Devotion

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2

Why pray? According to R.A. Torrey a 19th century preacher he gave this reason for prayer.

Because there is a devil, and prayer is a God-appointed way to resit Him

(Ephesians 6:12-13, 18)**

Because prayer is God’s way or us to obtain what we need from Him (Luke 11:3-13)**

Because prayer is the means God has appointed for us to find “grace to help in time of need

“ (Hebrew 4:16)**

Because prayer with thanksgiving is God’s way for us to obtain freedom from anxiety and to

receive “the peace of God” (Philippians 4:6-7) **

So remember to start each day in prayer. Start the New Year out right by setting a certain

time of day to pray and listen to what God has to say to you. If possible join a prayer group

in your local church or over the via-a-Internet.

Since prayer is God’s most gracious plan

Whereby He links Himself with man

Should not His own more often say

To one another,”Let us pray”? ----Sterling

“Our highest privilege is to talk to God”

Have a blessed month.

In Christ love,

Brother Gerald

** Ephesians 12-13,18 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers,

against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces

of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the

day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done

everything, to stand. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and

requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

** Luke 11:3-13 3Give us each day our daily bread.

4Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into

temptation. “ 5Then he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend, and he goes to him

at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread, 6because a friend of mine on

a journey has come to me, and I have nothing to set before him.’ 7”Then the one inside

answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children are with me in bed.

I can’t get up and give you anything.’ 8I tell you, though he will not get up and give him the

bread because he is his friend, yet because of the man’s boldness he will get up and give

him as much as he needs. 9”So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you

will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10For everyone who asks receives; he

who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. 11”Which of you fathers,

if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12Or if he asks for an egg, will give

him a scorpion? 13If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your

children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

** Hebrew 4:16 Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may

receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

** Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and

petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which

transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

January Words for Thought

There are no shortcut on the road to spiritual maturity.

God timing is perfect – even in death

Our highest privilege is to talk to God.

Sometimes the best witness is kindness.

When you relate to God as a person, you develop a personal relationship with God.

To cast a good shadow; walk in God’s light.

Doing what’s right today means no regrets tomorrow.

Christian Unity begins at the cross.

Don’t try to everything – Do only what God’s wants you to do.

Jesus gave his life for us so we could have his life in us.

Christians are not sinless, but they should sin less.

When we have nothing left but God, God is enough.

No matter how far you’ve run from God, He’s only a prayer away.

“A great way to start the New Year out!”

“Opening your Bible can be a real eye-opener.”

January 99: Genesis 1-50, Job 1-42, Exodus 1-13

January Poem

A NEW YEAR’S PRAYER

Dear Lord, please give me . . .
A few friends who understand me

and yet remain my friends

A work to do which has real value,

without which the world

would feel the poorer . . .

A mind unafraid to travel,

even though the trail be no blazed

An understanding heart . . .

A sense of humor.

Time for quiet, silent of meditation.

And the patience to wait

for the coming of these things,

with the wisdom to know them

when they come.

“No one is hopeless whose hope is in GOD!

. . . . but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like

eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:31

For people who feel defeated hope is always there in our God and our Savior Jesus Christ.

If you feel defeated the hope of restoration is given in Lamentations 3.

It beings, “This I recall to my mind, therefore I have hope”(verse 21). We have hope because

of God’s character, which is marked by these traits:

His mercy and compassion (verse 22), faithfulness(verse 23), goodness(verse 25), &

salvation(26).**

Remember God compassions are new every morning and He always gives refreshment of

hope. Your faithfulness is the best weapon against has hopelessness. “Faith is being sure of

what we hope for and certain of what we do not see”(Hebrews 11:1)

Have a blessed month.

In Christ love,

Brother Gerald

**Lamentations 3: 21-26 21Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 22Because of

the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassion’s never fail. 23They are new

every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;

therefore I will wait for him.” 25The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one

who seeks him; 26it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.

It’s just like a grain of a mustard seed,

But my faith can push mountains away . . .

APRIL Poem

WHAT IS PRAYER?

Is it-measured words that are memorized,

Forcefully said and dramatized,

Offered with pomp and arrogant pride

In words unmatched to the feelings inside?

No . . . prayer is so often just words unspoken

Whispered in tears by a heart that is broken . . .

