I will have to postpone the live Zoom Bible study until May, but we can talk about the subject matter NOW. In the first half of this episode I will talk about the foreign film, The Lives of Others. It's a moving story of how a secret police spy becomes sympathetic to his subjects and starts covering for them. The second half is about your mission to the Promised Land.
Soon I am going to be having a zoom Bible study called the long game. It's about not letting things sneak up on us. Is time to do the important things before they become urgent. In case you hadn't noticed right now things are getting pretty urgent. But we can prepare for the future.
8200 people per day die across the US, but the only ones we seem to care about or the Thousand or so who died of Coronavirus. Meanwhile, all of these people slip into eternity. Most of them are unprepared. What are we doing about this?

Some people have wrecked their reputation and now we are suffering for it. Social media platforms are under Fire and being taken down, keeping us from sharing ideas with one another. Don't be part of the problem! Guard your reputation jealously, but make sure you spend it on the right thing. That would be the gospel.
This episode deals with the struggle to stay on message with the Gospel. It is so easy to get diverted by politics. And yet we cannot just ignore politics. We must connect the dots between the Gospel and social issues.
Do you understand what Jesus saved you from, and does your love for Him show it? Has He changed your life, or does He just occupy dusty corner? Evangelism does not end at getting people saved. It includes making them into disciples.
Social media is becoming so censorious that we need to go back to print and personal appearances. And we can't wait for our current leaders to give us orders. We need to be the leaders. Prepare yourself to be a light to others!
