Academy Awards Adventure ’09


I’d like to share with you all the exciting things that happened at The Oscars last Sunday, where a team of 22 evangelists shared their faith by handing out tracts, open air preaching and talking one-to-one, but not much happened. No one yelled (except a hate church from Kansas), no one threw anything, no one got mad, and as far as I could tell, no one made any professions of faith.

So what’s the use? What purpose did our seven hours of work make?

The day after, in my regular morning time with the Lord while reading through my One Year Bible, I was encouraged to read this confirmation in The Word from Psalm 40: 8-10—

I desire to do your will, O my God;
your law is within my heart.

I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly;
I do not seal my lips,
as you know, O LORD.

I do not hide your righteousness in my heart;
I speak of your faithfulness and salvation.
I do not conceal your love and your truth
from the great assembly.

So what difference did our witnessing make?

The word of God was preached in obedience to His command. We’ll have to leave the results up to Him.

Can I hear somebody say “Amen?”


  1. You got my “Amen”.

    What a wonderfully appropriate scripture! Is God amazing or what!? What a joy to serve Him, especially with folks like you, Steve. Thanks for your faithful example.

  2. Good work brothers and sisters.

  3. You know how sometimes you’ll come across verses in Scripture that you have read before but then a time comes when you read the same verses again and its like “BOOM” (not “bam”) it hits you like a ton of bricks?

    I love how God can simultaneously speak to His people. Yesterday morning, during my daily study, my bookmark was set at, yep, you guessed it…Psalm 40! It struck me deeper than ever before as I read it over and over again. And now you post it as an encouragement from what you read at the same time (minus the 3 hour zone difference). Amazing!

    Good work folks! And, yes, AMEN!
