In the past two weeks I have had the opportunity to share the gospel, and as a result, witnessed three souls come to Christ for salvation. Being allowed to tell the story of God’s plan for salvation is such a humbling privilege. One of the three who saw their need for Christ took place over the internet. In the years I have shared the gospel, this was a first for me. I can’t tell you how happy I was to use this platform to share Christ. It was immediately apparent to me that even though I am told my voice will fade to nothing, I will still be able to tell others about God’s saving grace.
It is by God’s grace I am still able to preach and for that I am so very grateful. Preaching is one of the events that brings me much joy. I will deeply miss it, if and when the times comes. (Cindy keeps reminding me that the Lord is returning soon and I will not have to endure all this disease offers)
This week I was asked by the athlete director of our high school to speak to the baseball program. He and I have been meeting weekly for coffee and through the course of our conversations he asked if I would like to share with the boys. I jumped at the opportunity! He told me I could speak on whatever I felt led to share. What a privileged opportunity to share the love of Christ with a group of young men from a public school. At the conclusion of our time every young man who attended walked up and shook my hand, introduced themselves and thanked me for speaking to them. I was totally humbled when one said to me, “The varsity team has been praying for you and we will continue.”
Through all the storms, God is still providing opportunities to do His good work.
23 except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me. 24 But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.Acts 20:23-24
