17 Jul Why Go Out?
YOU HAVE THE GREEN LIGHT, SO……..GO!!
(Jesus said)“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations”
I will be forever grateful to the evangelist Judson White who traveled to northern Ontario to share the Gospel in the lumber camps. It was there that my grandfather, David Mallory and his brother “Big Jim” Mallory gave their lives to Christ. Judson had a vision from God. He was to go to a place where men worked hard, drank often, and cursed with great regularity! Judson, however, was up to the task. He loved Jesus and wanted to share that love with others.
Jesus’ final words before he ascended into heaven were for us to “Go”! You and I are the ones Jesus was talking to. He asks us to “Go” and share Christ’s love. This can be done in a variety of ways. You may have someone in your life that God is asking you to invite to Faith Community Church. You may be led to reach out and help a neighbor or friend who is struggling. Perhaps, God is calling you to get involved with one of our many outreach efforts at Faith Community Church (Caring Community Cookout for the Homeless, Recovering Moms Helping Moms, Spanish Language Ministry, Cornerstone, Algonquin Pantry, Blue Bag Ministry, etc.).
This week I invite you think of one person or one outreach ministry in our church to pray for. Write down the name of the person or ministry and pray for them every day. You will be amazed at how God uses your prayer to open your heart to His leading and blesses the person or outreach ministry you choose to pray for!
