He did it agian!

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.

I am continually amazed at what God’s word can do. I have given my life to the proclamation of the Gospel, the good news. It really is good news. I have been privileged to proclaim this gospel many times in the last 12 years. Sometimes its just a couple of people in a small group or even just me and another over a cup of coffee. Sometimes it’s before a large group. But it never ceases to stun me when people really do respond to this message of Christ. If you think about it logically its not very logical. To think we would need to release our lives to a guy who lived 2000 years ago. He never wrote a book or commanded an Army. He was poor. He was humble, yet behind all that He was the most courageous, powerful, loving being that ours or any other world has ever seen. And 2000 years later people still come to Him. Its because He’s alive and still moving among us. They are broken and in need. They know their failings. They know that they need a savior. Yet, when I see them come I want to stop everything and scream out, “Are you sure?!!!! Did you hear what I just said? You must totally give up your life to someone you cannot see!” And yet they still come. So we rejoice today that as the Scripture above says, God’s Word is alive! It is active, powerful and sharp. Once again today the simple message of the Gospel was proclaimed and 22 of America’s soldiers came to receive the greatest gift ever. I stand humbled and shocked. If you have prayed for us here, thank you so much! May God continue to bless the work here at FT Jackson. May He bring and end to the war. May He return to set up His Kingdom. Till them we press on and proclaim the Truth, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners and make them righteous in the eyes of Almighty God.
