The Bible is much like a magnet and the people are drawn to it, ” says Angel, 12. “We all have an option to stay in the darkness or become saved and go to the light. inch
Wherever you find the Bible broadly read and taught in a community, you find freedom. Most people don’t know that the very foundations of free communities have their roots in evangelism plus Bible teaching.
Regarding the effect on society of the Protestant Reformation that will began in 1517, Dr. Peter Hammond writes: “The now nearly universally acknowledged principles of spiritual freedom, liberty of conscience, the particular rule of law, separation associated with powers and constitutionally limited Republics were unthinkable before the Reformation.
“The Reformers fought for the principles that Scripture alone is our final authority, Christ alone is the head of the Church and justification is by God’s grace alone, on the basis of the finished work of Christ, received by faith alone.”
The difference between societies in which the Bible is widely taught plus societies where the Bible has been under control is stark and dramatic. God uses these differences to attract people to Jesus.
“One way God could use us is we could send out money to missionaries so that they can take more time there teaching, ” says Andrea, 10.
Yes, missionaries are on front side lines of bringing the good news associated with eternal life through Jesus Christ to people who have never heard this. Who can possibly calculate the number of universities and hospitals that have been started in the Jesus Christ, Jesus himself cured many people.
One hospital that attracts people to Christ is St. Luke’s Hospital in Thessaloniki, Greece. This mission hospital, started in 1973, ministers to about 2, 000 individuals each month.
“Our primary motive will be to provide everyone who comes into contact with our work an opportunity to hear and respond to the Gospel – our ultimate healing through sin through the death, burial, plus resurrection of Jesus Christ, inch said Tasos Ioannidis, president plus CEO of AMG International. “Often, we work toward this by compassionately meeting physical needs to open hearts to that message.”
This hospital has a theft issue that it actually promotes. Patients maintain stealing the New Testaments put into their rooms. “This is the only kind of stealing we promote,” said medical center director Dr. Demosthenes Katsarkas.
Cassy, 12, tells us another way God attracts people to Jesus: “The Holy Spirit also helps us go the right way.”
About the particular Holy Spirit’s work, Jesus mentioned, “And when he has come, he will convict the world of sin and of righteousness and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in me;” (John 16: 8-9).
Like a laser, the Holy Spirit focuses on Jesus. Refusing the present of eternal life or rejecting Jesus Christ as God’s just son who died and increased again so that all could have everlasting life is the ultimate sin. No bad thing has greater eternal consequences.
Please notice that the Holy Spirit convicts the “world.” This convicting ministry is universal. There are simply no exceptions. This is another universal method that God draws all people in order to Jesus Christ.