For God is already deeply aware

Of the burdens we find too heavy to bear,

And all we need do is to seek Him in prayer

And without a word he will help us to bear

Our trails and troubles---our sickness and sorrow

And show us the way to a brighter tomorrow . . .

There’s no need at all for IMPRESSIVE PRAYER

For the minute we seek God HE IS ALREADY

THERE!

Good can come out of failure!

Since time we were children we were taught to avoid failure. Failure can strike a blow at

everyone in our homes, churches, and places of business. Failure is not final. God can use

failure and to restore us to usefulness.(**Read John 18:15-18,25,27)

The response of some people who experience failure is to withdraw from others. It’s a way

to deal with embarrassment and regain their composure before facing others. Failure can

result from a lack of confidence and from fear. Many adults fail because they lack confidence

to stand up for what they know is true and right! Remember failure is not final!

(**Read John 21:15-17)

God understands that people fail and stand ready to help them rebound from failure! With

God’s help, people who experience failure can make failure a new beginning. Failure should

lead to renewed commitment(**Read John 21:18-22)

FIVE STEPS TO RENEWING MY COMMITMENT:

I can renew my commitment to by . . .

Acknowledging my failures

Recognizing my place before God

Choosing to focus on God’s purpose for me

Removing all that hinders my service to God

Praying that God will give me new opportunities

What other steps can you take to renew your commitment??

Remember:

We can move beyond failure to purpose if we will:

@ Get up! Refuse to stay down when we experience failure.

@ Get real! Don’t sulk. Remember that everyone fails sometimes.

@ Get away! Spend time alone with God evaluating the reasons for our failures.

@ Get rid! Remove habits, actions, or attitudes that may cause us to repeat our failures.

@ Get help! Ask trusted friends to hold us

accountable.

@ Get busy! Roll up our sleeves and get

back to work.

@ Get serious! Apply the lessons we learn from our failures.

Failure can be useful for God’s purpose.

Have a blessed month.

In Christ love,

Brother Gerald

**15Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. Because this disciple was

known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the high priest’s courtyard, 16 but Peter

had to wait outside at the door. The other disciple, who was known to the high priest,

came back, spoke to the girl on duty there and brought Peter in.

17”You are not one of his disciples, are you?” the girl at the door asked Peter.

He replied, “I am not.”

18It was cold, and the servants and officials stood around a fire they had made to keep

warm. Peter also was standing with them, warming himself. 25As Simon Peter stood

warming himself, he was asked, “You are not one of his disciples, are you?” 27Again Peter

denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow. John 18: 15-18,25,27

**15When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you

truly love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said,

“Feed my lambs.” 16Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you truly love me?” He

answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”

17The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” John 21:15-17

**18I tell you the truth, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you

wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress

you and lead you where you do not want to go.” 19Jesus said this to indicate the kind of

death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!”

20Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was

the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going

to betray you?”) 21When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?” 22 Jesus

answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow

me.” John 21:18-22

DEVOTION

Thought on Thankfulness

The Holy Spirit lead me to put this devotion out this month please give credit to Charles H.

Spurgeon and read this article in Christ.

It is easy to sing when we can read the notes by daylight; but he is skillful who sings when

there is not a ray of light to read by, who sings from his heart. No man can make a song in

the night of himself; he may attempt it, but he will find that a song in the must be divinely

inspired. Let all things go well, I can weave songs, fashioning them wherever I go out of the

flowers that grow on my path; but put me in a desert, where no green things grows, and

wherewith shall I frame a hymn of praise to God?

No, it is not in man’s power to sing when all is adverse . . .Since our Maker gives songs in the

night, let us wait on Him for the music . . .Let us not remain songless because affliction is

upon us, but tune our lips to the melody of thanksgiving.

Charles H. Spurgeon

Have a blessed month.

JUNE Words for Thought

We our saved by Christ dying, not our doing.

God’s dawn of deliverance often comes when the hour of trial is darkness.

A sure sign of spiritual growth is ability to take criticism.

Jesus said “Go into all the world” (Mark 16:15) The world beings where your front yard ends.

There is no better time to praise God than right now.

True repentance turns from the wrong and returns to the right.

