The church is exploding in Asia, Africa, and South America. "In 1900 there were fewer than 9 million Christians in Africa. Now there are more than 541 million" (Article, The Church is growing, and here are the figures to prove it, Christianity today, March 5, 2015).
How exciting to be a part of God's supernatural movement of eternal kingdom growth.
The question for you to answer is, do your plans this weekend include God's church? Will you be in worship service to join others in worship?
Will you volunteer or work in some area of ministry this weekend?
Are you actively sharing your faith, by sharing the gospel, offering to pray for, and showing the love of Jesus in practical ways to non-Christian's?
Who are you inviting to church to hear the Word of God taught and preached and to be in worship and fellowship?
How are you contributing to keeping the church growing?
Even if you are on vacation, contribute to the kingdom. Smile and be loving to non-Americans if you are out of the US. If you are non-American, be loving to Americans (many of us will smile back and positively respond to your kindness).
American Christians, we can show love to non-American customer service representatives over the phone. Ask them at the end of your transaction if they know Jesus (witness to them).
How are you including God in your weekend plans?
