Hi everyone, it’s just an idea but I’m sure it is something that God has motivated me to think about and I would like to share it with you…
I go to the Senior Citizens’ Center just about every morning, we sit and have coffee and I discuss Jesus with the more mature Christians or I witness to the Seniors who do not know God.
One of the biggest concerns the Seniors have is they can’t read the Bible because the print is so small. Also, I heard that you can’t get a simple New Testament here. It’s hard to believe but I went and searched for them and every Church in this town did not have a single New Testament! hard to believe but True Then I went to the Christian Bookstores around here and none of them had New Testament either!
So, I got online and did a search for Large Print New Testaments and there was one… It is a Large Print King James Version New Testament with Psalms for $5.49 each from a Christian Book Distributor.
So, I am thinking what if I buy as many of them as I can afford each month and started passing them out to people and leaving them in places I go? The more I thought and prayed on this idea, the more it felt right in my spirit.
Because I’m disabled I live on a limited fixed income which means I won’t be able to afford a lot of these Bibles, but I plan to get as many as I can. I worked out that if I use a tenth of my monthly income each month, I can purchase 12 Large print New Testaments to pass out. If I pray over each Bible and trust the Lord to lead them to the people He wants, this could turn out to be a very effective way to spread the Gospel!
If I’m blessed to afford more each month, I will, but if not passing out 12 Large Print New Testaments would be an awesome start in reaching 12 people each month for Christ.
West Unity, Ohio is perfect for a Ministry like this, there are a lot of places I can get to. One such place is Harrison Lake it is a camping ground about 8 miles away from me. They have a huge Pavilion and it would be a perfect place to hold Bible studies! Over the summer here, I heard that a lot of the campers wish they could have Church services without having to leave the camp grounds.
Slowly but surely, God is revealing to me what He wants me to do up here. Its coming in bits and pieces, but it is coming together.
So what do you think? Is this a good idea or not? I would value your comments and opinions, you can find me on this Link…
Update… I have already been encouraged by some Christian friends who read this message to do as I felt the Lord was leading me and with His help financially the first 36 Bibles came today… Please Pray for me as I start bringing the Love of God to His people up here. I never attempted something like this before and I’m very excited in being able to reach out to others with God’s Truth and in His Name, I would also still very much value your comments, opinions and advice.
Postscript …Thank you Bible Man, your heart focus is very encouraging and uplifting and I’m sure many will commit to praying for you as you serve the Lord in this way and as the Body of Christ we commend you for your faithfulness.
How wonderful that we always have His inner Joy in our heart and when we need reassurance, support, comfort and encouragement, He will give it in and through us, one to each other, we are His Body, Hands, Arms, Feet and Voice.
God’s work done in God’s way never lacks God’s supply…He is indeed God of the impossiable.
