EE June 2012

    While I have been very busy during the month of June, and Theresa and Matt have been away on vacation, work, etc…, we have still had some opportunities to share the Gospel.

    Last Tuesday evening 6/12/12 Theres, Matt, and I visited a family who regularly attends Calvary Chapel. They are believers. While not an “evangelistic” visit per se, it is important for those in the church, especially leadership, to regularly visit with members of the church. People may have needs, questions, concerns, etc… that never get attended to because they don’t want to bother the pastor, etc… The LDS church (mormons) have visitation teams that visit every single memeber of the local church every month. Everyone is visited EVERY MONTH. While mormons are a cult and have bad doctrine there is much we can glean from what they do in regards to fellowship.

    I had a chance last night to talk about Jesus with a business/friend of mine. I was wearing one of my “DO YOU KNOW” shirts and he asked me about it. Just the beginning of a conversation I have been praying about.

    Last week I was wearing one og the “Fair” T-shirts that say “DO YOU KNOW”  on the front and an older man in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot said to me, “do I know what?” I was caught off guard because I forgot what I was wearing. The encounter led to a conversation where I explained to the man that I knew I was going to heaven when I die. The man was 90 years old, a Roman Catholic who attends St. Peters in Antioch. He “hoped” he was going to heaven, but did not think anyone could know for certain. He believed doing the rosary, being good and going to church, confession, etc…. WORKS was the way to get to heaven. He got very angry when I said I knew for sure and quoted 1 John 5:13 to him. He eventually got in his car and drove away angry.

   Although we are busy there are opportunities everywhere. The world is full of lost people.  Pray and God will send you some . . . if you are willing to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with them.
