Welcome to our service today. It is great to have you here and we would love to invite you to stay after the service and join us for tea and coffee.
The early Church was committed to reaching the lost for Christ. We also must exhibit this commitment. It is only through Jesus Christ that we can be forgiven, saved by grace, and receive the promise of eternal life. For many people it doesn’t make any difference what you believe as long as you believe in something. But Acts 4:12 says “Salvation is found in no-one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
I read this story this week and was moved by the perspective D L Moody had on the world around him.
While speaking in London, evangelist D. L. Moody was approached by a British companion who wanted to know the secret of Moody’s success in leading people to Christ. Moody directed the man to his hotel window and asked, “What do you see?” The man looked down on the square and reported a view of crowded streets. Moody suggested he look again. This time, the man mentioned seeing people–men, women, and children. Moody then directed him to look a third time, and the man became frustrated that he was not seeing what Moody wanted him to see. The great evangelist came to the window with watery eyes and said, “I see people going to hell without Jesus. Until you see people like that, you will not lead them to Christ.”
