One of the ways that I reach out to my neighbors is by providing free copies of God’s word. I have a stack of Bibles in our front window (visible from the parking lot), with a sign in front of them that says “Free Bibles, just ask.” In the last week I’ve given away two free copies of the Word of God.
Scriptural Principle:Isaiah 55:10-11
For as the rain cometh
down and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth
the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, and giveth seed to the
sower and bread to the eater;
so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not
return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and
it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
I get my copies of the Bible from the dollar store. They have King James version Bibles for $1 each. Small price to pay for such a powerful weapon in the battle for the hearts and minds of people God loves.
However, some people might be better able to read and understand if I was able to offer a more modern translation. If you know of a cheap source of modern language Bibles such as New King James, NIV, or NAS or if you would like to donate copies please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nothing strikes more fear into the heart of many Christians than the thought of discussing the things of God with family members who are unsaved. Nowhere, it seems, do we let our pride and fear of rejection stand in the way of God’s plan as greatly as with those who matter the most to us, whose absence from heaven would sadden us most.
This post is to congratulate my wife for her recent discussion of the truth of sin, death, judgement, and redemption with her brother-in-law.
Why not talk to one of your relatives about the truth today?
