I was up at 5 am this morning. I walked an extra 4 miles yesterday so that I could sleep in this morning and extra hour. I am retired or just tired? The crazy thing about this retirement thing is that I have only played golf three times since retirement. What is wrong with this picture.
I am preaching for Pastor Tracy Fowler. He has pastored for years the Heritage Baptist Church of Columbus, Ohio, and is doing a wonderful job of winning the lost to Christ. He and his dear wife Reese are great soul winners. When I arrived in Columbus and after talking with Evangelist Time Lee and his dear wife I had my picture taken with him.
Then I went to retrieve my bag when I noticed a sailor standing beside me. I greeted him and then struck up a conversation. I thanked him for his service to our country and asked him where he is going. He replied he was on leave for two weeks and was headed to West Virginia. After a little bit of conversation I gave him a Gospel tract from my church. I talked to him about going to Heaven and missing Hell through Jesus Christ. After a little bit he bowed his head and invited Christ into his heart. I gave him assurance verses and then turned to a man standing by the carousel and asked him to take our picture. The man said, "Yes!" After the picture I picked up my luggage and started to leave when the man who took the picture put his hand on my shoulder and said, "Thank you for caring about his soul and taking time to talk to him!" This man was a Christian and was grateful for soul winning! GOTTA LOVE SOUL WINNING!
