Gasoline and the Gospel

71 cars were lined up on the street this morning near my house. That doesn’t count the dozen plus cars already in the parking lot of the gas station. People are in desperate need of gas because of Hurricane Ida. It is a precious commodity indeed. Whatever it takes, they want it. The gospel of Jesus is far more precious than gasoline. Gas can run your car and generator, but Jesus can change your life for eternity. Yet, people would not dream of lining up to hear the gospel, much less come to church. Pray for the Spirit to open their eyes, to see their desperate condition apart from Jesus. They may not line up to hear about Jesus, but they will listen to you, their neighbor, friend, or loved one. Take them a can of gas if you have it. Above all, share the love of Christ with them. He is our greatest need at this time!
