If you live in the state of Kentucky, then you know how big of a deal the KY Derby is. People arrive from all over to watch the race. It’s part of Kentucky’s identity. It’s so big that Kentucky goes into party mode 2-3 weeks before race day! The day before the Derby is the Oaks.
I will be going down to the Oaks this Friday…to street preach! I’m going with Collin and some other guys from our church. As you can imagine, people will probably not accept our message very well. Think about it: they’re going down to drink and gamble. We’re going to be telling them that they need to repent from that and turn to Christ.
Please be in prayer this week before and during our preaching for us to be bold and for people to receive our message.
I have attached a poll to the bottom of this post. Please take your time and fill it out. Encourage people you know to fill it out!
PS: This verse is one of my favorites. It is such a great verse to “rally” around!
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble.But take heart! I have overcomethe world.”
