One of my best in a long time

I got to go with our Quarry attendees to Centennial Olympic Park today. Engaged four people in conversations. With two of them I got to ask the “One Wish” question. Got to share the gospel with one of them using the wristband. It was a great day today. One of my best in a long time — because I was talking to people about Jesus!

Thanks for being an evangelist who does it in such a winsome way and equips the saints to do it. You are such a blessing to our team and to the thousands you are impacting  as you equip them using “One Wish.”

as something to cling to.
Instead, he gave up his divine privileges”

No title, no possessions, no rights! (PAUSE)

THE END

Christmas Song: ‘Mary, Did You Know’

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little child, you kiss the face of God.

Mary, did you know
That your baby boy is heaven’s perfect lamb?
The sleeping child you’r holding is the Great, I Am.
