We are excited about this month's congregation encouragement video!
Frequently when TrueLife.org attends conferences, pastors visit our booth to share stories of how using TrueLife.org has impacted the life of their church. This month, we have decided to share stories with you from a pastor and a Director of Missions. Watch and listen as both men share stories about individuals who have used the TrueLife.org invitation cards to spread the Gospel of Christ in their community.
Romans 10:14-17 says, “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?” So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
The task of evangelism is the responsibility of every believer. It is up to every believer to carry the light of the gospel into their community. Friends, neighbors, folks at gas stations, grocery stores, and drive thru’s, all need to hear about Jesus. They can’t believe if they never hear, and they will never hear without someone telling them.
To make the most of this video, preach an evangelism-oriented message. At the end of the message, hand out five cards to everyone and show this compelling TrueLife.org encouragement video. After the video plays, ask the congregation, “How many of you can commit to handing out invitation cards this week?” The entire congregation should raise their hands! Capitalize on this pivotal moment by telling them that next week you'll be checking up on them, to see whether or not they did. We receive regular reports from churches that utilize the cards in this way saying that seventy to eighty percent of their congregation had invited someone to church in the the following weeks! We are praying for you and look forward to reaching out to you again soon!
Because of Jesus, Jesse Connors, M.Div. Founder of TrueLife.org
