Outreach Month

2013 started for us with a lot of blessings from God! Lots of prayers went out for God to rain salvations in Galveston and nearby counties. People went out in streets, parks, neighborhoods, shopping malls to engage the people in the city in spiritual discussions. Initially we thought that people would just avoid us and not talk to us. But we were surprised that we had a lot of deep conversations about God with people we had never met before! We did see a lot of new people join us in Church this month.

You don’t want to live a life now which will bring a lot of embarrassments latter!

Recently, someone brought to my attention Luke 16:19-31 (parable of the rich man and Lazarus) in a way I never thought about it before! In the parable, the rich man dies and is carried away to Hades where he was in immense torment. In his torment, he cries out to Abraham: “I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my family, for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’” 

Remember one day a lot of people (with whom you ate, drank, partied, spend a lot of intimate happy times or even those you briefly came across in your life) may think about you, while being in Hades, that you never warned them or told them about Jesus!! So make the best of every opportunity NOW to tell people around you about Jesus! Else, there may be a lot of embarrassments about missed opportunities latter!
