Back to regular blogging / Something for all of us to do on Tuesday!

10 Oct

For those who have been readers of this blog, let me apologize for not blogging more regularly. In the last two months, we have started our children into their new schools, purchased a home in the area where we serve, and moved in to that home.  Time to blog really hasn’t been there!  Now that life has moved into a somewhat “normal” phase, my intention is to begin posting each Tuesday and Friday on a regular basis that you can count on. Please subscribe to this blog so that you can receive an email each time a new post comes out.  Now, let’s talk about something really important…

Just this week I became aware of an emphasis that is taking place next week among many college students who are Christians.  Engage24.org is a great effort to encourage college students who are believers to share their faith in Christ with someone (or many someones) during a specific 24 hour period on October 14, 2014.  College students in Alabama have been participating in 24 days of concentrated prayer leading up to this day.  There are some very good and helpful resources on this website as well.  Our own Alabama Baptist State Convention has been actively promoting this effort, and I applaud it greatly.

Now, wouldn’t it be sad if our college students are sharing Christ on that day but the rest of us don’t?   Personally, I am committed to praying for and joining in this effort to engage the lost this coming Tuesday, October 14.  Just a few minutes before typing this blog post, I had the opportunity to share the gospel with a man who struck up a conversation with me in a restaurant.  People are open if we approach them with a humble spirit and let them know that we truly care about them. People are open to having a conversation about faith.  Romans 1:16 is a great reminder…

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, NKJV)

The gospel of Christ just needs to be shared.  Personally, I share it to hundreds of people every week when I preach, but I am more committed than ever to engaging people individually with the gospel as I have opportunity.  I hope you will join me specifically in sharing Christ on Tuesday, October 14.
