Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this Day our Daily Bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, forever. Amen
Mathew 6: 9-13 (KJV)

Hi to all my friends, just wanted to share my thoughts on giving gospel.
Giving gospel or telling the good news of Jesus has become a hard thing in the Christian world. Today many are divided against different sects in Christian religion itself. Some argue they are right in following their own type of culture. Hence we have no objection in arguing with such people. So here come my thoughts on giving gospel.
Whenever we Christians want to give a gospel to a non believer it ends up in trouble and arguments question over question. So when we give the gospel you need to tell what you need to tell completely from first to last, what you intended to speak. Even though the person may argue at first. You ought to tell the person first to listen patiently what you intended to say then he may ask. So that he may know the truth completely and then ask the question. Many Christians are overflowed to give the other religions a blast. Some times we need to be self controlled and speak what we believers of truth intend to speak.
When you give the gospel it should be obviously from the bible that you know of. Flattery talk or causal talk will result in lack of importance in the life we live and what we share to others. Today many youths are overflowed to speak the gospel. But how do you give the gospel? We should not judge between any person or religion or anything. It should be all about God and Him alone. When we give the gospel it is for the glorification of God alone and not to win hearts or religion but to win souls for Christ.
Other thing, I have realized in life is that there is a time and place for everything when you need to give. The spirit of God will come upon you when we need to speak the truth and share the love of God. When we speak we shouldn’t be double minded whether I should give or not the gospel of Jesus. Never doubt yes or no.
I have seen many people arguing catholic vs. protestant. This is what you ought to tell such people. Believe whatever is written in the Bible and don’t follow what is not written in the Bible. The answer is that simple! Don’t follow traditions and worldly cultures. The conclusion is “READ THE BOOK OF FAITH AND LIVE BY THE BOOK OF FAITH” i.e. THE BIBLE.
Another thing I wanted to share with you all is the deception in the different simplified version of Bible. Better stick to KJV (King James Version) and NIV (New International version) for starters. Today many modern bibles have made words so simple they have lost their meaning and truth and some words are words of men rather than words of God. Jesus says in Revelation
“That anyone who adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him the share in the tree of life and in the holy city which are described in this book.” Revelation 22:18
Therefore friends read the right Bible and interpret the correct truth. When we speak and give the truth from the word we have a reward from heaven. Conclusion is let us speak the truth and live the truth and “Jesus” is that truth. Let us put worldly arguments aside about religions and Issues concerning the world. Let us live for the glorification and edification of our Lord and Savior.
I can keep on writing I just wanted to keep this Blog “Short, Simple & Sweet (SSS)”
Feel free to share your thoughts or leave a message.

12)You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.
13)In a loud voice they sang:
“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”
14)Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing;
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, forever and ever!”
15)And they cried out in a loud voice:
Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.
16)We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the one who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign.
17)Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.
18)“Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the ages. Who will not fear you, O Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
Revelation 15:3, 4
19)After this I heard what sounded like the roar o a great multitude in heaven shouting:
Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for true and just are his judgments.

22)On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written:
KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
23)He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.
24)Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.
25)Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
26)I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.
