    A man can spend hours reading the Bible, other books, and listening to sermons, but not leave his house to advance the gospel. How will you advance the gospel this new year? As for me I will continue my street evangelism and open air preaching. I will also continue my apologetics ministry by engaging the various false churches in my area, but I may park on the Catholic churches since they seem to be the ones that are responding to my letters. Also I will continue writing articles and reply to emails via my website. For new ministry ideas I welcome what others say.

    The "gospel" is the good news that the Kingdom of God is available to all who care to enter it. Through His life, death and resurrection, Jesus has destroyed the power of sin and death and is now expressing His reign through the world in His ambassadors (His followers) and is inviting all to join in this new reality. Those who enter into His Kingdom and learn how to live as He taught will experience freedom from sin and will never die, although the physical body will eventually give out and be replaced with a resurrection body. We are called to embody the Kingdom of God in our lives, in both actions and words, living out our allotted days upon this earth in the authority and grace of the Kingdom.

    I wlll work with Jesus, with the empowering of the Holy Spirit, to demonstrate the reality on the Kingdom of God in the areas where I have influence (my kingdom):
    The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed, and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

    As I go, I will make disciples of all people - immersing them in the life of the Triune God - by teaching them how to do everything that Jesus taught us to do. I will trust in the presence and authority of Jesus wherever I go.​

    By handing out Gospel Booklets which are evangelistic, and ESV New Testaments. I will also spend time in personal evangelism, as well as inviting people to church personally

    They are $0.99 at this site:

    www.cvbbs.com

    I usually order about 20 at a time and then some other stuff as well.

    I also get evangelistic tracts/booklets from there-they are about $1.50-$3.00 or so each there.

    Grace and peace

    Hope to be faithful in my home (live out the gospel for my wife and child), and as I go (when opportunities arise to point others to Christ).
