• The R.A.C.E. Guide has meaning

 Sons of Thunder Ministry, Inc. is involved with the racing community, so it is fitting that we R.A.C.E for Jesus!

 

The story behind the R.A.C.E. guide is that many years ago I heard a young girl share a testimony that while she was in Russia, she saw people tearing the Bible apart, not to  degrade or destroy the Bible, but taking it apart so that everyone could have a piece of the Bible. The R.A.C.E. guide is handed out one piece-at-a-time so that everyone can have one piece of the Bible to share.  Enjoy the reading of God’s word one piece at a time.

R:  Repenting of sin
     Receiving Salvation in Christ
     Respond in Trust.

 


As members of the Sons of Thunder Ministry it is our desire to help persons discover the reality of sin and its consequential bondage. Helping people to become aware of sin and it’s effects in their lives will make them realize the importance of repenting and/or turning away from sin.  James 4:1-3, Titus 3:5, Ephesians2: 8-9, Romans 3:90-18; 4:4-5, Mark 1:15Psalm 51

 


A:  Accepting  Gods’ forgiveness
     Accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior; 

 


     Accepting His Assurance: 
     Aware of God’s presence in life.

 


Salvation is to be shared, therefore it is important for STM team members to help persons come to accept God’s forgiveness? It is important to let people know that through Christ, the grace of God is accessible to everyone. As I was taught from a child, the heart of the gospel is “For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life (John 3:16)”

 


Atonement is made possible through the life; death, and-resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was and is for the whole world to receive. Through acceptance of Christ is this gift of grace, everyone can know forgiveness of sin and can be made right with God.

 

Matthew 26:28, Philippians 2:5-11, Acts 4:14-- 16:29-31, James 2:14-26, I John 2:1-2

 


C: Conscious belief in Christ Jesus
    Committing to walk with Jesus Christ
    Conviction of sin

 


It is important as a STM team member that we assist people in making a confession of faith in Christ. People often need help in putting trust in Christ. John 3:6 says that “What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit” and people need help to receive Him as found in John 1:42 as it says, “but to all who-receive him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God.”

 


E.      Evangelizing

 


Salvation is to be shared. Jesus Himself went to Galilee proclaiming the good news of God and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.  He gave us other commands to follow such as: To love thy neighbor and another was to “go therefore and make-disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you-always, to the-end-of the-age.” Matthew 28:19-20
