The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.
Proverbs 11:25

I believe the hardest part of evangelism is getting started. But once you get started, and once God starts speaking through you, it can be one of the most joyful things you have ever done. To think that God almighty would speak through someone like you or me is indeed a great privilege. It is an honor to go and tell others about Jesus. And I love all the challenges that I face from day to day in doing so. God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is Good!

The gospel was not designed to be hoarded; it was designed to be shared. You were blessed to be a blessing. Therefore as you take in, you need to give out that message again so others can come into a relationship with God. One of the greatest joys you will ever experience, next to knowing the Lord himself, is when you have the privilege of praying with someone to accept Christ. You start seeing the radical, even visible, changes that will take place in your life. We are told in Proverbs 11:25, “Those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.” It is refreshing as you give back and help other people.

We have a choice either to evangelize or fossilize, and a lot of people have chosen the latter. While it may be true that we are not all called to be evangelists, we are all called to evangelize. And the place to start is at the beginning. We reach the world with the gospel one person at a time.

You can personalize Jesus’ command to “go and make disciples of all the nations” (Matthew 28:19) by going to your world. Go to your workplace. . . . Go to your family. . . . You have a sphere of influence. You have a group of people who will listen to what you have to say. Go to that world—the world to which God has called you. It was very scary to make a decision in which I originally did not know or understand but, it was very easy to make it once I found the Lord. Once you find your personal Jesus, your life will change. You will be blessed immensely and you will prosper. Remember, the road to a life with God is not an easy road but, it is very rewarding once you’ve traveled it a few times. You will be tested, you will suffer but, you are not alone. We are all the children of the Lord.

May the Lord continue to Bless you all today!

Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.
– Colossians 4:1

Most if not all the Saints from the Bible had a close relationship with God, through their prayer’s. In both, good times and bad times, they prayed to the Lord that He would guide them on their path’s. They would thank Him for everything that they were blessed to receive and go through… Regardless if it was good or bad. They knew, they were special enough in God’s eye to receive whatever the Lord gave.

I personally have a very close relationship towards prayer. I have gone through so much that, this is the one thing I can do and count on regardless of what happens to me. In my trails. Throughout my tribulations, I can count on my prayer and my relationship with God to help me through the thick of it.

As we read this beautiful passage in Colossians 4:1 , “Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart;” what comes to your mind when we read this?

You know, devoting your time, and I mean all of it to our God and being happy to do so is the key towards success. Success in what… is what you have to ask yourself. What drives you? Who drives you? I know my answer is… God. God alone should be in control of your lives. I am not saying I am perfect; Oh no. Funny to even write that. What I am trying to say is God should guide your every move towards the greater good of whatever it is that the Lord has in mind for you.

Let God lead you. Lead God rule you. Let God be in control. Give yourself to our Lord.

Have you been saved? Well… Now is the time to do so. Raise your hands and open your hearts to the Lord and ask Him to come into your lives and trust me, you will be happy.
