Communicating with you makes my day!

Evangelism 101 - c

We experienced another person accepting Christ for the first time at Hillview this past Sunday.  PTL!!!!!!!  God is good and has blessed us.  We need to continue to invite people who do not know Christ to church so they can hear the word of God.  With that said, I want to comment about people coming forward in a worship service.

The Bible says, "How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?" (Romans 10:14)  Now, I could get the big head and take a lot of the credit for the ones who come to the altar.  But is it really my ministry that draws them?  Here's what I think.  The vast majority of those who come forward and accept Christ can trace the credit back to the person who was a friend to them and invited them or encouraged them to come.  I just get to put the toppings on the desert.  It's not me.  It's YOU!  You make the impact.  You live the life.  You are the open Bible people see and read. That, along with the moving of God's Holy Spirit (which is essential) is what does the trick.  Then, they hear the word and accept Christ.

Matthew 5:16 "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven."

Let's keep the wave going.  Invite someone to church this weekend that you've never invited before and watch God do His thing!
