Everyday Club- update

Well, how are you doing? Have you been handing out Gospel tracts? Have you been intentionally trying to engage people in conversation?

I've been trying to hand out tracts every day this month or engage people in conversation. The highlight of this month happened when I got to phone fish for Ambassador's Alliance Radio. That was really fun and it really stretched me. I had about twenty-five minutes to find someone. So, I prayed God would send me a fish in less than 20 minutes. He did it and two people got to hear the Gospel. One of the most difficult places to share the Gospel, in my opinion, is the South. So many people are Gospel hardened. They have heard it all before since they were in diapers and they don't believe it applies to them because they are basically good people who go to church.

I have handed out some tracts everyday so far. I have been to a Festival and handed out hundreds and then I went to Sam's Club today and handed out two. You want consistency not quantity. If you've never handed out a tract, try it. If you can't muster up the courage, try stuffing them in magazines or books at stores you visit.

I look forward to the new year. I have had a lot of growth through a most difficult situation. I believe it has changed how I view situations and people and hope that it will help me to continue to never quit. Looking forward to the New Year, I hope to be more consistent about sharing my experiences in hope that it will encourage you to share your faith.

Everyday Club

One of the best ways to be consistent about sharing your faith is handing out Gospel tracts- they always know what to say and never get tongue-tied. I joined Steve Sanchez's everyday club earlier this year. Click here if you want to check out his blog: http://stonethepreacher.com/category/everyday-club. The goal is not to engage in sanctimonious, pharisetical tally marks. It's just to be used to help you stay actively committed to sharing the Gospel.

Well, I made it to December and while I know I've been more obedient this year and shared my faith consistently and biblically, I have never had a month that I handed out a tract EVERY single day. There are just days I don't leave the house. I work from home and don't always need to go out. God, isn't going to strike me dead if I don't. It's a condition of the heart. I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could engage in conversations about Christ and if I could hand out a Gospel tract EVERY day.

So, this month I promised I would get in my car every day and go somewhere, anywhere and hand out tracts. I also wanted to challenge myself to try to hand out tracts everyday since I had never done that before.

So, here it is the 15th of December and I'm 100%! I have handed out a tract at least every day and when possible, I try to engage in conversation. Pray that I am able to meet my goal and not miss a single day. I'm still thinking about where to go on Christmas Day since almost everything will be closed. But, there is a truck stop on the interstate about 15 miles from here. So, if I have to I'll go there. You know, it says we should take the Gospel to the highways and the biways... :)

It's Called Christmas

Just thought I'd share a humorous reminder of what the Christmas season is all about.
