Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Let us praise the Lord that he has given us another day to spread His good word. May the Lord unharden the hearts of the ones that He would have hear the word and come to Him today. For the work at hand is great but the laborers are few. There does not seem to be many spreading His good word like there was years ago. It seems that church is the only place that some choose to speak of our Lord and Saviour. Just going through life trying to be a good person is not enough. Jesus tells us all to go out and teach of Him. To go out was not meant to go out to church. Church is an important part of a Christians life but there is more to it. I have a friend that is at this very moment in a sanitarium going through a thirty day evaluation period. This was brought on by him preaching in public. Someone took it upon themselves to put him there. This happened in Campbellsville, Ky. He had an article written about him in a neighboring county, not long ago, telling of the work he was doing for the Lord. The evil in this world is great. Even churches praise his work until he steps on someone's toes. I spoke with him by phone last night and even in that place he is praising God and knows that he was sent there to witness to someone. He is a true brother in Christ and I thank the Lord for him. A good example of what is important to Jesus is in the scripture below.
38: Now it came to pass, as they went, that he entered into a certain village: and a certain woman named Martha received him into her house.
39: And she had a sister called Mary, which also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
40: But Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me.
41: And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things:
42: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.
