Two hundred fifty thousand.
A few surprising numbers within that big number:
- 19,000 Muslims live in Peoria
- Over 150,000 people (nearly half of the population!) have zero faith, religious adherence, etc.
- Nationally, 60% of people that say they are Christian would also say they do NOT have a belief in Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life.
I think we need to pray more, share Jesus more, and make better disciples.
250,000 people. Odds are you'll be with one of them today. What's your plan then?
(Here's a spreadsheet I put together to compile these numbers.)
Each blog post = One Gospel Share
Coming outside after work one day there were a couple of kids playing basketball at the hoop in the parking lot. Starting a conversation wasn't too hard as the NBA finals had just passed. I've found the "How can I pray for you?" question to be a difficult one for kids to answer, but I eventually got to share the Gospel with the two boys. They didn't necessarily give a response either way.
