ESH-16 140525AM Jesus came into the world to seek and to save the lost, and that is what it says as we open to Luke 19:10. Jesus spent three-plus years talking to groups, and individuals, pointing them to salvation. Then He died for sinners, commending God’s love towards us, as Paul said. That is the […]
EBIs-03 201022PM Isaiah 6 is God’s plan for His servants reaching each of their dying cultures for the past 2,700 years—including ours today.

There are 66 books, 1189 chapters, 31,175 verses and 810,697 words in God’s Word,
But only five of those words will determine if you are forever happy in Heaven, or forever horrified in Hell.

SALVATION: THE MIRACLE FROM GOD
Salvation is also the most amazing miracle that we get to see up close throughout our lives as believers. That we were even saved is in itself is a miracle of God’s grace; and those around us who are saved are also part of a constant stream of miracle we get to see and touch personally through life. Getting to disciple a miraculously saved individual is such an encouragement for our faith and walk.
From God’s perspective all humans are born into this world infected with a blinding, crippling virus that left alone: leads to eternal death in darkness and endless pain. So as God looks down He sees us all sitting blindly in the dark on the edge of a deadly chasm. Salvation is when He opens our eyes and turns us from sinful darkness lovers: to God loving and following saints.
Have you ever wondered how people in the Bible shared the Gospel, and did evangelism way back then?

This week we need to go onward to examine exactly how they communicated that Gospel.
