Pocket Bible Witnessing!

.

.

.

.

Some poet once said, “A picture paints a 1,000 words”. And it is so true!

Here’s an idea for those of us who must go into grocery and department stores. Why not get a pocket Bible, and mark a certain reading for every day of the year. And then, when you have to wait in line, just pull it out and study the verses for that day’s date! And then you won’t have to fumble around for something to read. You simply go to the verses for that particular day’s reading.

.

Not only will you be hiding God’s Word in your heart, but you will be reminding those around you, to study their Bible too!

POCKET BIBLE FOR MANY DAILY SITUATIONS

.

And of course, this can done in many different situations in everyday life. Waiting for a bus. Riding in the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:US_Navy_040327-N-1261P-058_Navy_Chaplain,_Lt._Marc_Massie_assigned_to_Naval_Mobile_Construction_Battalion_Seventy_Four_(NMCB-74)_studies_his_Bible_for_an_upcoming_service.jpgbus. Taking a break at work or school. Waiting at the doctor’s office. And in so many other situations of life.

.

And in this society, people will mostly conclude you are studying the Bible. And so, it becomes a very effective witnessing tool to those around you, both Believers and unbelievers alike! And for people to see somebody studying their Bible speaks perhaps more eloquently than a bible-tract. After all, many everyday people grew up in a Christian home. And for them to see somebody else reading their Bible, might just trigger old childhood memories, thus reminding them how far away they’ve drifted from the Lord! 

.

And then, if somebody happens to make a comment, you might want to have a little tract ready to give them. Or not.

WHY NOT TAKE A CHANCE?

.

Now somebody might criticize you for “being proud” about your religion. Well, isn’t it worth the gamble? After all, pride can come upon us even without reading our Bible in public! Pride can take hold of us during any circumstance!

.

And one other benefit of reading your Bible in checkout lines is, that you won’t be so tempted to look at all those grotesque magazines which usually line the checkout lines.

.

And so, such an addition to one’s daily regimen, seems like a real “win-win” program! 

.

Just an idea.

P.S. If you happen to forget your Bible, waiting in line can also be a great moment to pray. But you probably already knew that.

ORION THE SOLDIER

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Orionurania.jpg

The pagan cultures saw this incredible constellation as a hunter, with a club. Well, they weren’t too far off. Actually, God created it to appear like a soldier. This is because all nature presents aspects of the Gospel. Listen… “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows his handiwork.” Psalm 19:1. And so now we are amazed to discover that beyond the awesome grandeur of the starry night-heavens, God has actually written the Love of God in the heavenly scroll.

7 MAJOR STARS OF ORION…

.

Orion Constellation can best be seen all winter (but even in August in the pre-dawn hours of morning in eastern skies) traveling east to west through the night, in mid-sky.

.

To find the seven major stars of Orion (one star on each shoulder and one star on each foot, plus the three stars which make his belt), you can locate on just about any clear night regardless of the blackness of the night. To find Orion’s other stars, you need more star-visibility…a darker, moonless night, and possibly away from city lights.
