I want to update those of you reading my blogs.  Many of you remember about the first time we had a traveling family of Evangelists, Agents for Christ, visit our church. We went with them to Market Square to share the Gospel with the Lost.

One encounter involved one of our church members(Linda) and the Agents for Christ leader’s wife confrontation with a demonically possessed homeless man. After the encounter, it left  us in amazement how many are in bondage to the Evil One.

A year later…..

Linda starts a new job working at the local Lifeway Christian bookstore. One day last week, Linda told me of how the man we met down by the mass transit bus terminals was shopping in Lifeway. She described his physical, mental and physical capabilities completed changed. He was cleaned up, a countenance that was of a new Christ believer and follower.  He was asking for help on purchasing a new Bible.

I believe this was a God orchestrated event for Linda to start a new job at Lifeway to have the Lord bring in the former demonically possessed man she attempted to share the Jesus come into the store saved and seeking to become an obedient to the Lord as a Christ-follower.  God wanted to show Linda how she helped in planting one of the many Gospel seeds in this man’s life. She was totally stoked about the occurrence.

Linda will definitely will be rewarded at the Bema Seat for her faithfulness in sharing the Gospel.  We shall keep praying for this man to grow more in the Lord.

Til next time….Blessings.

It was a blessing to have the Agents for Christ ministry return to Knoxville for more Market Square Evangelism. Friday night was a blessing to have about a dozen of us convene on Market Square. It was the First Friday/Movie night on Market Square. It gave the 12 of us(Agents for Christ, Pastor Brian, Elaine and her son, and me) ample opportunity to share Jesus, pray, invite people to church, and pass out TONS of Gospel tract to the mass crowd.

We came across a variety, and I do say a variety, of  the most unusual people. Everything from Unitarians, Denominational church people(i.e. unsaved people in the church), Bible believing brothers and sisters in the Lord, strung out on drugs people, New Agers,  Self-proclaimed prophets, a Russian Orthodox priest in his garb(appeared like it was more for show than to be actually out ministering….. which kinda reminded me of the priest in the Good Samaritan parable).

Elaine had a terrific encounter in sharing the Gospel.

Thank you Agents for Christ for coming back. It uplifted my spirits. Evangelism can be a lonely ministry. Many in the church use the cop-out of “I’m not called to be an evangelist.” This may be true, yet they forget that the “Great Commission” applies to ALL believers. I just pray for more to step out and start sharing their faith with those they constantly come into contact.  If  we can get excited talking to one another about every time UT wins a football game, then as Christians we should be excited to tell others about our Savior, Jesus Christ.  It can be as simple a leaving a gospel tract on a bench in the mall. If you cannot go and evangelize, then please consider praying for others and myself going out into hostile territory in proclaiming Jesus.  If you have the financial means, then please support us in purchasing gospel tracts.(The gift of Salvation is free through Jesus, however the gospel tract does cost money.) Please see me how you can partner in Evangelism: going out, praying for the Evangelist, help defray costs of tracts, etc. Just pray and seek God in the reading of his Word. Note: There is a Heavenly reward for those participating in Evangelism. So act now.(Read the book of Acts for more details.)
