Praise the Lord for the good turnout this afternoon as the Progress Baptist family reached out into the community with the “Good News” that Jesus saves! Because of the power of the printed page, hundreds of homes received a clear presentation of the gospel along with an invitation to visit with us at Progress Baptist. In addition, God gave ample opportunity for great conversations with others.
Too often, we make sharing our faith a difficult task. Certainly, Satan opposes us, and our flesh will get in the way, but just think about the privilege of telling someone that Jesus has the answer to the empty life they are living. And if they are without Christ, their life IS empty. If we’ll take enough time to listen (instead of doing all the talking!), most will even admit it.
Jesus REALLY is the “bread of life”, and we have the opportunity of telling other starving beggars where and how we received the Bread that satisfies! What a shame it would be to hoard the tremendous blessings God has poured out on us, His children! Let’s keep telling other beggars where they can find some bread. There is more where that came from!
