A Little Mind Jogger …
“Some will, some won’t, so what? So Wait.” This little saying has stuck with me since September, 1990. Linda and I heard it when we were at missionary candidate school, preparing to go to Ireland. I often quote it to myself after a disappointing soul winning encounter with some sinner who would not (at that time) receive Christ as Lord and Life. What does it mean? As we witness, some will accept Him and some won’t. So what do we do? So we just keep waiting on the Lord anyway. It helps me to keep things in perspective, and it keeps me going in spite of the disappointments. Perhaps it will help you to remember: “Some will, some won’t, so what? So Wait.” Incidentally, if you faithfully evangelize someone, even if they don’t receive Christ at that time, you are still successful in the eyes of God. 1Cor 3:6-9 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
We had three prison revivals scheduled this month. Due to circumstances beyond our control, all three of these meetings were canceled. One of canceled meetings was to be held during our sending church’s annual revival meeting, so we were able to attend that. One door of outreach was opened up for us at Florida State University, home of the Seminoles, in Tallahassee, FL. This was a three day open air soul winning meeting at the large “Free Speech” area of the campus. There were three Rock of Ages missionaries and two volunteers involved from 10am to 5pm each day. Wow, what an eye opening experience it was! The overall order of events was for one brother to preach while the others passed out tracts and witnessed one-on-one. I must say, FSU is a hotbed of unbelief, and we never ran out of prospects! I was blessed to lead one student to saving faith in Christ on the first day. Overall, we passed out hundreds and hundreds of tracts, and had many personal confrontations with students and faculty alike. God alone only knows what the final outcome will be from this campus revival meeting, but I was blessed to participate. By the way, I’ve never seen so many people glued to their phones playing Pokemon Go!
I was blessed to hold one meeting at the Haralson County Jail. The Lord blessed, with three inmates coming forward to trust Christ as Savior. Please pray for these new converts to grow in grace, and for God to use them mightily in His vineyard.
Please pray for Pastor Keith Lee, Van White, David Roy, David Littlefield, and Megan Lee, all of whom have serious health issues.
We remain in Christ’s Intensive Care,
