How you can help save a dying world
September 13, 2012
To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some. I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.
1 Corinthians 9:22-23
Picture a winding road going up a hill. As you look at it, you notice its dangerous curves and foreboding cliffs. All of a sudden, you see cars navigating those curves, and most of those cars are driving off the edge of the mountain. So you’re put in charge of helping reduce the number of people who are driving off the cliff. What would you do?
Well, first, you might want to put up some guardrails. This would give them a warning that a dangerous cliff is ahead, and would probably help stop some of the cars before they actually tumbled over. Second, you’d probably create a good response team with state-of-the-art medical and rescue equipment like helicopters and ambulances, staffed with paramedics and doctors.
While you might not save everybody, you’d save some. And while most of the world today is headed toward a Christless eternity, there are things we can do, like putting up guardrails—active, healthy churches in communities around the globe. You can also bring in responders—those people who go out and take the message of Christ to the hurting and dying people of the world.
The task of taking the saving Gospel of Jesus to the ends of the earth is on us as the people of God. So let’s grow our local churches and send out those who will reach the hurting and dying around the globe!
HELP TAKE CHRIST’S MESSAGE TO THE WORLD BY CONTRIBUTING TO THE GROWTH OF THE CHURCH AND THE SPREAD OF THE GOSPEL.

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
