Intentional Evangelism

From The Alabama Baptist

From The Alabama Baptist June 15, 2017
     Sunday, June 4, 2017, was an exciting day for your Director of Missions.  I was able to worship at The Fellowship in Albertville, where Bro. Allen Atkins is pastor. Upon arrival, I was greeted outside the church by three greeters, who couldn't wait to make me feel welcome and give me a program for the day's services. Bro. Todd Smart, minister of music, led everyone in the praise and worship service.  What a great choir and Praise team this church is blessed with! The musicians and choir show by their music, smiles and enthusiasm that they truly love the Lord! I was blessed by this great time of music worship. Bro. Allen brought a very convicting message, simply entitled, "Free," from John 8:1-11. He did a tremendous job sharing how God, through His Son, Jesus Christ, can cover our sins with His own blood, to set us free from the penalty of sin. He shared that Jesus doesn't forgive excuses, but rather confession and repentance. He reminded everyone that the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, that leads to liberation and victory. He also shared that the devil weighs you down with accusations that lead to guilt and defeat.
     The joy in my spirit as a Christian came when he shared from Romans 8:1, "There is therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit." May God continue to bless The Fellowship as they reach out in the Albertville community with "Mission Albertville" this summer.  May God lead them to homes that need to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and may souls be saved as we all share the Great Commission of Matthew 28:19-20 together.
