To Every Creature....

This morning we went out to share the good news that Jesus saves and invite people to our church. The Lord really provided a lot of "creatures" to share the gospel! We went down Farm Road 89; a rural rd. in Missouri. I think it is safe to say that we met more animals than people today.... One home had a German Shepard that I think outweighed me and possibly Chris! I didn't get a photo of him because I was too busy being scared to death he was going to somehow open my door and bite my head off. We didn't get out of the car at that home.....I am hoping the folks inside are saved already! I know the bible says for to me to live is Christ and to die is gain....but not for me today!

Next home we got to had 2 Rottweilers and an americanpit bull! We met the guy who lived there at the car and I am surprised Chris still has his arm after reaching it out and giving him a gospel tract!

Next we met a women with cows and chickens.

Then we came to a home that didn't appear to have a dog, but when the teenage boy opened the door and Chris began to speak with him we saw otherwise. They had a HUGE dog.

The dog followed Chris back to the car and then it decided to jump in with us and sat in the back seat in between Joshua and Noah! The owner then came out and somehow got the dog out after about 5 minutes! I think this dog must have understood the coming judgment for sin on this old world and thought our Honda Odyssey was Noah's ark or something!

Mark 16:15
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

And then you ventured to the fabulous south side of Springfield, and all was right with the world... :) I actually had a Jehova's Witness knock on my door this morning, but I was not quite prepared to greet her, so I didn't answer.

Carrie, I think of this scripture 1 Peter 3:15
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

I used to have the same feeling like you what if I don't say the right thing or I haven't studied their faith well enough to talk with them...then the light bulb came on! Share the gospel the same way to everyone!!
1) You are a sinner
2)The penalty is death
3) There is nothing you can do to save yourself
4)Jesus paid the Price
5)Turn to God and Call on his son to save you!
=) I had a JW knock on my door a couple months ago too =) I asked him if he was 100% of heaven and he said he hoped so =( so sad =(
