We saw many homeless people during a Greyhound bus trip to visit our children in Houston this Christmas. This is a pity because nobody would have to be out of work if they knew what the gospel is and how to preach it (See NEED WORK? on www.preach-the-gospel.org). Christ pays wages for reaping in His harvest(Jn 4.36,Lk 12.31and1 Cor 9.14).
Every time we tell another the good news and they believe on Christ the Kingdom of God increases by one person. Then we can teach them to preach the gospel and to teach others to preach it(Mt 28.20). In so doing we increase the number added to God's kingdom exponentially (See DO THE MATHon www.preach-the-gospel.org.). After every person on the earth has the gospel preached to them the end will come and Christ will return and take us to be with him forever(Mt 24.14 & 30-31,Mk 16.15and1 Thes 4.13-18). This is "The blessed hope".
To preach the gospel to another simply ask them, "Did you hear the good news?" then tell them - "Christ died for our sins, he was buried, and he rose the third day (1 Cor 15.3-4)." To teach them to preach the gospel we give them a good news card and have them ask us, "Did you hear the good news?" and coach them to preach the gospel to us. It is not necessary to give them a card but it helps them to remember the good news (gospel). "
It's sad to see homelessness and poverty, but preaching the gospel to others gives them the opportunity to believe on Christ and be born of God. Then we can teach them to preach the gospel as well, making them rich. Let's turn our nation (and world) right-side up by seeking the kingdom of God (See MAKING OTHERS RICH and TURN THE WORLD RIGHT SIDE UP on www.preach-the-gospel.org.).
Read a one-page paper each day on www.preach-the-gospel.org to encourage you to preach the gospel and teach others to preach it
(Mk 16.15 & Mt 28.20).
Then tell it and teach others to tell it (and to teach others to tell it) as you go.
