Gospel Grid by Will Galkin

gospel_gridSometimes Christians can feel overwhelmed or under equipped when thinking about taking the gospel to those around them. We can be burdened about everyone and end up reaching no one.  What is needed is a Gospel Grid. During the adult pre-service in our local church meetings we have been studying how we can reach others with the gospel.  Please download the PDF provided. This material is designed to help equip the believer with a biblical grid to assist them as they do their part in reaching the lost around them with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel Grid will seek to assist the believer by walking them through the following questions:

1) Who has God placed into my life to reach with the Gospel?

2) What is the mindset of those that God has called me to reach?

3) What is the gospel and how should I communicate it?

4) What is my plan to reach those around me with the Gospel?

Jonathan Edwards on the Pilgrim

15_view_while_hiking.jpgThe Christian Pilgrim was preached by Jonathan Edwards in 1733. His message is a challenge to those of us who name Jesus as our Lord, to live in light of another country - Heaven. I know this message has been a great challenge and a blessing in my own life. So I hope and trust that this will be both an encouragement, and an admonishment for your walk with Christ. May we live with eyes of faith; seeing things not yet seen. - Click here to read excerpts from this sermon.
   

Thankfulness

treewrainbow.jpg Thankfulness. It’s so easy when things are great. Hard when things aren’t. We have this little picture on the top of our bathroom sink that has 1 Thessalonians 5:18 . Sometimes I read 1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you and think “That seems impossible. How can I be thankful for _________?” This past month I have been doing a study on Job as well as reading in the Old Testament.

Praying Scripture