Nothing is more pleasing to; God than self-sacrifice.

Praying is talking to best friend.

We don’t really know the Bible unless we obey the Bible.

To experience God’s strength we must recognize our weakness

A watching Christian will be a working Christian.

You can do what you want when you want to please God.

JUNE Poem

With Thankful Heart

For all the simple things of life

We thank Thee God this day;

For tender fragile moments

So soon do pass away.

For a all the treasured, cherished things

Which give our hearts delight;

The magic warmth of Christmastime

And glow of candlelight.

For signs of spring and birds that sing

Tho’ winter winds still blow;

The robin comes when first we see

A crocus in the snow.

For pleasing scent of burning leaves

From autumn’s golden store;

And sweet caress of summer

With walks along the shore.

For gentle sleep which eases care

When we are tired and worn;

And coffee brewing on the stove

Upon a winter morn.

For welcome laughter of our friends

The touch of baby’s cheek;

For those who pass us on the street

And smile where’re we speak.

For soothing strains of music

Which fall upon our ears

Compassion share by those we love

And flowing of healing tears.

We thank Thee God for hands and feet

For eyes with which we see;

But most of all, Dear Father

For joy of loving thee!

Plan to Pray 

Christians should make a plan to pray at a certain time of day and pick a certain place to

pray in their home.  In the Bible Daniel had a specific time for prayer (Daniel 6:10).  Also he

followed a schedule for prayer; indicates in Psalm 55:17. 

Remember prayer is Christian open line to heaven. So start today and make a plan to pray

on regular schedule.  Failure to establish good spiritual habits will lead to poor spiritual

health.

PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE

When is the best time for you to pray each day?

Set aside that time as an appointment with God.

Then ask God to help you keep your commitment. 

Plan your praying, then pray your plan!

Have a blessed month. 

In Christ love,

Brother Gerald

God Answers Prayer 

Sometimes, when heart are weak,

He gives the very gifts

believer seek.

But often faith

must learn a deeper rest

and trust God’s silence

when He doesn’t speak;

for He whose name is Love

will send the best.

Stars may burn out,

nor mountain walls endure,

but God is true,

His promises are sure . . .

. . .for those who seek.

Thought On Obedience 

Whosoever keeps the whole law yet offends at one point is fuilty of all (see James 2:10). 

He is reightly subject of the hole penalty.  If he habitually disobeys us God in one thing,

then he doesn’t obey him in anything, because obedience to God consists in an attitude of

the heart. It is willingness to obey God, to let him rule everything.  So if a person habitually

disobeys God in one thing, his state of heart renders obedience in anything else impossible,

because a person can’t in one area obey God out of respect for his authority while in another

area refuse obedience.

Obedience to God is an obedient state of heart, a preference for God’s authority and

commandments over everything else.  If a person therefore appears to obey in some areas

yet he knowingly disobeys in others, yet he is deceived.  He offends in one point, and this

proves he is guilty of all; in others words, he doesn’t obey from the heart at all.  If a person

refuses to obey God’s law even a single duty, he has no true faith and his outwardly spiritual acts are loathsome.

Charles G Finney 

Scripture  on obedience: 

Love means doing what God has commanded us, and he has commanded us to love one

another, just as you heard from the beginning. 

2 John 6 

Love means doing what God has commanded us, and he has commanded us to love one

another, just as you heard from the beginning. 

Psalms 119:2 

“. . .   .what is more pleasing to the Lord: your burnt offerings and sacrifices or your

obedience to his voice?”.

1 Samuel 15:22 

Keep the commandments and keep your life; despising them leads to death. 

Proverbs 19:16

Without True Faith 

Without true faith you’re like a ship

Tossed in a storm at sea,

Not knowing what may be your course

And lost most hopelessly. 

True faith will bring you happiness

And be your guiding light.

True faith will weather every storm

Though dark may; be you plight. 

It will dispel despair and gloom

And help your fears allay.

True faith, will bring you strength a new

To face each dawning day.

CHANGES 

This is a story about change, and as I embraced it once again my Heavenly Father has

shown me that He never makes mistakes. 

