“‘All you people of the land take courage,’ declares the Lord, ‘and work; for I am with you,’ declares the Lord of hosts. ‘As for the promise which I made you when you came out of Egypt, My Spirit is abiding in your midst; do not fear!’” Haggai 2:4-5
Dear Ministry Partners,
Atlanta House Church: Alan & Suzanne. Alan is a gentleman I met while working out in the weight room. I have prayed for all the people there to come to know Christ personally. Sadly, most of them aren’t believers yet, and their time is running out - it is a senior center. It has been challenging to share Christ with a room full of people. But, recently Alan got extremely sick and wanted some of my honey to help him recover. I took some to his house. I met his wife Suzanne and the three of us had a delightful conversation about our families. They told me how happy they are their daughter started attending a Messianic church. Then I was then able to share my testimony, which led to an in-depth conversation about the gospel. They were receptive. Towards the end Alan said, “Well, I’m not a Christian. But I think it is good to have something to believe in like that.” Please pray for both of them to come to Christ!
This experience made me reconsider the impact we could have if we all cared more about those who are lost. This care would enable us to build friendships with unbelievers, to show them Christ’s love, and to share the Good News of His love and forgiveness with everyone who would listen. Imagine for a moment the impact this would have on our communities and our country! Ask God to help you see unbelievers with His eyes and have His compassion for them. Pray for God to open their hearts and convict them of their need for Jesus. Then, ask Him to help you take practical steps to show them you care. Finally, ask Him to give you boldness to speak of Him. He will surprise you! Remember His promise, “My Spirit is abiding in your midst; do not fear!’
