Last Friday night the pastor, his wife and 28 friends from church met downtown. They prayed that God would go before them and prepare hearts. They had their song sheets in hand in hopes of doing some caroling in the many restaurants along Main Street.
The pastor went ahead of the group, entering each restaurant alone to ask permission from the manager. Could he bring in a group of carolers to sing a couple of songs? Only one restaurant declined the offer because they were too busy.
Every other restaurant welcomed them. As they began singing, many people stopped eating and joined in! When they finished their caroling the group handed out DVDs of the Jesus Movie to any who wanted them. They also had little booklets with the gospel message they distributed freely.
The carolers were even welcomed into bars where the singing became lively. In one bar two of the servers began dancing! It seemed the people didn’t want them to leave. So the pastor spoke freely, asking aloud, “Does anyone here need a miracle?” Hands went up. He then prayed, knowing nothing is too big for God. He prayed God would meet the needs of each person there. More Jesus Movies were distributed before they moved onto the next venue.
They caroled for over two hours and left every restaurant rejoicing and praising God for a joyous blessing! Seeds were planted in hundreds of lives!
What about you? Have you considered Christmas Caroling for the Lord? There’s still plenty of time before Christmas!

[This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
