What Are We Going To Do Now?

By Kerry King


We have just completed our gospel meeting with Welton Stoker!  It was thoroughly invigorating to hear the gospel preached in pureness and simplicity!  Brother Stoker brought six lessons pertaining to the gospel message.  The reason we preach the gospel is so that people will believe and obey.  For without hearing there can not be an understanding of what needs to be done on our part to accept the grace that God has given us (Rom 10:9-17).  The gospel plan that we need to understand is simple:


Jesus Came

Jesus Suffered

Jesus Died

Jesus Was Buried

Jesus Rose Again


It is by the grace of God we have such a great opportunity to serve a risen Saviour (Titus 2:11-14).  We therefore have the honor to be called the children of God and also have the responsibility to reach out to others with this wonderful message of salvation (Mt 28:19-20; Mk 16:15-16).  The question now is “What are we going to do, now?”

Over the past few months we have started sending the House To House/Heart To Heart publication to every household in the Tom Bean area.  I am encouraged by recent account of a member of the Tom Bean community who told a member of the church that they enjoyed reading the publication each and every month!  It is time we began, as a congregation to start talking to people about their soul salvation and the need to study the Bible. 

The fact that Jesus was willing to leave the glory of heaven and suffer the atrocities that led to His death on the cross, should motivate the members of this (and all) congregation to embark on a campaign to save the lost!  It is time to leave our ‘comfort’ zone and venture out into the work that Jesus left us with.  So, the question is:


What Are WE Going To Do Now?
