Acts 6:4

"But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the Word."



1 Timothy 4:6-16

" If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained. But refuse profane and old wives' fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness. For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation. For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. These things command and teach. Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine. Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all. Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee." 1 Tim 4:6-16 (KJV)

"Walking in Winter" By Craig Chambers

Friday, January 7, 2011
I always slow down in winter as if there is less people that need to know the Lord.  I just always assumed that people on the: street wouldn't stop and talk to me or want a gospel tract, after all it's cold.  However this winter was going to be different here in Vermont, I was going to carry the message of Christ to the cold corner were I street fish at.  Its several weeks before Christmas and I decide to try a new tract, Jumbo Christmas Cash (www.customtractsource.com). 

The first day I go is somewhere in the 20 degrees range so it's kinda cold, not a cold as Vermont gets mind you but cold none the less.  I have this corner thats by a small park and four way light. It's rather large area with plenty of room to move around I say this because I don't actually walk in winter I pace in winter.  When theres times of low foot traffic I pace to keep warm.  Well anyways this was a cloudy day but there was a lot of people out and to my surprise they took the tracts, they were very well received. I need to get some to stop and talk to me what can I do.  Ask a question, if you were to die tonight would you make it to heaven.  Worked good, had some good conversations about the Lord. So winter is okay to witness in, go figure?!  I continue to go out to my fishing spot but I do have a prayer request.  I don't have a van anymore it broke down for the last time and can only borrow my sons car from to time so its hard to get out. I hope to have a new van in February because I hope to have gotten enough money together by then please pray we can find something that will fit our needs as a family and of course my evangelistic pursuits as well.
 God bless

This post is a perfect example of how one inspired by Christ's love can make a difference.  Even in New England's winters, we can and must be a bold witness, love knows no weather or geography, it knows nothing of our money, transportation or health, it just loves!  Love loves!  Simple as that, please be inspired by this true story as I am and go be a witness!
Be Holy!
