People sometimes ask me why I do what I do.
Simple answer. I believe what the Bible says.
I don’t say that to boast, because God has given me that faith, just as He has given you. But I do believe with all of my heart the following things:
- Life comes and goes very quickly.
- Life is “a vapor of smoke,” as the Bible says.
- There really is an eternity, and both heaven and hell.
- Only those who have put their faith in Jesus Christ will go to heaven.
- I need to tell that to as many people as possible.
Now that is not all that I believe, but those are some big truths that are at the forefront of my heart and mind.
I recently received this e-mail from Lisa in Philadelphia, where we held a Harvest Crusades event last year, that illustrates why it is important to preach the gospel:
“Where do broken hearts go, can they find their way home?” The answer is YES, if you go home to Jesus. Back to loving arms that help you see it through.
My younger brother went to sleep one night and never woke up. He was 23 years old and had just graduated from college. He moved to Philadelphia after he graduated to take a break before he would go on to fullfill his dream of becoming a pilot.
I found out the Harvest Crusade was coming to Philadelphia. My younger brother gave his life to the Lord and exactly one month later, God called him home on November 3, 2008.
My brother lives today because of this ministry, and yes, we do have a broken heart because he is gone but he is in the arms of Jesus and that’s where I will meet him again.
Amen to that Lisa. You will see your younger brother again in heaven, because of what Jesus did for him on the cross, when He died and rose again from the dead.
I am speaking tonight in the O.C.
Speaking of the resurrection, that will be my topic tonight in O.C. at our Bible study. My message is from our Essentials series and the title is “What the Resurrection of Jesus Means to You.”
I hope all of you in the Orange County area can come and be part of this. For more info, click here.
