Greeted by Grace like Rain – Part 1

“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
Philippians 1:6

8/6/12

In the hustle and bustle of that rainy day, as I waited for my brother to pick me up, I was given the opportunity to bless such souls as these and others who came and went as their duty called on them. In the betweens of phone/ intercom / radio calls from tenants/ guests and their ins and outs to go here and there or check in and out of the condo-tel, I preached His Gospel.

At the end of 2.5 hours of interchange and solid presentation of man’s depravity and the difference between Law and Grace, the 10 commandments and the finished work of Jesus on the Cross, four souls made the commitment to surrender their lives and have Jesus save and rule them.

Praise the Lord. I took a picture of them and you saw it previously.

Ronnie, Ronald, Marvin and Margie. The girl in stripes is Erna and she just missed the confession part because she was called in and out during the hours involved. I had asked Marvin to harvest the soul for Jesus. The other little guy is Garen and he is 19 and claims he is born again. They were so eager to hear God’s Word, they all so listened intently and asked questions especially the tall dark guy, his name is Ronald, the front desk super.

There are some not in the picture…and have heard bits and pieces of the lesson….just prayed for those who got saved to witness to them and share their new faith…

Continue to pray for the Philippines, that I may be given the continued boldness and opportunity to share the wondrous news that is the Gospel, that Jesus loves each one and He reigns forever and ever.

The Gospel

The Reason

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
John 3:16-18

The Promise

“…that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction…for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.”
Romans 10:9-13

The Response

“Jesus answered and said to him, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
John 3:3

“…Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. “Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.
John 3:5-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.”
Romans 1:16
