The Chronicles of The Best They Ever Had

Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. -Acts 2:43-47

Last night at VCM, TWO people got saved!!! It was our last meeting of the year and the seniors all gave their testimonies. There was an invitation to receive Christ and truly dedicate your life, and i found out today that TWO people responded. To understand the fulness of this look at this scripture--

John 15:
3Then Jesus told them this parable: 4“Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninetynine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninetynine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

That scripture definitely speaks for itself. This is the true, amazing heart of the matter, and it's wonderful!!!
Also last night, me and my brotha Ryan were going to dinner before VCM. We saw this guy who had come to VCM once and was really nice. We eat with him somtimes, and he was by himself, so when Ryan saw him he thought we should go sit with him. After a few minutes, Ryan asked him straight up, "Yo Geoff are you saved?" He was really unsure but said he wanted to know more about salvation, so Ryan got his phone number and he set up a time to meet with him later. So we went to eat breakfast with him this morning to talk about God and salvation with him. Ryan did most of the talking (he's good), and he was very receptive to it and, even after we told him a couple of times to make sure that he understands the seriousness and fullness of the decision, he prayed to receive Christ!!! God is awesome! Again, look at that scripture above!!! We could be wrong, but it does seem that he doesnt understand everything completely...but that's OK because we'll be meeting with him to pour into him through discipleship until the end of the year. This is definitely an amazing work of God!

Also, after we left, i got on my bike to ride to class. The devil thought he'd try to discourage me....i was going pretty fast and suddenly just crashed and flew forward. At first i was really worried cause it felt like a bad crash, but i pretty quickly found out that all i really had were some scrapes on my elbows and knees! My bike was also barely harmed. I guess the devil got frustrated and tried to do something to get me down, but it didnt matter 'cause he got nuthin on the Lord of lords!! It didnt get my spirits down or anything...i figure the scrapes are just my battle wounds.

These new additions to the kingdom are definitely things that i am so excited to be able to witness!! All the glory to God for choosing to encourage me with this! I hope you are encouraged too--God wants to reap a harvest in our lives!
