Good News Must Be Shared!

“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
and he who wins souls is wise” (Pr. 11:30).

How do you prefer to describe leading others to follow Christ?

Maybe you would say, “making disciples,” “sharing,” “evangelism,” “witnessing,” or “soul winning.”

In whatever way you may say it and do it, you are obediently stepping out in faith, trusting in God’s Spirit, and humbly sharing the good news of Jesus in hopes someone else will know God loved them so much He “gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John. 3:16).

It’s just what Christ-followers do. We do it because we love Him and we love them (Mk. 12:30-31). We know how Christ has changed our lives and we cannot help, but tell others!

God has used Dr. Gray to influence countless people to turn from their own way to follow Christ. Not only that, but he has trained countless others to do the same.

Only God knows the number of people Dr. Gray influenced who believed the “good news,” turned to Christ, God forgave, and now have a relationship with God and a home in heaven!

Can you imagine His joy in meeting the Savior!

You can not only imagine it — you may experience it!

Christ died for our sins even as the Old and New Testament Scriptures describe and He rose again from the grave making a way we too, may escape death! Don’t let religion, pride, misunderstandings, and unanswered questions to keep you from humbly surrendering your life to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Finally, Dr. Gray was a brilliant man. But don’t think you have to know all the answers to tell others what Christ has done for you! Wouldn’t you like God to use you to share His love with others?

If I can help you follow Christ or share your story, contact me. If God would graciously forgive me and allow me the joy of serving Him — He will forgive anyone who sincerely surrenders to Him!

Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him (John. 14:6).
