Words of Comfort: Mission Europe--The Results



I have learned not to gauge success on how many decisions we obtain. This is because it’s easy to get decisions for Christ. All you need is some emotional music, some closed eyes, heads bowed, a pleading altar-call offering the benefits of peace and joy, along with the carrot of eternal life. Tragically, these unbiblical methods have filled the Church with false converts (I wrote a book on the subject called, God Has a Wonderful Plan for Your Life, with a cover picture a Stephen being stoned to death). The eternal salvation of a human being can’t be obtained by any method. It’s God’s business from start to finish. All we are called to do is plant the good seed of the gospel. As in the natural realm, He gives the seed life, makes it grow, and then in time sometimes allows us to reap. So we don’t know how many truly came to Christ because we don’t have access to the book of Life. That means that the European trip was very successful--because we had the privilege of planting the seed of the Word of God into the hearts of many people, and His Word cannot return void.
