"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8)
The book of Acts records the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ, from the city of Jerusalem to the whole province of Judea, and Samaria, and ultimately through out the Roman Empire and beyond. These first-century Christians were sold out for the cause of Christ. They transformed their world, as their lives became living epistles of the good news of Jesus Christ.
May I say, God has called us to a life style of evangelism, in which we build relationships with non-Christians. These friendships in turn become natural bridges for communicating the gospel. Child of God take a close look at Colossians 4:2-6 to learn how to become more effective as an instrument of the Holy Spirit, in bringing others to Christ. And remember! your task is not to convince people, but to testify of the truth of the Gospel. May God bless you.

God's Highest Priority

Our intimacy with God...His highest priority for our lives...determines the impact of our lives. [Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." GENESIS 1:26] When God created us, He made us like Himself, therefore we have the capacity for close, personal fellowship with Him.
Knowing that we were created in God's image gives us a sense of self-worth. Human worth is not based on possessions, achievements, physical attractiveness, or public acclaim, no! it's based on being made in God's image. To look down on someone is to criticize what God has made and the abilities He has given that person. May I say, that in Genesis 1:31 God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. Child of God you are part of God's creation, and He is pleased with how He made you. If at times you feel worthless or of no value, remember that you are valuable to God and that He created you for a reason. Don't let Satan steal that truth from you. May God bless you.
