line 1Fourteen of our families thus far have agreed to do as the apostle Matthew did in inviting unsaved and/or un-churched people to their home for a meal and also to hear aobut the Lord Jesus Christ. There is still time for others of you to commit to being a "Matthew" and host one of these events in your home.
If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
