A message by special guest speaker Chaplain Sayre, with Good News Jail and Prison Ministry at the Hampton Roads Regional Jail
How should Christians respond to evil in the world? We should be more active in trying to reach people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
God wants Christians to be more involved with missions. Chapter 16 of the book of Acts illustrates how some Christians told the gospel where God had placed them.
- In verses 1-3, 8, and 10, we see that God provides helpers in missions.
- In verses 6-9, God provided direction for the Apostle Paul’s missionary work.
- In verses 13-15, God opened the heart of a precious soul to the gospel.
- In verses 16-24, some people hindered the gospel
- In verse 25, Paul and Silas, having been severely persecuted, prayed and sang praises to God—demonstrating powerfully God’s grace in their lives.
- In verse 30, the jailer saw their powerful testimony and asked how he could be saved.
God wants Christians—especially in the bad times—to become more involved with missions.
