I continued down 8th and Main, and started preaching on Matthew, chapter 4. I declared, Jesus said “Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
After shaking hands with so many Mormons, we told them that we had a few questions about what was shared in class and they gladly answered them.
This night, something amazing happened that has never happened before. Two different people wanted additional gospel tracts to pass out to others.
By the public train, we split up and started sharing the gospel with those that would listen. There I met this wonderful man.
While talking with this man, Patrick brought up the fact that during the crucifixion of Jesus, the veil of the temple was ripped in half.
After we left this neighborhood, Patrick, Jaron and I, all went downtown to continue passing out the “Gospel of John” booklets.
The greatest joy we can have in our lives is through the love of Jesus. His love changes us to become men and women of valor.
One gentlemen stood there listening to the preaching, so I approached him. I asked if he was a follower of Jesus. His response was that he was Mormon.
There will be a day when everyone will be judged before the Lord, Jesus Christ. He can see the person we are today and the person we can become.
If we are following God’s commandments then we are also loving one another, including the poor and afflicted and following Him.
It is an honor to serve the King of Glory. God is all powerful and I am honored to follow Him. I delight to do His will.
Paul taught about people being divided in the faith. Some would say to him, “I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.”
As Jesus said, “the sheep follow him: for they know his voice”, I began to ask people if they follow Jesus. Do they know His voice and follow Him?
The wrath of God is upon everyone that doesn’t fear Him. How severe a punishment will a person receive in judgement if they were found disrespecting God in this life.
Jesus taught, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” The lives we are living outside of Christ will never save us.
The next lady we talked to had just received a pizza delivery. Upon meeting her, we asked if we could pray for anything specific.
It is an honor to serve my God, my King. I trust in His goodness to save me from my foes. When I speak through the Holy Spirit nothing can pierce me for God is with me.
The seeds we plant through evangelism are so necessary. Even these gospel tracts I passed out tonight are important in reaching the lost.
So many seeds were planted and lives were changed because God opened the doors. The Lord has done great things through me simply because I was willing and open to His counsel.
I want to share an awesome experience that I had tonight, while in the service of God. Some things happen by chance and other things happen because God wills it.
How blessed is the person who seeks after the Lord for they shall be filled. They shall be engulfed with the Holy Spirit.
Your promises, Jesus, make me whole. I trust that You can do all things in my life. For you “restoreth my soul” and “leadeth me in the paths of righteousness.”
There is power in the Name of Jesus. Lives are being healed. Sickness is being cured daily. Sins are being forgiven. Stains are washed away.
The Lord teaches us to follow Him and do His will. We are weak but He makes us stronger. Each day that we seek Him we are able to do good works through Him.
There is no other way to heaven but through Jesus Christ. The words of the Bible are our guide. Those that read God’s word daily will know the way.
Each of us poured out our hearts to God. I thanked God for His mercy. I thanked the Lord for giving these people open hearts to talk to us.
This is the time to make our lives right with the Lord. We must be familiar with what the Bible teaches or else we will be easily deceived by doctrines that resemble God’s Word.
After this wonderful encounter, I had the privilege to pray with a gentlemen that has a concussion. He also didn’t have a Bible so I gave him one.
One gentlemen I spoke with was Don. We must have talked for about a half hour about Jesus. He is seeking the Lord and trying to break free of his smoking addiction.
The second experience was life changing. Upon knocking on Victor’s door we were delighted to introduce ourselves to him.
Next, I met a gentleman, named Don, that was sick of living a life alone from God. He had walked in sin long enough and wanted to make things right, once and for all.
