I was up at 6:30 this morning. Had my quiet time, fixed Mrs. Gray breakfast, and then went for an 8 mile walk. It was a gorgeous East Texas morning. I went to see my nutritionist and weighed in. I have been bad since my surgery on my neck. The holiday season in conjunction with all of the family being here with all of the great cooks in our family and church it was more than I could stand up against! You see it really is not my fault! Anyway, I lost 3 pounds since last week and hopefully I'll get back into fighting weight here in the near future.
Last night was our weekly soul winning meeting at the Longview Baptist Temple of Longview, Texas. I went with one of my ten grandchildren Jordan Gray. Dr. Bob Gray II, pastor, and Kelly Gray are his parents. He is in the seventh grade and a great personal soul winner already. He led three to the Lord and God gave me two last night. I always enjoy going with my grandchildren. All of them are aggressive soul winners. I am so glad that they have a concern for the lost who have not trusted Jesus Christ to be the payment for all of their sins. It is not the church, baptism, communion, church membership, or living a good life that will take care of the penalty for sin. Only death can pay for death. That is why in I Corinthians chapter 15 the Gospel is defined as the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. When you trust Him and Him alone to pay for your sins at that very moment a spiritual birth takes place in your soul that guarantees you a home in Heaven when you die. (Romans 10:13) Gotta love soul winning
