People do many things, for the love of God. There are those who feel that they have a specific calling in their lives to live and accomplish a great mission, or purpose. I’d like to underscore that by saying that we each have been born to praise God; and, to do the great commission which is; to bring the “good news” of Jesus, God’s son, to those who do not know him so that they may have an opportunity to accept him as Lord and Savior of their lives. By doing so, and repenting of their sins…committing their days and nights to living according to the word of God and it’s instructions; they will be used by God to accomplish many things in their lifetime.
I believe that just being aware of the world around you and noticing where the acceptance of God is lacking and doing your best to be of service in some way; of bringing a light or help to those who are in need, is a ministry itself. Some have a pull on their hearts to teach, preach, do missions work, or evangelize. There are others who are drawn to a particular effort of outreach which may be to take Bibles into areas of the world which have little or no access to the word. Then again, there are those with an online ministry to edify or build up disciples such as the Live Sticky movement which encourages people to spend a portion of their online time being dedicated to bringing awareness of God to those that they impact. These are all ministries that are needed. To continue reading click here: Write Where You Are

Wow, all i can say is TGIF…thank God it’s Friday. This week has been long, drawn out, stressful and then again at the same time, it has been encouraging as well. God answered an urgent prayer in an amazing way.
The situation i referred to earlier in the week about saying a sad goodbye to a young member of our youth group was worked out for the good by none other than God in heaven above.
It was resolved in a way that none of us were able to foresee and the young man will be able to stay in the area and finish school, maintain his relationships and continue to grow as a young Christian. This is not to mention the potential dangerous situation that God rescued him from! God is good…and now the young man has an opportunity to see that he is valuable to God and to others that care for him; he hasn’t had much of that in his young life. (more…)