For the past seven years I have been living with my unmarried daughter (my only child). She

was there every day for me, supporting, encouraging, and helping as I cared for her 91 year

old Grandmother and her Father who had Alzheimer disease. The Lord took Mother and Keith

home within three months of one another, and eight months later my daughter fell in love,

got married, and moved out of the country. I faced my worst nightmare...being alone. 

This change not only represented all my hopes, but all my fears. I cried out,” Dear Lord, take

away this fear of being alone, help me to rest down in your promise never to leave me nor

forsake me. I feel these changes blowing on me, help me to face this and use it to propel me

forward.” I felt so fragile, so frightened. Could I support myself alone, how would I do yard

work and heavy cleaning, what if I got sick? I weighted myself down with troubles, all that I

have had, all that I presently had, and all that I expected to have. The God of my past,

present, and future was asking me to walk securely, by faith, one day at a time. I prayed,

I read my Bible, prayed some more, and asked others to pray for me. I asked myself over

and over again, why am I emotionally reacting this way? It was pointed out to me that I was

grieving. The Lord had taken away my last pillar.... he wanted me to lean on Him only. Not

mother, not husband, not daughter... just Him and him alone. 

One morning through my tears the Lord gave me Isaiah 43:19. See...I’m doing a new thing!

Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in

the wasteland. This was to be a whole new adventure and I was about to embark upon it

with the Captain of my soul. 

It has been four months now, and not only has He turned my mourning into joy, but as I

recall all of these things I have hope.  

Someone once said the world could be compared to a great spider web. If you touch it

anywhere you will set the whole thing trembling. So every day I try to touch someone for Jesus.... who knows where the trembling may stop?  

Indeed His loving kindness does not cease, his compassion has not failed and they ARE new

every morning. “GREAT IS HIS FAITHFULNESS.” 

O most Holy and ever loving Father, I thank You once more for the new promise that has

come with this new morning and the hope of this new day. May I trust you today for all the

needs of my body, my soul and my spirit? Amen.

Praise Jesus: 

I am working with a Christian organization called Youth with A mission the biggest Protestant

organization in the world. This is a voluntary organization no one gets any salary but look to

God for the provision. God never failed us thus far. I am so happy to serve God for full time.

I was saved in the year 1991 when I was 15.I was born and brought up in a Hindu family. I

was very strong in my faith so I persecuted Christians who came to my village to share God’s 

love. I tore a lot of Christian literature and was doing physical exercise to beat up Christians. 

I was involved in a militant Hindu organization called RSS-Rashtria Swamsevak Sangh(means

National Volunteer Movement) for 3 years and actively participated. But a group of Christians

were praying for me behind the scene. One day a friend of mine told me why should I waste

my time and encouraged me to join a school which he attended. So I decided to go with my

mother’s permission I joined the school. Soon I came to know it was a Bible college. I tried to

runaway but it was God who kept me there and I was saved there and was baptized in the

year1991.After my Bachelor in Theology studies I joined in the same college as teaching

faculty. Next year I went to do My Master in Divinity in a Seminary. Soon I was graduated

and joined in YWAM (Youth With A Mission). Now I am serving God by teaching, preaching

and evangelism.  My family is not saved except my Mom. Please pray for them. 

I have a great desire in my life is to see India reached with the Gospel. I am praying to God

for the same. I believe God would use me for His glory to change Million’s destiny. Please

pray for me. 

I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters they are married and have children’s am waiting for a girl.I

am going to marry a girl from  orphanage. Because I want to set an example to all my Indian

Brethren. I do not want to take any dowry. Please pray for a right Girl. 

With Love and Prayers.

The Best way to handle a problem is to hand it over to God!

Winning in life depends on God – NOT GOOD LUCK! 

The first step to receiving God’s forgiveness is to admit that we need it.

The U in Jesus 

Before U were thought of or time had begun,

God even stuck U in the name of His Son.

And each time U pray, you’ll see it’s true

You can’t spell out JesUs and not include U.  

You’re a pretty big part of His wonderful name,

For U, He was born; that’s why He came.

And His great love for U is the reason He died.

It even takes U to spell crUcified. 

Isn’t it thrilling and splendidly grand

He rose from the dead, with U in His plan.

The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,

and this word resUrrection is spelled with a U. 

When JesUs left earth at His upward ascension,

He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.

“Go into the world and tell them it’s true

That I love them all -

Just like I love U. 

