gospel of jesus christ, Psalms 34:8, tracts, witnessing
Psalms 34:8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Today I tried to witness to a vendor at a local Flea Market. I attempted to give her one of my tracts that I give out. It’s a tract I wrote about my own life and my testimony. She told me not take it out of my pocketbook and she didn’t want to hear anything I had to say. She said she’s been through a lot and doesn’t want to hear my story.
She was so upset that she walked away from her own booth to get away from me. I didn’t even hassle her or talk to her that long when I saw her getting upset. I shouted to her that I was going to pray for her anyway and she said ok but stayed away until I walked away.
This type of rejection doesn’t bother me anymore and I’ll do it again in a heartbeat. I felt so sorry for this woman. If people only knew how much better their lives could be with Jesus. My heart aches for this world…for the unsaved. If they would only taste and see that the Lord is surely good. I will keep trying to spread the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
NO JESUS…NO PEACE…KNOW JESUS…KNOW PEACE
Message for today: This world needs a Jesus tasting party…He is oh so good when you get to know Him!

Mark 16:15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
It is time to go into the entire world and tell all people….neighbors….friends….family….co-workers…acquaintances.…..and complete strangers about the good news of Jesus Christ. It is the time and has been the time since this great commission has been given.
In the past few months we have had, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, hailstorms, fires, extreme heat, and tornados. Many people have lost their lives and have lost their houses, businesses, cars and belongings. The emotional effect that all of this has had on people is tremendous. Right now we know that people need financial help to get back to a place of physical comfort…but people also need hope and encouragement.
This is the TIME for us Christians to be discerning, wise, spirit led, gospel spreading, love overflowing, encouraging, caring, helpful, Jesus imitating, people that God wants us and has instructed us to be.
What time is it? It’s time to tell others about the good news….John 3:16….so others might experience God’s grace and mercy for their lives. Many are upset, confused, and discouraged by all that has happen to them right now and there are many hurting souls that are looking for answers and help. It’s time to speak up…..to walk the talk…..let our light shine….lead folks to the light…our Lord Jesus Christ.
Mathew 5:14-16 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
To my Christian brothers and sisters out there…..please share your faith and the hope you have with anyone the Lord leads you to. I know it’s challenging to start talking about Jesus to people, but you are not alone in this….the Holy spirit does the big work….He’s already working on people before you open your mouth….we need to be ready, prepared and available. The time is now…..this is your season. The Lord gave me this message today…..God speaks…I listen….and share.
Message for today: Somebody is waiting for you to share your faith…..Your neighbor has been watching you… to see how you a Christian…. is handling your stressful situation….Your co-worker loss her home and is depressed…..how will you act….what will you do…what will you say…. What time is it?….look at your watch right now….that’s what time it is….yup….it’s now…Let’s roll!
