by the Bible. The Holy Spirit will then be able convict their hearts. I told the lady pastor that everyone needs Jesus. The gays do along with the straight. We all are in sin and need to be made clean through His blood. Our lust for one another will only destroy us. It was a great privilege to speak with her. Everything we brought tonight was given out. Thank You Lord.
Let us pray:
I pray Lord that people’s hearts were opened to Your words. Convict every one of the people we met tonight of their sins, no matter what they are. Lead us from darkness into Your light. I need Your light in my life, ever day of my life. I just wish more people could know You and be saved. I love You. Amen.
Let us read the Bible:

1Matthew 5:27,28 (KJV)
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
2Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
3Matthew 7:15-20 (KJV)
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
4Romans 1:26-32 (KJV)
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
5Colossians 2:18 (KJV)
18 Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