So many great people are spelled with a U,

Don’t they have a right to know JesUs too? 

It all depends now on what U will do,

He’d like them to know

But it all starts with U.

Prayer

Prayer is to me the best way to communicate with our Father in heaven. As Psalmist says in

Psalms 148:18 The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him sincerely.

(NLT)  I started a prayer ministry call Watchmen Prayer Ministry about 5 years ago.  It’s been

the most rewarding ministry that I been in charge of.  Nothing better than intercessory

prayer.  The Lord will bless many times over for it.  I love to praise the Lord for the many

prayers He has answered and will answered.

There never is a night or day

That God can’t hear us when we pray;

There is no time, there is no place

That God can withhold His love and grace  --DJD

Rembember:   Prayer is open line to heaven.

If you don’t belong to a prayer ministry; you should try to join one today at your local church

or even a prayer ministry on the Internet.  They’re many good prayer ministries that you can

join on the Internet.  I have prayer ministry on Internet called “Prayer Patrol.”

It says in:  Paul Prayer for Spiritual Empowering.

14When I think of the wisdom and scope of God’s plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the

Father,15the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 16I pray that from his glorious,

unlimited resources he will give you mighty inner strength through his Holy Spirit. 17 And I

pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your

roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love. 18And may you have the power to

understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his

love really is. 19May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never

fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from

God.20 Now glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish

infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. 21May he be given glory in the

church and in Christ Jesus forever and ever through endless ages. Amen.

OCTOBER Poem

Lord, Give His Word

Give us cheering words for the lonely,

Comforting words that bless . . .

Encouraging words for the hopeless,

Smiling words to bring happiness

Give us patient words for the struggling,

Courteous words, so that rudeness ends,

Kind words for those who upset us . . .

Forgiving words for those who offend.

Give us faith-filled words that are positive,

That inspire optimism and zeal.

Teach us “the time to keep silence”

And the “time to speak” and to feel.

May we wait on You with prayerful thoughts,

For the wisdom You impart.

Give use acceptable words to express,

The meditations of our hearts

NOVEMBER POEM

THANK YOU, GOD, FOR EVERYTHING

Thank you, God, for everything

the big things and the small,

For “every good gift comes from God”

the giver of them all

And all too often we accept

without any thanks or praise

The gifts God sends as blessing

each day in many ways,

And so at this THANKSGIVING TIME

we offer up a prayer

To thank you, God, for giving us

a lot more than our share . . .

First thank you for the little things

that often come our way,

The things we take for granted

but don’t mention when we pray,

The unexpected courtesy,

the thoughtful, kindly deed,

A hand reached out to help us

in the time of sudden need . . .

Oh, make us more aware, dear God,

of little daily graces

That come to us with “sweet surprise”

from never-dreamed-of places

Then, thank you for the “MIRACLES”

we are much too blind to see,

And give us new awareness

of our many gifts from Thee,

And help us to remember

that the KEY to LIFE and LIVING

Is to make each prayer a PRAYER of THANKS

and every day THANKSGIVING.

Devotion

The spirit lead me to put this devotion out this month please give credit to Dale Robbins and

read this article in Christ.

Witnessing: A Matter Of Life Or Death

By Rev. Dale A. Robbins, M.Div.

James 5:20 “Let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of His way will save a

soul from death and cover a multitude of sins.”

Let’s say that you are out at the lake one-day and you spot a drowning person. What would

you do? Would you ignore their desperate condition and turn the other way? Or would you

throw them a life preserver? If you are the decent person I imagine that you are, I am

confident that you would try to do something to save that poor soul. Similarly, each day you

probably come in contact with dozens of people who are drowning without Christ in their life.

For them, it’s only a matter of time before they will go down for the last time, unless

someone like you, who has a life-preserver, can throw it their way and save their life.

Christ is the Only Answer!

The Bible says that every person who dies without their name written in the book of life will

spend all of eternity in the lake of fire. “And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was

cast into the lake of fire” (Rev. 20:15). The only way anyone’s name is added to the book of

life is by placing their faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord (Rev. 21:27). The Bible says

hat Jesus is the ONLY way that we can be saved (John 14:6, Acts 4:12). So this means that

all those without Christ will be destined to suffer endless torment in the unquenchable

flames of Hell forever, and ever, “into the fire that never shall be quenched” (Mark 9:43).

