Dear Bethel Family,
I trust your week was one of blessing. Did you get the opportunity to communicate Christ to someone? Every day we have the wonderful privilege of telling people the Good News! The wonderful news of Jesus Christ. So many in the world are lost and are on their way to an eternity separated from the One who loves them so much. Do you remember who first told you about the Savior? Christ tells us in Mark 16:15, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” How are we doing with that command? If we don't tell them about Jesus, who will? We have been given the very precious and priceless gift of salvation. We have been commissioned by Jesus Christ Himself to tell others about Him. Every person that has ever lived will spend eternity in one of two places. Heaven is for those who have repented of their sins and trusted Christ to save them. A true believer will show forth the fruits of the Spirit in their individual lives. (Galatians 5:22-23) Hell is a very real place that has been created for those who reject Christ and His offer of salvation. (Luke 16:19-31)
Lets be busy working for the Lord and telling others about Him. Ask Him to put you in contact this week with those who don't have a relationship with Him. Be bold in your faith and witness. Live your life in such a way that they may see Jesus in you. I'm thankful for those who dedicate their time in getting the gospel message out. This morning we are blessed to hear about the Gideon ministry. Many have come to know Jesus as Savior and Lord because of their dedication and concern for lost people. They are at work all over the world passing out the Bible in many countries. We will hear a report of what God is doing in the world as the time grows short. You will be blessed as you hear of those who have embraced Jesus because of the Gideon ministry. You will also have the opportunity at the close of the service to be a part of their work.
Have a blessed week as you tell a lost and dying world about Jesus Christ. Remember to spend time with Him every day. Read your Bible, pray, and communicate the gospel message to those that the Lord places in your life.
Soli Deo Gloria, for the glory of God alone!
May the Lord bless you this week!
