So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Galatians 3:24

I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. Philemon 1:6

4/20/10 Willie, about 50
There's a reason Jesus sent out His disciples to witness in pairs! Today I called Nolan, my longtime brother in Christ, and we agreed to meet at the grocery store to witness while shopping. Though he had to leave after two conversations, the encouragement I received from our short time together was enough to give me the energy and boldness to initiate short conversations with perhaps a dozen more people after he left. I have yet to fully realized the power of Christian fellowship. Before Nolan left, one person we talked to was Willie, a middle-aged African-American man who said he had no spiritual beliefs in God or eternal life, and that he was okay with the idea of just ceasing to exit after he died. After talking a while I asked "What if the Bible IS true when it teaches that we all will live forever, whether we are in heaven or hell, and we will all face God's judgment when we die?" (Hebrews 9:27) Asking this question gives me a chance to simply inform or remind people of what the Bible actually teaches, no matter what the response. It might seem like a harsh question - after all, does not God's grace lead us to salvation? (Titus 2:11) But how will we know God's grace unless we know His true opinion of our sin - revealed in His wrath and judgment? It is the Law of God that leads us to Jesus (Galatians 3:24) - the true expression of His grace. I believe in the will and power of the Holy Spirit to turn these conversations into seeds of truth that will grow to eternal life!  (1 Cor. 3:5-7)