God does not want anyone to be lost. “The Lord is... not willing that any should perish but

that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). This is why He sent Jesus to become a

sacrifice for the world’s sins (John 3:16). However, who is going to tell them about this

life-saving news? Who is willing to throw them the life-preserver that can save their life from

the horrible consequences of eternity in the lake of fire? “...how shall they believe in Him of

whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14).

A Serious Responsibility

The responsibility of delivering the life-saving Gospel to the lost has been committed to all

believers. That’s right, ALL believers, not just ordained ministers, evangelists, or

missionaries. In fact, the Apostle Paul said that the ministry of reconciling people to God has

been given to all those who have been born-again, whose old life has passed away, and all

things have become new. “...if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have

passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has

reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation”

(2 Cor.5:17-18). Christians must understand that this is a very serious responsibility. It is a

matter of life or death! The consequences of what we do may determine the eternal destiny

of our friends, family, or acquaintances. There are individuals who may spend eternity in

Heaven with Christ because we told them about Jesus Christ. And even more sobering,

there may be those who suffer eternal torment in the lake of fire FOREVER, simply because

we couldn’t find the time or were too “embarrassed” to talk about Jesus! Dear believer, was

Jesus “embarrassed” of you when He hung on the cross with blood spurting from every part

of His body? Did Jesus have a problem “finding time” to suffer for you, as He dangled for

hours, nailed to a brutal, splintery cross? Of course not. And neither is there any excuse for

any believer who tries to justify their apathy for the lost! It certainly is not your responsibility

to tell the whole world about Christ. But it is indeed your duty to tell “your world,” those you

live with, who you work with, or your friends and family (Mark 16:15). You are their

missionary that God has sent to them, and it’s very possible, you may be the only

opportunity that some may ever have, to hear the message that could save their life. And if

you decide not to say anything, not to warn them, to do nothing, the Bible says that their

blood could be on your hands for eternity (Ezek. 3:18-19). Jesus was not ashamed to suffer

and die for us, let us neither be ashamed to share His life-saving message to the lost! That’s

all He asks. Just share His message. “For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, of him

the Son of Man will be ashamed when He comes in His own glory, and in His Father’s, and of

the holy angels” (Luke 9:26).

A Four-Step Plan for Effective, Daily Witnessing

(1) Live an honest and Godly life, daily, before your family, friends, and co-workers, as a

good witness and testimony of Jesus. Your efforts to share Christ will have little effect unless

they are backed up by a godly, wholesome lifestyle.

(2) Memorize or mark verses in your Bible relating to salvation, and equip yourself with tracts,

literature, or invitations to Church that you can distribute or leave in conspicuous locations.

(3) Yield your life to the Holy Spirit daily, and pray fervently that the Lord will cause your path

to cross with someone whose heart will be open to the message of Christ.

(4) When the opportunity arises in casual conversations, share your testimony of how you

found Christ. If you sense their heart is open, or when they continue to ask questions, go

further and invite them to pray and to accept Jesus. Invite persons to Church where they

can hear more about salvation and how to serve Christ.

God’s law pinpoints our problems; God’s grace provides the solution.

Sin is the disease, Christ is the cure.

True freedom is living in Christ.

Joy comes from the Lord who lives within us, not from what’s happening around us.

When someone does you wrong, do what right—love him.

Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people.

God gives enough grace for whatever we face.

Many leaders have risen to greatness, only Jesus has risen from the grave!

DECEMBER Poem

Are You My Friend?

My friend I stand in judgment now,

and feel that you’re to blame somehow.

On earth I walked with you day by day,

and never did you point the way.

You knew the Lord in truth and glory,

but never did you tell the story.

My knowledge then was very dim,

you could have led me safe to Him.

So as we lived on this earth,

you never told me of this “second birth.”

And now I stand this day condemned,

because you failed to mention Him.

We walked by day and talked by night,

and yet you showed me not the light.

You let me live and love and die,

you knew I’d never live on high!

Yes, I called you my friend for life,

and trusted you in joy and strife.

And yet in coming to the end,

I cannot call you now my friend.
