1 BEING A LIGHT IN A VERY DARK WORLD

2 1 Corinthians 12:8-11 “For to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, and to another the word of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit, and to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, and to another the effecting of miracles, and to another prophecy, and to another the distinguishing of spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, and to another the interpretation of tongues.”

3 “But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually just as He wills.”

4 Genesis 13 v “And Lot lifted his eyes and saw all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere (before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah) like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt as you go toward Zoar. Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other. Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord.”

5 Genesis 19 v.1 “Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom.” v.32 “Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve the lineage of our father.”

19 ROMANS 10:9 “IF YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THE LORD JESUS AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD HAS RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED.” ROMANS 10:9 “IF YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THE LORD JESUS AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD HAS RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED.”

20 1 JOHN 5:12-13 “HE WHO HAS THE SON HAS LIFE, HE WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE SON OF GOD DOES NOT HAVE LIFE. THESE THINGS I HAVE WRITTEN TO YOU WHO BELIEVE IN THE NAME OF THE SON OF GOD, THAT YOU MAY KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.” 1 JOHN 5:12-13 “HE WHO HAS THE SON HAS LIFE, HE WHO DOES NOT HAVE THE SON OF GOD DOES NOT HAVE LIFE. THESE THINGS I HAVE WRITTEN TO YOU WHO BELIEVE IN THE NAME OF THE SON OF GOD, THAT YOU MAY KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.”

31 C.H. SPURGEON The most terrible warning to impenitent men in all the world is the death of Christ. For if God spared not His only Son, on whom was only laid imputed sin, will He spare sinners whose sins are their own?

32 Romans 3:19,20 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

33 Psalm 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul

34 ROMANS 7:7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known covetousness unless the law had said, You shall not covet.

35 Ted Koppel host of ABC’s Nightline We have actually convinced ourselves that slogans will save us. ‘Shoot up if you must, but use a clean needle.’ Or, ‘Enjoy sex whenever and with whomever you wish, but protect yourself.’ No! The answer is No! Not because it isn’t cool or smart or because you might wind up in jail or dying in an AIDS ward, but because it is wrong! What Moses brought down from Mount Sinai were not ten suggestions, but ten commandments!

36 JAMES 2:10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.

37 GALATIANS 3:24 Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

38 ROMANS 2:15,16 Who show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or else excusing them in the day when God will judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ, according to my gospel.

39 C.H. SPURGEON I do not believe that any man can preach the Gospel who does not preach the Law. The Law is the needle, and you cannot draw the silken thread of the Gospel through a man’s heart unless you first send the needle of the Law to make way for it.

41 JESUS!!!!!! TRACTS!!!!!! JESUS!!!!!! TRACTS!!!!!!

42 MAKE A FRIEND BE A FRIEND LEAD A FRIEND TO CHRIST!!! A REAL FRIEND TELLS A FRIEND ABOUT JESUS!! MAKE A FRIEND BE A FRIEND LEAD A FRIEND TO CHRIST!!! A REAL FRIEND TELLS A FRIEND ABOUT JESUS!!

43 EPHESIANS 4:15 “...SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE…” MARK 16:15 “AND HE SAID TO THEM, ‘GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE’.” EPHESIANS 4:15 “...SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE…” MARK 16:15 “AND HE SAID TO THEM, ‘GO INTO ALL THE WORLD AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE’.”

44 IF THEY’RE BREATHING, THEY NEED JESUS!!! IF THEY’RE BREATHING, THEY NEED JESUS!!!

45 THE FOUR DEADLY QUESTIONS!

46 WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THAT?

47 HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT TO BE TRUE?

48 WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INFORMATION?

49 WHAT IF YOU ARE WRONG?

50 C.H. SPURGEON I would sooner bring one sinner to Jesus Christ than unpick all the mysteries of the divine Word, for salvation is the one thing we are to live for.

51 C.H. SPURGEON If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned and unprayed for.

52 C.H. SPURGEON Have you no wish for others to be saved? Then you are not saved yourself. Be sure of that.

53 “Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not a straw whether they be clergymen or laymen, such alone will shake the gates of hell and set up the kingdom of God upon earth.” John Wesley

55 1 Samuel 20:3 “…But truly, as the LORD lives and as your soul lives, there is but a step between me and death.”
