The Power of God unto Salvation


Today James & Daniel went out to do religious surveys which we use as a platform to share the Gospel door to door. 

They had the opportunity to have a thorough visit with a lady and her 84 year old mother.  It was so interesting to note how the GOSPEL affected both women.  Each time that James began sharing, the mother would quietly enter the room and just listen.  When James referenced Jn. 5:24, "Anyone who hears my word and believes Him who sent Me has eternal life and will not come under judgement but has passed from death to life."   The mother said, "You mean they won't enter into judgement?"  Just open, honest questions from a person who is aware of the shortness of her days and the sinfulness of her life. 

We are so thankful for the reminder that the Gospel is what saves, not our arguments or fancy speech.  The next time someone tries to engage you in a religious argument, point them to the cross and watch to see the Gospel affect them. 

Please pray for Teresa & Gina, who are Jehovah's Witnesses, that the Gospel will be have an effect in their lives.

A good reminder of how simple the gospel is and that God works to move hearts by using us and His Word. I am praying just now for these two women.

We will be praying for them. It really is awesome how powerful and attractive God's Word really is.
