John 4:4-42

Christ came to seek and to save that which was lost. When we respond to Him, He comes to indwell us by His Spirit. He lives within to lend us His passion, give us His vision, and infuse a sense of mission into the very fabric of our lives. If Jesus Christ lives in you, it is His job to win souls.

Part 2: Gideon

Judges 6:1-7:25

The story of Gideon illustrates the fact that God calls unlikely people to serve Him and uses unusual methods to achieve His objectives. This way people are reminded that in the end it is God-not man-who is in charge and whose purposes are worked out.
