how God has made a difference in YOUR life
"are you 100% sure you'll go to heaven?"
"what would you say if God asked you
WHY he should let you into heaven?"
,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.”
Therefore go and
of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matt. 28:19-20
All this is from
who reconciled us to himself through Christ

receive power when the Holy Spirit
comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8

who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named
, covered with sores
21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 “The time came when the
beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side
rich man also died
and was buried.
he was in torment
, he looked up and
saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side
24 So he
to him, ‘Father Abraham,
on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and
because I am
in this fire.’

INSULTS... are the enemies tactic to silence Christians
[his victory is the souls of men... the very people he uses to insult us!! ]
don't get angry at them... PRAY for them
"Devoted to prayer" - in position to be used
"be watchful" - seeking the leadership of the Holy Spirit
"be thankful" - keeps us encouraged
"proclaim the message" - put it into words
"speak it clearly" - and trust the Holy Spirit with results

will teach you
all things and
will remind you
of everything I have said to you. John 14:26

he will convict
the world of guilt in regard to
God's Good News ...now!
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look!
God’s dwelling place is now among the people
, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door,
I will come in
we will share
a meal together
. [NLT] Rev. 3:20
we "ignore" God
"do you sense Jesus speaking to your heart right now...?
come + FOLLOW ME = fishers of men
Why should we share our faith?
I came that they might have life and life to the full. John 10:10
God's Good News ...forever!
is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
