Jesus Came to do God’s Will

My work would not be possible without the generous donations I receive. Thank you for your continued support through these difficult times. So long as I am able to, and God allows me to, I will continue to go out into the world to do God’s work and obey the Great Commission.

Jesus came to earth to do the will of the Father and to glorify Him.  Jesus delights to do the will of the Father.  (Heb 10:7)   Just as much as God the Father loves Jesus, Jesus loves those that are Christians. (John 15:9) God gave his only Son for us.  Jesus took the punishment for our iniquities.

 John 12-25 ““This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose Me but I chose you and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. 17 This I command you, that you love one another.

18 If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well. 25 But they have done this to fulfill the word that is written in their Law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’”

We are called to go make disciples.  We are called to read God’s word and obey it.  We are to pray and rely on God.  We need to be living holy lives. 

No matter what is going on in the world, we need to be about the Father’s business. 

Sharing the gospel this month has been wonderful.  I have shared the gospel with so many students.  I have been able to talk to just as many students as before the pandemic.  There are fewer students on campus to get tracts but more students are willing to hear the gospel. 

I shared the gospel one to one with about 15 people at Slippery Rock University in 1 day. There are very few people up here and I talked to almost everyone that walked by me except when I was talking.
My favorite conversation was with a young lady that grew up in a non-religious house. She had never heard the gospel and was very interested. She did not know where to start so she will be joining me for Bible Study.  Pray for her.

The one young man asked me if he could just continue in sin after repenting and trusting Jesus. I explained he did not understand repentance. A person who is born again is filled with the Holy Spirit and is given a new heart and will move in the direction of Holiness out of gratitude for what Jesus has done for them.


day at Pitt, we talked to people that believe me just telling the truth is harmful to them. I explained that there is only 1 way to heaven and
Muhammad and Buddha and others would not be in heaven. The one guy was very mad at me. He believes that as long as you are a good Muslim or do a
good job following whatever it is that you believe, then you get to heaven. He believes that lots of people earn heaven by doing lots of good deeds and being loving. I explained that God is just and so there is a penalty that has to be paid for sin. If a person did not repent and trust Jesus to pay their fine they could not get to heaven. (Yes before
Jesus those that trusted a messiah is coming and God would provide also
are in heaven.) Most people do not understand that God is Holy. One lie earns hell for eternity. I was told that non-Christians do lots of good deeds and earn heaven.
Here is a quote from Westminster Catechism of Faith 16.7
“Works done by unregenerate men although for the matter of them they may be things which God commands and of good use both to themselves and others: yet, because they proceed not from a heart purified by faith; nor are done in the right manner, according to the Word; nor to the right the end, the glory of God, they are therefore sinful, and cannot please God or make man meet to receive grace from God and their neglect of them is more sinful and displeasing unto God.”

For good works to be good they need to have the following:
1. done by a heart purified by faith
2. done in obedience to God’s word
3. done having the right end in mind, the glory of God
-John Frame (The Doctrine of the Christian Life)
need to be explaining to people the Holiness of God. People need an understanding, their good deeds are not going to earn them heaven.
Christianity is exclusive and it is good. You are allowed to make true statements. There is nothing wrong with saying there is only one way to heaven. Jesus said that he was the only way. Logically only one of the religions can be right.
