Chapter News: Bois D'Arc Bash

The Greenville Chapter of FGBMFA sponsored the Godmobile for the Bois D'Arc Bash in Commerce, Texas on September 24, 2016. This was our seventeenth consecutive year to minister to the citizens of Hunt County and surrounding area. Many Texas A&M University Commerce and Commerce High School students prayed to receive Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit moved in the lives of these new believers. Here is a copy of our follow-up letter:


Thank you for stopping by our booth at the  Bois D'Arc Bash and taking the test “Are You Going to Heaven – 2 Question Test Reveals Answer.”


You received the “Good News: of God’s plan of salvation.  Sin separates us from God and we were waiting to receive God’s judgment.  But God through His mercy and grace provided a solution for the judgment of our sins through the sacrifice of His sinless Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  Jesus willingly shed His own blood for you and me and with His resurrection completed God’s plan for us to receive eternal life through Him. 


To receive God’s gift of eternal life we must:


  1. Accept that you need a Savior and be sorry for your sins.
  2. Believe that Jesus gave His life for you and was raised from the dead.
  3. Confess that Jesus is Lord and ask Him to come into your heart and save you from your sins.


When you turned from your sins and trusted/ believed in Jesus as your Savior, there was a supernatural change which occurred in your heart which the bible calls being “Born Again – a spiritual birth.”


As you prayed to God and asked God to forgive you of your sins and invited Jesus to come and live inside of you and be your Savior and Lord, you became “Born Again.”  The bible states in Romans 10:9-10 “If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with the heart that you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.” It is at this time that God’s Holy Spirit entered into you.


As you read the Gospel of John that we presented to you, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal and teach you God’s Word and apply it to your life.  The Lord Jesus Christ wants relationship with you and wants you to spend time with Him by praying (talking to God in the name of Jesus), and by reading the bible and following His Word.  As you do these things you learn better how to follow God’s leading in your life.  You also need fellowship with other believers in Jesus Christ.  Help strengthen your life in Christ by attending frequently a church that teaches the entire bible and ask to be baptized.  The bible (God’s Word) asks believers to be baptized as a picture for others to see that we have a new life in Jesus.


The decision you made to follow Jesus and receive His promise of eternal life is the most important decision you will ever make.  I pray that the Lord will strengthen you as you begin your walk with Him.  God is good and has good plans for you.  I encourage you to follow His teachings.  And someday in the distant future we will meet again in Heaven.


God Bless,
