Philip told Nathaniel that he had found the Messiah that they were anticipating. Just the same, we as believers hold a responsibility to reveal to the lost that we have found the One they have been looking for! I hope you enjoy this quick encouragement in sharing the good news!

The grace we give differs greatly from the grace of Jesus. In our fleshly minds, we often limit our outpouring of grace to the ones we feel deserve it or those we feel will respond to it.
When we hear the word evangelism, we often think of talking to strangers about Jesus. somewhere in the back of our minds we have relegated sharing the gospel only with those that we don’t know.
One thing I believe we can all agree on when it comes to the modern American Church is that it has made a very recent push to be relevant. And it’s done a very good job.

I have been reading through the book of Acts over the past couple of weeks. It’s amazing how these men of God in the early church were radically risking their lives to speak of the goodness of Jesus. Throughout the New Testament, we see acts of persecution come by way of imprisonment, physical beatings, and stoning, but time and time again, we see persistence and zeal for Jesus prevail over these fatal risks. Nothing could stop these guys. They all assumed that they were going to lose their lives for the sake of sharing the gospel, and most of them did.
It’s the holiday season. It’s that time of year where diets are thrown out the window and the smell of turkey, ham and green bean casserole fill the air unashamedly.

Over a year ago, I found myself in a tough place in my relationship with Jesus. After listening to a powerful message on the love of God that was demonstrated through the cross, I began struggling with the reality that I had zero emotions when I thought about the blood and what Jesus had done for me. I felt like my soul had become numb to the gospel story. I began questioning my salvation and whether the cross ever had transformation power in my life.
