Take a Stand (part3)!
We were on tour in one of our larger cities and we went out to do street preaching one morning when I saw Hank. Hank was sitting under a bridge on the side of the road holding a sign. The sign read, “Will work for food.” I invited Hank to come have breakfast with our group while we talked about work. Hank was a hearty eater and was very appreciative for the warm meal. Another in our group took Hank to get a haircut and a shave and finally two others took Hank to get some new clothes. By noon Hank had rejoined our group and barely recognizable.
Our group was doing witnessing and street preaching in front of one of my friend’s soup kitchens as Hank approached, he was ready to get to work. For the next 5 hours we handed out gospel tracts, prayed with the lost and actually were used to plant seeds that day. We ended up getting Hank a room for the night and that way he could be out of the cold weather. Hank was one of our military veterans that had found themselves homeless and out of work, forgotten by our government and people. He was left to begging under a bridge to get enough money for food to survive.
The next morning Hank met us outside the soup kitchen and was ready to get started on handing out tracts, but Hank was not alone. With Hank were about seven battle hardened warriors all looking for help and work, some still wearing their old uniforms. One by one they all got food and cleaned up with new clothes and today those eight men work every day at the soup kitchen. Witnessing and sharing the gospel with other destitute people, these men have all taken up residence at the homeless shelter. As Hank and his friends get a little money in they give as we have given and thus keeping the command “love your neighbor as yourself.” I am told that the group has grown to 20 in numbers and each day they start out by praying together and reading the Bible together, they even have a bible study every day.
What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
Become a doer of the word and let’s take back our country!

A Fragrant Aroma!
God is always with us and God will never leave us! When you add to this...
No weapon formed against you shall
We start to lose our fear of man, and begin to rely upon, depend upon our Lord and little by little the confidence builds.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
When we become totally submissive to the Lord, totally dependent upon Him, we become conquerors...
Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Nothing can stop us, because nothing can stop the Lord...
You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
1 John 4:4
We overcome the world and then the Lord disperses us as a fragrance. We become the light in a darkened world. As we spread the gospel message more hear the word and more accept the Lord as their Lord and Savior, we become a fragrance that continues to spread.
Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.
2 Corinthians 2:14-15
How do you smell?
