Compelling in the highways and hedges.

August 21, 2013

Bethel Baptist Church
David Worley, pastor
Greenfield, Tenn.

“And the lord said unto the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled'” — Luke 14.23.

In groups of two and three, 15 evangels* — members of Bethel Baptist Church — braved both literal and figurative darkness as Pastor David Worley led them into their communities, bringing the Light of the Gospel. “Everyone reported great visits with some wonderful people. In fact, one man got saved last night! Hallelujah!” said Pastor David. “I guess going out into the highways and back roads and compelling people to come to the wedding feast still works after all!”
