Counterfeits are skilled at deception. Spotting a counterfeit requires discernment. Discernment comes from knowing God’s Word.
Many of us want to share or pass on our faith to our kids, our grandkids, our friends, and any others God brings across our path. But when we think carefully about it, do we understand what we’re trying to achieve? If not we can easily and unwittingly undermine our efforts.
Because faith in Christ isn’t about morality, doctrinal precepts, or church traditions, sharing our faith is not about passing on a set of morals, doctrines, or church traditions.
Instead, we want to pass on love for the Lord. By changing our question from how do I pass on my faith to others? to how do I live so as to cultivate a love for Christ in others? we shift our focus.
Do you spend a lot of time surrounded by those who don’t know Christ? Here’s what Chuck Swindoll says will be sure to win the world’s attention more than anything else.
Often, God does spectacular work on our ordinary days—one conversation, one cup of coffee, one troubled soul at a time.
Satan uses the weapons of lies and deception to attack, blind, and hold people. Engaging in evangelism means engaging in spiritual hand-to-hand combat for the souls of men and women, boys and girls.
Christ died for us to give us eternal life. How can we not show grace and compassion to others knowing this? Compassion is a direct result of accepting Christ into our hearts.
I’m going to say it straight: If you are a believer and you are not actively participating in fulfilling the Great Commission, you are not obeying the Lord’s calling on your life.
Just before His ascension into heaven, Jesus delivered a mandate to His followers commonly known as “The Great Commission.” Our goal is to discover how this decree from Jesus applies to life today.
We may not be able to reach millions of people, but we can impact our neighbour... our co-worker... our friend. Reaching the world starts with just one person.
The same power that first pushed up the mountains moves within the simple words of the Gospel: Jesus died for sinners and is alive today. Believe in Him, receive His forgiveness, and follow Him into the life God intended.
Are you free to proclaim the name of Christ where you live? Chuck Swindoll does not take that freedom for granted and encourages us to pray for more to hear the Gospel.
