Saturday April 7th we at GLBBC went out preaching at the corner of Lyell and Howard roads. It was a bright but very cold morning. There must have been 13 disciples from GLBBC there sharing the good news that Christ Jesus has died for our sins and given us a way to gain entrance to the Heavenly plains which we do not deserve.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Such a fine message but there are people out there that totally reject such a message. Me, I don’t understand why they reject the message. Why would anyone be angry with a person who lived a perfect life? He did not hurt anyone, indeed He healed them! He showed by example how we should live our lives and attempted to show the pharisees the error of their ways. Nonetheless, they rejected Jesus ways as they do today.
All thirteen of us had personal experiences but I can only speak for myself: holding a sign on the southeast corner of Lyell Ave. People drove by me and with their windows rolled up all the way would yell at me negatively. Some take offense to such a reaction but Jesus said, “Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also” John 15:20. I prayed, “Thank you Lord, for that person was convicted in his or her heart”. Otherwise why such a reaction for simply reading a sign? Take heart people of GLBBC.
Come join us for street preaching and door knocking Tuesday, Thursday and Saturdays! You will have an experience that you will not soon forget, plus another benefit you aren’t even thinking about, by obedience to what Jesus commanded you to do (Matt 28:19,20), you gain treasure in Heaven for your obedient nature! You cannot lose, you’re in a win-win situation if there ever was one!
