My family and I are vacationing hear in Clearwater Beach, FL.  Why Clearwater Beach?  My daughter Ashley is spending her Summer here on a Summer Project with Campus Crusade for Christ.  For 13 weeks 38 college students have come here and found jobs and spend time working, being discipled by CCC staff and doing outreach on the weekends.  It has been exciting to listen to these students talk about opportunities they have had the first 6 weeks, telling others about Christ.  Ashley called home the first week because she was so excited that she and a guy got to share the Four Spiritual Laws with a man on the beach.  http://www.greatcom.org/english/four.htm

Back in November my 2 daughters traveled with me to Turkey.  While there we took a trip to Izmer and visited the area known as Ephesus in the Bible.  Much of modern day Turkey is the location of cities mentioned in the New Testament.  While there we walked areas where Paul walked and veiwed the outdoor theatre where Paul wanted to preach the Gospel.  His friends would not let him go due to the threats made on his life.  What zeal Paul had to proclaim the Gospel! 

As we thought of the times of Paul’s day and the corruption that there was, it reminded me that we live in a day much like Paul.  it causes me to pray for the same kind of zeal he had and to look hard at how I can promote the Gospel to those around me. 

A book one might consider reading for ideas on how to promote the Gospel is one by JohnDickson “Promoting the Gospel”
