This weekend is the second week of our program Fulfilling God’s Purpose! This week we focus on the theme “Witnessing for Jesus.”
God’s plan for his people has always been that we take responsibility for sharing the Gospel. Paul tells us, “We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors as though God were making his appeal through us” (2 Corinthians 5:20). Knowing that God “wants all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4), we have a great privilege and responsibility as Christ’s ambassadors. With the Holy Spirit working in and through us, we can faithfully and boldly proclaim the Gospel to those around us.
Through Jesus, we know the Father. Through Jesus, the Father has come to us. Through Jesus, we have life everlasting in Heaven. This is the Good News that we as Witnesses for Jesus will want to share.
Prayer: Dear Lord, grant us passion and boldness to be the effective witnesses you want us to be. Place in us compassion for others. Help others see your love within us. We pray that you will bless our program Fulfilling God’s Purpose! In Your precious name we pray. Amen.
Blessings on your journey as a steward!
