Preaching Jesus Christ, and Him Crucified

I go back and forth all the time with wither or not I should tell others about my evangelism efforts or just keep quiet about them. When I do tell about them it is always for 1 of 2 reasons:
1. I believe others should take part even if only by prayer.
2. When I'm feeling down and in need of a supporting word.
Most times I do not tell what I'm doing for 1 of 2 reasons:
1. I do not do it to be noticed by men.
2. It seems that when I do tell no one really cares so why bother.
After a conversation I had yesterday afternoon I thought that it would be good and fitting to show and explain my evangelism efforts. The above video shows and the following words explain.

Yesterday there was a large family visiting our Sunday school class and church. The discussion in class was over 2 Corinthians 3:18-4:6. There was much being said in class about how we as Christians should reflect Christ into the world and how people should see Christ in us. As I often do I gave my perspective from m…

The Two Reasons I Preach the Gospel Publicly

Why do I go out and tell people about Jesus when the majority are obviously not even listening? Two reasons:
1. Out of love and thanksgiving for what Jesus did for me, He died in my place for my sins.

(Mt 22:37-40 [NASB]).

Have you loved God perfectly,God who knitted you together in your mother's womb and gave you life? Have you loved your neighbor as yourself, think about that, as yourself? …

God is Love

"The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love." (1 John 4:8 [NASB]). God is love, He is abounding with lovingkindness and truth. Jesus came into the world, as He told Pilate; "to testify to the truth" (Jn 18:37 [NASB]). "No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him." (John 1:18 [NKJV]). Jesus demonstrated love, He has declared God both in word and deed. "And Jesus cried out and said, " He who believes in Me, does not believe in Me but in Him who sent Me. He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me. I have come as Light into the world, so that everyone who believes in Me will not remain in darkness." (Jn 12:44-46 [NASB]). "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation." (Col 1:15 [NASB]). God is love, therefore, the greatest learning that a man can do is to study love in truth. "Love is patient, love is kind and is no…
