Go And Share The Gospel

(John 4:35) “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” These verses have been used for centuries by Preachers to challenge God’s people to win souls and labor in the world for Christ, but because of our human nature we can grow cold to this calling and forget to think about the eternal souls of the people around us. Then, all to soon comes a funeral or a sickness that causes us to be concerned. In the above verse Jesus challenged his disciples on how to stay focused on the souls of men, for he just witnessed to a woman standing at a well about her eternal soul, and because he did she believed on him and her witness caused an entire town to come out to find him. Therefore, Jesus commanded; 1)Lift up your eyes. In other words, stop being so distracted and place your focus onto what is really important. As Christians it’s very possible to be more focused on our own personal life than the souls of men. God saved us not to just sit in church, or study our Bibles, but he saved us to be a witness of his grace to a world that is lost without Jesus. Therefore, 2) Look upon the fields. When Jesus said this, he was pointing to the crowds that were gathering because of the witness of the woman at the well. The fields were full of needy souls, just like a wheat field ready for harvest. You see, God needs us to go into these fields, like this woman and bring souls to Jesus, for they can’t find him without the gospel. Therefore, Jesus said, “I say unto you,Get involved in the harvest!

Faith That Removes Mountains

(Mark 11:23) "For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith."Over a hundred years ago, the great evangelist Dr. R. A. Torrey told the story of one little church in Maine that was dead spiritually. In fact, most of the churches in that town were pretty dead, but in this one particular church a few of its godly men decided to petition God for a miracle, and so they said, "here we are, uneducated laymen, but let us form a praying band, and center our prayers on the salvation of one man." So, they decided on one of the hardest men in town, a hopeless drunkard, and centered their prayers on him. To their amazement in just a week this man was converted. Seeing therefore the impossible become possible, they began to pray for another, and then another, unti…

Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life !

(John 14:6) “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Ever since the time of Christ, many people have accepted the lie that there are many roads to heaven, when in the above verse Jesus says  very clearly that this is not true. Either Jesus was a liar, or he as God in the flesh was telling us the truth. 1) He is the Way. In John 1:1-4, Jesus told us that he was the Word of God in human form, and not only was he the Word of God, but also the Creator of the world and that in him was “life.” God came personally into the world that he created to show us that salvation can only come through his Son Jesus, and no other. Yes, there are many other ways in life to follow, but only Jesus came back from the dead to prove to mankind that he was and is God’s only Son, and the only way into heaven. 2) He is the Truth. Not only did Jesus say that he was the truth, but that his Word is absolutely true, also. In this world there are a lot …

Giving God The Right Present At Christmas

(Matt. 2:11) “And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts;...” Christmas is all about the giving of gifts; God gave the world Jesus (Jn.3:16), and here we see the wise men giving gifts as well. I think that in  many ways, gifts are the real reason that the world enjoys Christmas time, but to those of us that understand God’s purpose in sending His Son Jesus, we love this season for a different reason. The Biblical account doesn’t say how many wise men came from the east seeking Jesus, but it does tell us that they gave three different types of gifts; 1) Gold. In Jesus’ day gold was given to honor new kings, and to increase their wealth. Gold also represents the very best that God had to give to us but also the very best man should give to God. 2) Frankincensewas the incense burned in the temple of Solomon. It represented praise, prayer, …
