Every Believer Sharing , Every Person Hearing


From Your Director's Heart,
     God's Plan for Sharing (G.P.S.) is perhaps the greatest evangelistic outreach of all time. Why? Because it is in obedience to the command of Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20 and Acts 1:8.)
     Think about it. Every person in every community, neighborhood, town, city will be given the opportunity to say "yes" to God's love. Most important in this effort will not be the army of witnesses who will soon be mobilized, or the expertise of the denomination, or the excitement and dedication of your church and these are important.
     G.P.S. will rise or fall on an activity everyone and anyone can do, from the child to the elderly adult. Everything will rise or fall on Prayer. Jesus said to all followers, "always pray and not give up," (Luke 18:1.) Without prayer, G.P.S. 2014 will be just another pie in the sky effort. But with prayer things happen (Acts 4:31.)
     For God's plan for sharing (G.P.S.), prayer is not an option. It is imperative that each church pray for the salvation of the lost in your community, the county, the state, the nation, and the world.
     There will be a need for laborers. Where will those laborers come from? Jesus said, "Ask the Lord of the, therefore, to send out workers into the field" (Matthew 9:38.)
>Ask God to give His laborers boldness to clearly present the Gospel until everyone has heard the Good News.
>Ask God to remove excuses and fears that prevent His followers from being harvest laborers.
>Ask God to help His laborers to recognize the opportunities He gives them to share His Gospel each day.
>Ask God to make you a laborer in His harvest.
>Ask God to convict every Christian of the need to be a harvest laborer.
>Pray that every State, Association, and Church will participate in G.P.S. 2014.
     As James Spann on Channel 33/40 News says, "The time is now!"
     Every church should by now have the information needed to begin. Should you not have the G.P.S. information, we have a copy for each church/pastor.
     May the Lord bless you and your church.
