People feel good when they realize their lives can beneficially affect others and that’s what I’m going to be sharing today.
I imagine most Christians have heard of the verses in Luke which say there is rejoicing in heaven when one sinner repents but have you ever thought that the rejoicing could be the result of work you did in connection with God?
The great joy in heaven talked about in Luke appears to be in conjunction with a human’s salvation, which includes repentance. And, our evangelism efforts, with God’s powerful help, can be the work which moves a person from sin and and it’s penalty, to righteousness in their forever life with God after death.
Just think about this thought from Floyd McElveen’s book, “Unashamed: A burning passion to share the gospel”; “How wonderful to know that, by the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit working through us, we can bring men and women to Christ to be saved forever, and cause all of heaven to rejoice!”
Would that be wonderful to know? I can’t imagine how it couldn’t be and I hope this ‘Encouragement Effort’ spurs us all toward greater involvement in sharing our faith with those God puts in our lives.
But Wait, There’s More
