God has commissioned us, and has sent us, to share the Gospel to the world. The Gospel is the good news about Jesus Christ. Whenever you share the good news about what Jesus has done for you to others, you are preaching the Gospel. Tell others about how good Jesus has been to you, how he has changed your life. Tell others that when they accept Jesus as their Savior, he will change their life, too.
When I was a young boy of 11 years of age, I was under conviction of my sin, even at that age. I knew that sin was bad. I knew that when I disobeyed my parents that not only would I get punished by them, but I felt bad inside. I was under conviction because of the Holy Spirit speaking to my heart about my sin and what I had done wrong. I attended the morning service at First Baptist Church, Natchitoches, Louisiana and at the end I went up and talked to the Pastor and he led me to the Lord, and I accepted Jesus as my Savior that day. He shared the good news with me about Jesus and I was immediately born again! I was so happy that day!
Jesus has been my friend for many years now. He has been with me through many ups and downs in life. I was called to preach while serving in the U.S. Army. I was one of the founding members of Stuttgart Baptist Church, Stuttgart, Germany. When my six year enlistment ended I flew to the U.S. and moved to Greenville, South Carolina, where I attended Tabernacle Baptist Bible College.
I have been in the ministry many years now, serving the Lord. There have been times of sickness, and Jesus healed me. There have been times of heartache, and heartbreak, and Jesus comforted me and healed my hurts. There have been times of depression and Jesus comforted me, and then He renewed my mind with His Word.
Why am I saying all of this? I am sharing this with you because I care about you. God cares about you. He cares about your life. If you have no purpose in your life, if you have no meaning and don't know why you are here, come to Jesus. If you are hurting inside, you are heartbroken, come to Jesus. He can heal your hurts, and he can heal your broken heart.
If you have never accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior of your life, you can do it now. Being born again is more than just going to heaven, it is having a personal relationship with the Creator of the universe, the one who cares for you. Jesus tells us, "I will never leave you, nor forsake you. Come to him today. Give your heart to Jesus and let him change your life from the inside out.
The Bible tells us, in Romans 10:9 - 13
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Say this simple pray with me, "Lord Jesus, I know that I have sinned. My life is not where I want it to be. I repent of my sins and want you to change my life. I believe that you died and rose again. I ask you to come into my heart and be the Lord of my life. Thank you, Jesus for saving me."
If you prayed that simple prayer, you are now saved! You are born again! You have become a new creature in Christ Jesus.
As a minister of the Gospel, I welcome you as a new Believer! Angels are shouting in heaven for you! We celebrate you for becoming a child of God.
