“I am not a Christian because I am strong and have it all figured out. I am a Christian because I am weak and admit I need a Saviour.” — Unknown
No one can achieve Heaven for what they have done, but for what Christ had done for them. Although good works will not get anyone higher than the coffin lid, a Christian is to do good works. He is to do them, not to earn Heaven, but to be a good Christian example. We should be a blessing to others because we love the Saviour, and want to be obedient to His commandments. When we shine our Christian “light” others may see God’s goodness and will also turn to Him.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Mat. 5:16
Since we are God’s community that called to shine before men, lets shine together for Jesus as a Connect Group. Bless someone in your community today!
- Pray for God to use your Connect Group to shine for Jesus in your community.
- Pray for oikos – will be open to the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
