Who's Your One? Die, and Be Forgotten - John 1:40-42 (September 22, 2019)

10/2/2019
Your conversation with the One that God has placed on your heart may mean that thousands, even millions, come to Christ later on.

Your name may never be known on earth, but heaven will rejoice when your One comes to Christ. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Hell is a real place. Hell is also a certainty for those that die outside of a relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus, in a parable he told, gave us a clear picture of what hell is like. This picture should motivate us to try to keep as many people from going there as possible. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Our extraordinary God is extraordinary in His reputation. His name is great among the nations, but we as His followers must proclaim His name through righteous living.
