To Obey or Not to Obey: That is the Question!

When Tony Miano issued a challenge on a recent Lawman Chronicles post, people here in Florida took him seriously!

In this video you will see a group of people. None of these people, save one, have ever spoken in an 'open-air' situation before this. Among this humble group are a former homosexual, drug-addicts, drunkards, revilers-let's stop've got the picture.

The whole point of this is that I would like to show you that there is nothing we lack in order to fulfill our purpose here-to glorify God!

We have no exceptional skills for this.

1 Corinthians 2:1-5: And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

Our knees knock together! But we pray for courage and boldness as Paul did to obey the Great Commission issued from Jesus directly to us. Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

We have everything we need right now to get the job done.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor abusers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
