Eyes That See

“I Once Was Blind”

Pray for “The Woodchucks”

I wrote a brief blog the other day about the group of Southern students who went out evangelizing this past Saturday night.

Lord willing, we plan to make this a weekly occurrance- on either Friday or Saturday nights (and if the Lord blesses us with enough growth in numbers, we plan to split up and have some go Friday and some go Saturday).  Please pray for our group, “The Woodchucks,” that we would be faithful in seeking opportunites proclaim the gospel, not only collectively but also individually.  That the Lord would give us opportunities to proclaim the gospel as we ought, that we would seek those opportunities, and that we would make the most of those opportunities- for the glory of the Lord, the sake of the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, by the power of the Spirit, and for the good of those who will suffer eternal punishment without the salvation that Christ alone can give them.  I just read the end of the book of Colossians this morning, and I think that Colossians 3:2-4 is a good prayer for “The Woodchucks” collectively and David Hamilton individually:

Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving; praying at the same time for us as well, that God will open up to us a door for the word, so that we may speak forth the mystery of Christ, for which I have also been imprisoned; that I may make it clear in the way I ought to speak.”

Although my dorm room is quite small and I am often in “confinement” here, the imprisoned part doesn’t exactly apply.  Also pray that the love that we have for Jesus Christ would exude from us as we take the gospel to the streets of Louisville.  There is no way around the awkwardness and the differentness when proclaiming the gospel.  May we remember the amazing love that called us out of our sin, and may we not only proclaim the gospel, but may we do so joyously!
