This is the Truth Network so people will need to hear the good news of Jesus Christ.
I was one of those people I'm Stu Epperson this is to talk weekend with me in the studio is a young man who's been on before all you say about us guys.
He's a bold young bonfire evangelist Jeremiah Meriwether what her name. Jeremiah could have Jan to thank you so much. Thank you with us before you just so happened I got a hold of your artillery listeners, who is Jeremiah Meriwether yes I'm a 24-year-old itinerant evangelists mainly work in the southeast. I live in Jacksonville, Florida, and I'm excited for people to come to know and follow Jesus Christ and the really invested in God's word and making disciples that a diver once said to me if we could just follow the sky up and mass-produce him whole world come to trust you because you have that far but why aren't more Christians sharing the gospel wire more Christians invigorated emboldened in their faith to bring people to Jesus Christ it took to share the good news of Christ to our lost world. Jeremiah what's going on there.
You know, one of the first things that God calls us to do when we follow him is to deny ourselves. So if were still living for ourselves. Were going to deal with a lot of fear of man. And if that's the case where not going to be able to have that real desire to get out and do something that makes us look foolish as part of Christ call yet so few people you know it's interesting the same anomaly or phenomena is going on in tithing.
They say that less than 10% of churchgoing Christians give 10% to afford yet the all these ministries are desperate for money right just keep the doors open right to continue to keep the gospel going out.
And yet I heard that less than 5% of Christians have ever lead someone to Christ and I heard less than 10% of Christians have ever even share their faith or are you actively sharing faith. So why that dispute we have what Christ called us to do, but why is it that so many Christians get out of bed every morning little think about whom I deleted Christ today who like you to pray for, to receive Christ today, would you wiser. Jeremiah can you help me understand this. Oh goodness. Perhaps there's many reasons, but again you you have to look at your heart every day. Examine your heart and say you know my truly following Christ semi in my disciple worth reproducing and just allow the spirit of God to identify things that need to go and this is an everyday thing tells about Jeremiah Meriwether model that force you on the show, you go and use the college campuses on the boardwalk at the NH Atlantic Beach.Jacksonville, Florida area. Tell us a little bit about what you have done there. You got you got a neighborhood full of what 13 different people group shows that you're telling earlier breakfast yeah man I'm I'm in the hard places all the time rough neighborhoods many different places such as that in the neighborhood that I currently live in. Oh goodness there's so many countries. II told us to have breakfast here think there's 13 different languages spoken, that maybe a little high estimate, but this Christmas we are looking to get a Bible into every single home in in their own heart language and to really invest in those who are hungry and said that that's that's the mission for this particular neighbor enjoy getting a little Bible and many other countries, it's illegal to own a Bible against up to 57 countries now so you're getting the Bible give us an example of how God's open-door future.
The faith just in your coming and going, interacting and adjusting your neighborhood yes you know you groceries. You you bump into somebody who's checking their mailbox there. You're right there tells something that's happened recently. This is this is actually really great and the ice cream man in our neighborhood. I would got conversation with them and he has an incredible story of coming to the Lord and serving Lord. 40 years and he's he's a pastor and he uses his job to minister to evangelize and I've in terms of the investing people in the neighborhood have been invited to dinners that were with groups of men from countries who are absolutely close to the gospel.
We've been able to invest in these relationships and it's been very, very difficult, but you can know God is working in these very tough place so I can't give much detail but I got so your work. It's also another example. Maybe when you're out there doing opener stuff you get after you start preaching you start yet yes yes what's what are some other recent encounters. You had yeah I'm you know I'm I'm deftly done open-air preaching at a heavy metal concert is what comes to mind, but I do a lot of face-to-face evangelism one on one. A lot of tough areas. You know I was speaking in another state, and on June and I and my headphones on is going for walk. I didn't want to really talk to anyone, but I just really felt impressed to speak to these teenagers so I walk out and I offer them prayer you know he is there anything I can pray for you about could be school job, family members, sickness, and they all kind of laughed and then they ended up one kid ended up sharing a lot of difficult things were going on at home and in the rest ended up really listening because it seemed like he's kind of the leader of this group so I was able to share with them on Jesus, the change my life. I was 16 years old 2009. As I'm walking away I can hear someone as if the running up to me and it's nighttime. It's about 10 PM and I turn around and it's one of these kids and he has tears in his eyes and he just said, please do not stop what you're doing. You are changing the city you're working for God, thank you so much and I never met this kid before 10 minutes ago. He he actually went to give me three dollars and that's not I don't.
I'm not accept her money.
I don't know you and he said no please take this. This is like kind of me investing in what you're doing and so I said look I would rather burn this money then see you not serve God wholeheartedly.
So if you can give this money from genuine place. All except but if this is just kind of like, I'll give you this money so you can do God's work, as opposed to God same thing through your life. It was it was a very powerful experience that is so convicting, and really that's what were charcoal this yet a Christian radio.
