“If you are a Christian, God is not punishing you when you suffer. Jesus died for you, so your punishment has been paid. You will suffer because of your sin, sin of someone else, or consequence of the Fall. But, God is not punishing you. So, run to Him & not from Him” – Mark Driscoll.

Prayer is the pulse of life; by it the doctor can tell what is the condition of the heart. The sin of praylessness is proof for the ordinary Christian or minister that the life of God in the soul is in deadly sickness and weakness – Andrew Murray

 
The Comfort of the Fire Truck

ListenPerhaps you don’t have an “out-going” personality. Perhaps you are shy, and you like to keep to yourself. A firefighter may have the type of personality that likes to stay alone in the comfort of a fire truck and read books, but if he wants to do what he knows he should, he must change that attitude. So, step out of the truck. Make an effort today to greet at least two complete strangers. When you walk into the grocery store, the gas station, school, or work, practice being friendly with people you don’t know. Make yourself say, “Hi. How are you doing?” Try it and you will see that it really isn’t difficult at all. Then be bold. Offer them a Gospel tract, and run if you must. Better to give it and run than not give it at all. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.

Where does your Christianity stop?

Every Christian needs to see this

A message to Christians

Whatever happened to Personal Evangelism?

I received an email yesterday with a sobering thought:

How many times have you wished someone a Happy New Year? Yet for many this year will be the time they go out into eternity to face the Holy God as their judge and will end up in hell. Every day 150,000 people die and most of them have never heard the gospel. May the Lord open our eyes and our heart and may we continue to strive to take the gospel to as many as we possible can.

Taken from The Way of the Master Minute 
Witnessing to Moslems

Listen

If you witness to a Moslem, realize that he will almost certainly acknowledge his sins, but will trust in God to forgive him because he says that he is sorry, and won’t sin again. So, before you open up the Law, tell him the story about a criminal who has committed a very serious crime. He says, “Judge, I am guilty, but I’m sorry and I won’t do it again.” Make sure that the Moslem agrees that if the judge is good, he must punish the criminal. He would be a bad judge if he didn’t make sure justice was done. He cannot simply let him go. Then take the Moslem through the Law, and when he tries to justify himself by saying that he simply asks God to forgive him, remind him of the story you told him about the good judge, and point out that God is infinitely harsher. Then tell him the good news of the cross. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
