Every Faith Child is commissioned to be a gospel promoter when Jesus said “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel.” How many people did you share the gospel with in 2012? This is a brand new year to seize every opportunity to tell about Jesus Christ our Saviour and Lord.
Are you identified as a “Child of God”? i.e. do you publicly declare that you are a child of God?
Do you exude love, joy, peace, gentleness, faith, goodness, meekness, long suffering, temperance, doing all good? – Are you dispaying the fruit of the Spirit with the Holy Spirit’s help?
In the presence of others
-Do you speak about God’s love and praise Him in all circumstances?
– Do you chafe, grumble and complain when things do not turn out according to your wish?
– Are you out of control in times of adversity and run around like a headless chicken, trying to seek someone or anyone who can help?
– Do you commit the matter to the Lord first, before you proceed in a controlled fashion to seek resolution later?
– Is prayer ie. calling on the name of the Lord, your first reaction in a crisis?
– Do you lose your temper and wag your tongue uncontrollably?
When there is a need in your family, church or workplace
– Do you volunteer with what help you can give or slink away and say under your breath “None of my business – it is theirs to resolve”?
Do you lavish all the blessings of God on yourself only?
Do you share your blessings with the needy?
Do you do unto others what you would not have them do to you?
Are you interested and participate in evangelistic efforts of your church or other para-church organizations?
Have you invited your family, friends and associates for any evangelistic event?
Do you share your testimonies of answered prayers with family, friends, colleagues?
Have you been involved in foreign or local missions? Do you pray, contribute and support and encourage those involved in missions projects or work?
Have you attended a missionary conference?
Do you know what it means to be a gospel promoter?
Is it your daily prayer, “Lord help me to share your love with someone today”?
So you may share, are you digging into the Word to know more about the will, purposes and plans of God for Faith Child?
Are you supporting a missionary work, missionary in prayer?
Are you giving financial support to missionaries?
Are you giving encouragement to missionaries, fellow believers, in evangelism and missions by attending, inviting prospects, providing services like singing in choir or presenting a skit and testimonies?
He has done great things for me
Does God care about me?
Jesus paid it all
All to Him we owe – will you tell someone about Him? Will you share Him with someone?
Are you consistent in the promotion of the gospel?
Are you religiously following the rules without your face showing the joy of the Lord?
In the words of an old hymn
Have I done any good in the world today?
Have I helped anyone in need?
Have I cheered up the sad and made someone feel glad?
If not, I have failed indeed.
Has anyone’s burden been lighter today
Because I was willing to share?
Have the sick and the weary been helped on their way?
When they needed my help was I there?
Then wake up and do something more
Than dream of your mansion above.
Doing good is a pleasure, a joy beyond measure,
A blessing of duty and love.
