January 23, 2023 - Good Morning! It’s Monday, January 23.
Yesterday, at First Baptist Church of Center, Texas, we welcomed a special guest - a representative of the organization called Campus Crusade for Christ. Actually, for the last ten years, it’s gone by the name “Cru”. Started in 1951, as a ministry to college students, Cru has worked, for over 70 years now, to spread the gospel message of Jesus Christ around the world.
In the 1960’s, Cru developed the gospel tract “The Four Spiritual Laws”. Over four billion have been printed. I remember using it when, as a teenager, I first experienced sharing my faith. Cru produced the film “Jesus”, the most watched movie in history, with over seven billion viewings, in over 2000 languages. In the 1980’s, I remember being on a mission trip to Mexico, when my team set up a projector in a small village, and shared the story of Christ with hundreds of villagers - in their language.
Yesterday our pastor preached on soul winning, on witnessing, on evangelism. He urged us to share our personal testimony with those around us. He inspired us to “tell the old, old story”.
Proverbs 11:30 - The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and they that win souls are wise.
Meet you back here tomorrow,
