Hit the Streets.....Why do we go?

Tonight we are going to Regency Mall. We have had several great encounters there. The team is looking forward to seeing what God will do tonight.

Why do we go?

We go because Christ commanded us to go and preach the Gospel. We share because we believe the message which initiates the action to go out and proclaim the truth.

Romans 10:14-15
How are they to call on one they have not believed in? And how are they to believe in one they have not heard of? And how are they to hear without someone preaching to them ? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How timely is the arrival of those who proclaim the good news.”

Keep fishin,

Better Job, Bigger House

What are our desires? Do we want to have a better job, a bigger house, thicker carpet, and more money? Are we controlled by the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life? Or have we been transformed from the way of this world by "the renewing of [our] mind?" When that happens, we are told that we "may prove what is good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God". So, ask yourself, "Are my desires in line with God's desires?" Am I "not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance?" That's God's perfect will. Is it yours? When it is- when your desires match His and you delight yourself in the Lord, you are promised that he will give you those heart's desires. - Ray Comfort
