Taking Back Arlington For Christ

Let's all just stand up and shout Hallelujah!

A new thing began in Arlington last Saturday night. We are now on the streets of our city with bold gospel signs for all to read. We are the army of God and by His power and grace, we are going to take back our city for Christ - one corner at a time.


Dreams do come true! I have long desired to stand on the streets of Arlington and plainly declare that JESUS SAVES and ONLY JESUS SAVES.
Our first group went out Saturday evening to a very busy intersection in Arlington, not far from the church. We were scheduled a half hour - and stayed for an hour. PRAISE ALMIGHTY GOD!
The response from the public was immediate and plentiful. We heard honks and saw thumbs up, and we heard some other comments too. Each one was an affirmation from God that we were where we needed to be.
Hundreds and hundreds drove by during that time and saw the clearly printed messages that God gave His Son Jesus and Ye must be born again. It was obvious that hearts were being convicted.
Perhaps a Christian was emboldened to witness to his friend, perhaps a hard heart was softened, perhaps another church was encouraged to do what we were doing. The possibilities are endless. We do know a man named David stopped his vehicle and asked us to pray that God would help him and he could get his life back on track.
We began this week with a small group on short notice since the signs got done Friday afternoon. People were nervous, but showed up anyway. God bless them everyone.
As I suspected, those who accompanied me had their hearts touched for the lost all over again and they can't wait to hit the streets this coming Saturday.
What makes this ministry even more enriching is that we have several people in our class that have mobility issues and one that can barely see, but all expressed interest in participating to stand up for Jesus. Praise God. We will have some out in wheelchairs soon - taking a stand for Christ.
As it looks now, we will have twice as many on the streets next Saturday, possibly more.
God is up to something here in Arlington. By His power and grace, we will take a stand and we will take our city back one street-corner at a time.
STAND UP, STAND UP FOR JESUS, YE SOLDIERS OF THE CROSS.

To God be the Glory, great things He hath done.
