What a spring and summer we’ve had.  Record rainfall resulting in floods all over the state, tornados in different parts of our county, and a heat wave in July and early August.  Disaster Relief units were kept hopping for at least 4 months with feeding, mud out, and chainsaw crews working hard all around the area.

Now fall is upon us and it is time to set the vision for winning souls to Christ in the coming year.  Have you ever thought about that?  Have you ever consciously made a plan of how you are going to diligently seek God and be determined to share your faith with someone else?  If you haven’t you should. 

From the moment you finish reading this you should begin to ask God to change the way you look at things.  Ask Him to give you the desire to grow His kingdom.  Consciously think hard about who you might target in the next few months to be a witness to.  We all know someone who needs Christ in their life.  Be determined to find that person and begin immediately to pray daily for their salvation.  Ask God to give you divine opportunities to share your faith with the person you are praying for.

Don’t be afraid!  Don’t chicken out!  Do it!  The only way things in our country will ever change is if Christ becomes a factor in the lives of the lost.  If you have Jesus in your heart don’t hide Him there.  Unleash the power of God and let’s see an awakening in our county like never before.

Start by disciplining yourself to live in a right relationship with the savior.  He loves you so much that He died to give you eternal life.  Isn’t it time we show Him how much we love Him by obeying what He has commanded of us?   

You men can get a head start by inviting a lost person to the Kiamichi Men’s retreat September 25th, and 26th.  We will have a great time together and your lost friends can witness how Christian men enjoy life without the detrimental enticements the world has to offer.  They can hear first-hand how Christ has made the difference in the life of a sinner who lived enslaved to sin, but has since found new freedom in salvation.

You ladies have the same opportunity this year by inviting someone to attend the Le Flore Baptist Association Women’s Conference October 22nd, and 23rd.  Invite a lost friend to come with you to this great event.  The retreat theme is “The Wild Life: One Guide, One Goal, One Glorious Adventure!”  There will life changing opportunities for lost souls to find the one true hope of the world.

Please don’t plan what you are going to do this coming year without putting God’s kingdom at the top of your priority list.  Make a plan for Christ first and let’s do our part to spread the Gospel story.
