A 60-year-old man has been found on the roof of his floating house nearly 10 miles out at sea, two days after the tsunami that devastated the north-east coast of Japan.
Hiromitsu Shinkawa must have resigned himself to his fate when he was swept away by the retreating tsunami that roared ashore in his home town of Minami Soma in Fukushima prefecture.
As the wave approached, Shinkawa took the fateful decision to return home to collect belongings. Minutes later he was out at sea clinging to a piece of the roof from his …

Mark 4;31-32
The first key to the harvest is the seed. Without the seed there can be no harvest. The word of God is the seed that must be planted in the hearts of men. There is tremendous power in the seed.Even a tiny seed can become a big tree.
John 4;35
The second key to the harvest is the season. Harvest can be done during the harvest season when the crop is ready to be harvested. If the crop is not harvested during the harvest time the entire crop will …

The notion that someone is not “wired” to be a soul winner is nothing more than a placebo. When one is filled with the Holy Ghost, they are endued with power to become witnesses (Acts 1:8). To not share Christ is tantamount to having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.

Churches should have a built-in culture of soulwinning. If reaching the Lost is not a priority in preaching and teaching through the church, soulwinning cannot possibly be the expected outcome. A church not being active in the Great Commission relegates it to the Great Suggestion, and God is called a liar. Build a positive peer pressure that “being part of this church means actively inviting people to it”, and you will find that soulwinning becomes the anticipated norm.

Psalm 126
1 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion. we were like them that dream. 2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter. and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen. The LORD hath done great things for them. 3 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.
4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south. 5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. 6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall …

Hug Grand Rapids!

I wanted to post about a great outreach we’ve been doing in our community for the last few years. It has been a hit each year, and annually we do more and more hugs.
For Valentine’s Day, our small(but big-minded) church buys bags of Hershey’s Hugs, thousands of ziplock snack bags, and confetti, and printed up business cards with our “Hug” graphic (you can download it, and several other high-quality, printable card graphics I designed by clicking here.)

We assemble over a thousand of these bags during a church fellowship time, putting …

By Richard Whitman
I recently was asked the question, “How long has it been since you won a soul to the Lord.”
At first I was pleased to answer, “Just last week.” After all, last Sunday we had a man baptized in Jesus name and filled with the Holy Ghost. Then I began to relish some other memories of similar weekend services. Unfortunately, I also began to realize that several of the ones that I had “won to the Lord” were not living for God now and so I questioned if I …

We can believe that we know where the world should go. But unless we’re in touch with our customers, our model of the world can diverge from reality. There’s no substitute for innovation, of course, but innovation is no substitute for being in touch, either. – Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer

If we’re not actually in the process of bringing people to Christ on a regular basis, we should be ashamed of ourselves. And if we ARE actually in the process of bringing people to Christ, we have nothing to be ashamed of.

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth where moth and rust doeth corrupt, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust doeth not corrupt.”
So many investments of time and finance in things of no eternal value.
When the trumpet sounds, Jesus is returning to take souls out of the earth.
