    • A little Sunday School girl’s wisdom...

    “It means feeling sorry enough to quit!”

    “Your sins may be blotted out... times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”

    Luke 24:25–27

    “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Ought not the Christ to suffered these things to enter into His glory?”  Beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.”

    Warren Wiersbe,
    “They had sinned against a flood of light!”

    1. God is long-suffering with lost sinners.


    2. True witness tells of sin & guilt and the “good news” of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.


    3. The way to reach the masses is by helping individual sinners.


    4. The best defense of the Christian faith is a changed life.


    5. Whenever God blesses, Satan shows up to oppose.

    6. God has promised to bless and use His Word!

    7. The name of Jesus Christ still has power!
