Then the Lord said, “Broadcast this message in the streets of Jerusalem. Go from town to town throughout the land and say, ‘Remember the ancient covenant.’” Jeremiah 11:6, NLT
In 1922, Pastor William Ward Ayer of Valparaiso, Indiana, was visiting the home of one of the members of his church when he was introduced to a new apparatus—a crystal radio. After a lot of squeals and screeches, Ayer, to his utter amazement, heard a man speaking from Chicago, fifty miles away. Years later as the pastor of a New York church, Ayer preached to a quarter-million listeners every week.
Nearly a hundred years later, Turning Point and many other Bible-based ministries reach millions of people every day with the Gospel. And there are many opportunities for us all to be involved. For example, a woman in Virginia works for a national rental car agency, prepping the cars for the next customer. She always makes sure to tune the radio to a nearby Christian station so the renter will have the opportunity to hear the Gospel, if only for a moment.
Whenever we find a way to share the Truth, however small the effort may seem, it’s a special delivery because our message is so special and it’s our privilege to deliver it.
God wants to use you to bring other people to Himself. Greg Laurie
