It’s no surprise that in this life we face trials and tribulations. Jesus said” "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." (John 16:33) The Bible tells us that “all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.(Romans 8:28) and we face trials because testing of our faith produces perseverance. (James 1:3) and Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which [the Lord] has promised to those who love Him. (James 1:12) But remember that in those trials God has promised to “never leave or forsake” us (Deuteronomy 31:8) He promises to give us Grace, and that in our weakness his power is made perfect in us. (2 Corinthians 12:9) Proverb 3:5-6g ives us great advice “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Trials are not easy, they are draining and frustrating, but we know that if we endure, we will receive a crown of life( James 1:12 ). As tough as it may seem, we know that God is for us( Romans 8:31 ) and is working on our behalf. So don’t give UP! These trials last just a short time, but you will emerge Victorious, for you can do ALL things through Christ Jesus who gives us strength! ( Philippians 4:13)

Each week we spotlight a different Cutting edge Christian ministry! Ministries that are doing what Jesus did. Getting outside of the traditional 4 walls and shining a light in the darkness!
This week: The World Famous Salvation Saloon.
"Call it a miracle, but the watering hole is transformed into something called the Salvation Saloon. On the same bar stool where someone got stoned on Saturday night, someone else gets saved on Sunday morning."
St. Petersburg Times
So what in the world is the Salvation Saloon?
The Salvation Saloon, began as an outreach ministry to the biker community & to those who would not seek out God, in traditional ways. It began as the “Traveling Saloon Gospel Show” where we would travel to bars & present
the Gospel message, in our own unique way. In other words…
if people would not go to church…we’d take church to them.
