Evangelistic Day on 23rd August 2008

Matthew 28:16-20 (New International Version)

The Great Commission

16Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

The Great Commission! That is the last words Jesus spoke on earth before he ascended back to Heaven. Alot of scholars mentioned that last words are always the most important words. It even sounded like a command to all his disciples.

As His disciples, all of us have the responsibility in spreading the Gospel. It doesn't matter whether it is overseas or local, evangelism is a major calling in Christian living. Testimonies of our lives are a crucial part in bringing someone to Christ.

Have you share with someone about Christ today? Or rather you have always wanted to do so but couldn't find the time and courage to do that? Maybe you thought sending fwd emails about Christ is enough on doing evangelism on your part.

August 23rd is a good opportunity for us to practise telling strangers about Christ. How Christ has transformed our lives, how He being our Saviour of eternal life in Heaven. We will be using the "5 Colours Beads" as a starting tool to explain about Salvation and a chance to share your testimony.

Afraid of being speechless in front of strangers? Fear not! We can do anything with God's strength! You are not alone in this Evangelism Activity. Besides, there will be a training on how to use the "5 Colour Beads" effectively on 4th August 2008 at 8pm in church. Anyone who wants to come pls inform me so that I can arrange for transportation.

Hope to hear about your participation in this Evangelism Activity. God loves you and me and He loves Pekan too! Immanuel! :)
