Black Friday!

24shop_slide1

According to a preliminary Black Friday shopping survey conducted by BIGresearch for the National Retail Federation, up to 128 million people will shop this Friday, Saturday or Sunday. According to the survey, 49 million people will definitely hit the stores while another 79 million are waiting to see the weekend deals before making any decisions. Needless to say I am looking forward to this years Black Friday! Not because I'm going to purchase anything, but because I'm going to tell all the people about the greatest purchase in history!

“And they *sang a new song, saying, "Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You [Christ] were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood {men} from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.” Revelation 5:9 NASB

John Owen, in Death of Death, says: "Christ then, by His death, purchased, for all whom he died, all those things which the Bible says were the effects of His death. The value of His death purchased deliverance from the power of sin and God's wrath, from death and the power of the devil, from the curse of the law and the guilt of sin. The value of His death obtained reconciliation with God, peace, and eternal redemption. These things are now God's free gifts, because Christ purchased them.”

If you are going out to shop this weekend at least bring some tracts to hand to the people in line with you. If your not shopping I encourage you to go and pass out tracts to the tons of people who will be waiting in line for the stores to open. And if your brave enough, do some open air! The people cant move so they have to listen to you! Below is a video of Leon Brown preaching to the lines last year.
