Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
There are many children that come for one of the services each Sunday. They desperately need the gospel. It is amazing to know the conditions that some of these kids live in. They also come once a week for a Bible study where they learn the Bible and have an opportunity to earn points to spend in our "store".
We also did a first time VBS this past July. Wow, was that a trying time! But kids came and kids heard the Bible taught and heard the gospel. It would be easy to perhaps get many of these kids to pray a prayer and then tell them they are on their way to heaven, but we are not interested in doing that. We want them to know who Jesus is so that they really know the decision they are making when they decide to repent and turn from their sin to Jesus Christ, the only one who can save them. They desperately need to know the love of Christ and to know that someone really cares for their souls.
I'm thankful that the Lord tells us to do hard things sometimes even though it may not be pleasant at first. We are pleased to be a part of City Baptist Church and look forward to what the Lord is going to do.
Psalms 142:4 I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.
Let’s tell them Jesus cares! And friend, Jesus cares for you too!
