Life can be ultimate carnival ride

Seek the crown, preach the gospel -- part 1

This command was given by our Lord prior to his ascension back into heaven. "And he said unto them, 'Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned'" (Mark 16:15-16). No matter who or what the individual may be - king or beggar, rich or poor, educated or illiterate - the message of the Gospel is for all. It is by this message that man can learn what to do to obtain the grace God offers to all.
