"The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; and shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth."
These passages spoken by Jesus, should be motivation enough to do whatever it takes to bring the gospel to the lost, in word and deed, by the power of the Holy Spirit.
"The diver plunges deep to find pearls, and we must accept any labor or hazard to win a soul"
This is our mandate to win souls, there is only one great commission, not two, or twelve. All else must come
secondary to the great commission. The Great commandment is to love God, and love others, if we love God, we will obey Him, and be about the Fathers business, His business is to seek and save the lost. The second part to love others is truly fulfilled when we share Jesus with them, if we love someone; we will tell them about Jesus.
By not telling the lost about Jesus, is worse then having the cure for cancer and not sharing it with those that
have cancer. You can feed the person with cancer, give them gifts, tell them they are great people, tell them you love them, but if you did all of this and not give them the cure for cancer, which you possessed, it would be complete hypocrisy, and shows in reality you do not truly love this person at all. True love, loves even when there is a cost. How much worse is it; when someones soul
is headed to an eternity in the lake of fire, where there is, wailing and gnashing of teeth, and we keep to ourselves the only way they can be saved.
"The salvation of a single soul is more important than the production or preservation of all the epics and tragedies in the world" C.S.Lewis
Let’s not justify our inactivity in intentional witnessing to the lost, it is time we as a North American Church, got
back to the main thing, to be,"fishers of men." Lets pray to God that he would give us a passion and fire for lost souls. No matter how God uses us, lets just pray and Go however, wherever, and to whomever He is calling us to. But inactivity is unacceptable, with the seriousness of the task.
We need to pray for the Holy Spirit to fill us with boldness and love to overcome the fear of man, fear of losing a job, fear of what friends and family will think, fear of failure, all of these fears which are from the enemy, are no excuse, the stakes are to great to allow satan to keep us from being a witness for Christ, for God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and sound mind, and perfect love casts out all fear. Let’s go and be an intentional witness for Christ, no reservation,no retreat, no regrets.
Street Church has witnessed 93 souls receiving Jesus, in the past month, praise God.
Here are a couple testimonies:
- Two young boys, one 19 and the other 14, ran away from home in BC, and came to Calgary. The boys were on the streets for 3 days when they ran into a lady, who told them to come to Street Church and we would help them and feed them. The boys turned around and this lady was gone. They came to Street Church and surrendered their lives to Christ, Monty took them to a burger place to buy them dinner, and a bus ticket home. There parents called Art the next day and told Art that they were born again Christians, and there 19 year old son had just left Bible school, and had rebelled, and brought his brother with him. They thanked Art profusely for sharing the gospel with here 2 boys, and getting them back home off the dangerous streets of Calgary.
- A man that received Christ a year and a half ago, came to listen to the gospel on Monday night outside the Salvation Army, this man was attending CSC, and Axis, but a few months ago he got hooked on crack cocaine. I prayed for this man, and encouraged him to run to God not away from Him, and get back into fellowship.
Live life in light of eternity
