A Beautiful Day In the Neighborhood
Never forget the three whats. What from? Believers are redeemed from hell and destruction.
What by? By the precious blood of Christ. What to? To an inheritance incorruptible, undefiled,
and that will not fade away.
— Charles H. Spurgeon
Today is a gorgeous day in Ghana. The sun is shinning brightly and sky is clear. We have just finished meeting with students in eight schools where most listened intently and hundreds responded faithfully to the Gospel.
So far since our arrival on 9 March we have preached the Gospel in 84 separate venues where 18,828 individuals have indicated publicly their “first-time” decision for Christ.
Some of you are asking, “Do we think all those decisions were genuine?” and I answer you the same way as always, “That is not my business.” I am thankful that I am not the one who judges the hearts of people. I don’t know if your decision was real either! All we can do is faithfully preach the Gospel and leave the results to God.
It is not the duty of the evangelists to “convert” souls. We do not even come with that in mind. We come rather in obedience to the command of Christ:
“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.”
— Mark 16:15 NASB
Our mandate is to go … and so we go. The message we preach is simple, it is the Gospel. The results are supernatural! All is a part of the sovereign work of God.
Keep praying for us. The warfare has intensified, but the Gospel is unhindered!
