    Ecc 4:1-3 So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.

    Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive. Yea, better is he than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.

    Have you ever considered the lost around you that are suffering and in bondage to sin? Consider the oppression of sinners all around you. They are oppressed by Satan and the pits of hell have power over them. And they have no comforter, in John Chapter 14 the Holy Spirit is called the comforter, lost people do not have this comfort when they go through life.
    And yet we sit idly by and do nothing, we are distracted by our sports, by women, by facebook, by cars, by working, by things that DONT MATTER AT ALL! the church is asleep, while sinners are screaming at the top of their lungs on the way to eternal punishment, yet we stop our ears, or is it that we are just too lazy to hand out tracts? are we too full of pride to go out to the public places and cry out the plan of salvation?

    Pro 1:20-21 Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets:
    She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying.

    I am deeply concerned, deeply burdened. Today Fellowship Baptist College took a mystery trip, they took us to Downtown Indianapolis and to Cincinnati for various activities and to go sight seeing. I could not help but see the multitudes upon multitudes of people in the bondage of sin, countless slaves to ciggarettes, homeless people on the streets begging for money when they should be begging for Christ, we went to Cincinnati Reds game, the God of Sports and the God of alcohol were openly worshipped, I was able to hand out around 20 or so tracts between the 2 cities, I had 2 dollars in my pocket when I saw a group of about 15 preteen age kids, I asked if any of them thought they were a good person and that I would give 2 dollars to anyone who could pass the good person test, I went through some of the ten commandments and then preached the judgment of God and then preached Christ. It was my first time doing it and yet i knew it was something that pleased God, yet I am so convicted that I have never done it before, I am convicted that I do not do way more,

    Why is it that our lives seem to be consumed by everything but preaching the gospel to people? as we left the reds game, we saw a street preacher preaching to some people outside of a bar... It was so convicting.Brothers and Sisters, we must wake up, and Ask God to revive his church, we must tell everyone we can about Jesus, Tell your co workers! tell your family, Tell those random people you walk by throughout your day, hand out tracts to people at places you stop to eat. SHARE THE GOSPEL! Time is running out, JUDGMENT IS COMING! WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR TIME! Please let's not get distracted by petty things that have no eternal value.

    Psalm 142:4 I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.

    But there is one who cares Jordan

    For God so loved the world...

    Isn't that the truth.

    He lovers every single person, even the ones we would rather avoid.

    Well we went to Kings Island (amusement park) today. My heart was very stirred from the thoughts I was having last night so I decided today I would attempt to share the gospel with as many people as possible.

    I was able to hand out around 40 tracts to people, I also decided to preach to various sized groups of people using what I call the "Are you good person" method: the Methods involves walking up to a a group of people, or even a lone range, and asking them if they want to try and win a random amount of money and show them a cash bill, but I tell them the catch is that they must be able to pass the "are you a good person test", the test is the 10 commandments, I then ask them if they are going to be guilty or innocent when they stand before God, then I ask if they will go to heaven or hell, once I get them to acknowledge that they will go to hell, than I preach the good news of Jesus Christ!

    This method is easy and extremely effective in drawing people in to hear a presentation of the Gospel. The best news is that a Teen Boy named Austin accepted Christ today as a result of the efforts. Praise the Lord that he chooses to use unworthy sinners like me to point others to the Grace and Love that is found in Jesus Christ. Anyone can lead someone else to Christ, that is..if you really want to. Don't you?

    I am just amazed at how the Lord has been working lately. Today we had 2 people pray to receive Christ, one was a young woman named Alisha, the other a teenage girl.We had a bible study today with my coworker who got saved on wednesday, She has made the decision to be baptized so please pray for her that she not be distracted or discouraged from doing so, the Baptism will probably be Wednesday or Sunday. As we were back driving to the dorms we saw a young woman walking her dogs in the field next to our dorms, the Holy Ghost said go talk to her, so i went and witnessed to her, she said that God has been dealing with her, unfortunately she did not choose to receive Christ, her name is Megan and I ask that you would please pray for her. As I have been witness I am noticing that there seems to be a lack of conviction of sin and a lack of awareness on the part of sinners of their condition. Our greatest need today is for Holy Ghost conviction on sinner and Holy Ghost power in our preaching of the gospel. Please pray for the lost, please pray for me that God would continue giving me opportunities to share Christ.
