Deuteronomy 26:16-27:26; Amos 1:1-2:16; Luke 13:22-35

Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. 1 Peter 3:15

My wife’s grandfather was sitting on a bench one day. A young lady sat down beside him and said, “Do you mind if I smoke a cigarette?”. The wise man replied, “Not at all, as long as you don’t mind me telling you of the greatest gift God wants to give you”. In a gentle and reverential manner he shared that, “the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Rom. 6:23). Seize every opportunity to tell of God’s great plan of salvation. —Bob Cretney

Lord, lay some soul upon my heart, and love that soul through me;
And may I bravely do my part; to win that soul for Thee. —L. Tucker
