Kjv 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Teaching them to observe. Not works! Picking up the cross is and act of faith and grace flows from worshiping in truth and spirit!
I went out to place two bibles where the homeless sometimes go. A man of African American descent approached. Can you spare a dollar ten so I can go downtown! I said can I give you a bible also. He raised up his hand and said I already have one one I placed before!
I gave him $1.25! He kneeled down before me and said yessir I am a beggar praying to the white man. I said get up and pray to Jesus He is coming soon. Yessir yessir he said I said may God bless you and he walked off towards a bus stop.
I guess God knew I needed some encouragement. My wife helped me drive and put a few out this weekend but I had two left. She said you ever check the trash cans? I said yes never found one yet! I always find awake magazines throw them out!
Sad I never find any other left bibles a track once.
I am here because someone gave me a bible once I read John 3:16 and told Jesus I believed and would do it His way.
I would like to think that I have met angels unaware and gave them a bible or a happy meal. I hope because God knew I was going to be there at that second that that man was with my bible from the past.
What he had in his hand was a instruction book to get to heaven. Funny God still knew he needed to get downtown and I helped him and in a way he helped me.
