The Bible talks much about achieving Goals. So does Life Coaching!
Paul the Apostles Mission Statement was to “press towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” (Phil 3:13) In other words, Paul was committed to pursuing the goal of God’s purpose for his life. As Christians our Goal is the same. Our Goal is to achieve God’s call upon our lives; a goal that can only be achieved ‘In Christ Jesus’.
I don’t believe God would give us a Goal we’d find too easy to achieve in our human ability. God the Father is glorified through our faith in Jesus Christ alone to get the job done.
Only Jesus can achieve God’s call upon our life. So, what is the Goal you have to fulfil God’s purpose and plan for your life? Just think of the amount of people in your sphere of influence you could reach with the love of God. That’s not to put undue pressure on you. Indeed I know only too well how challenging this issue of reaching out to the unsaved can be. It’s Scary! And yet the disappointment of not sharing our faith is sometimes greater than if we had shared our faith!
So, here goes with a few timely Christmas Tips to help share your faith with unsaved friends, neighbours and family.
1. How about going Carol Singing; but go a little further in capitalising on the moment by sharing the Gospel to whoever may turn up – in a nice Christmassy sort of way.
2. Invite friends, associates, fellow co-workers to a local Christmas Celebration; one which brings a very clear message that Jesus Christ came to destroy the works of the Devil! (1 John 3:8) P.S. Anything to do with the Devil generally encourages discussion!
3. Invite your neighbours round for a mince pie and sherry. Try have a real conversation about how they’ve been recently: any problems, aches, pains or emotional struggles. Then ask them if they would like prayer for healing. If they’re not sure give them another sherry!
I hope you find these Christmas Tips encouraging. Meanwhile, any other Tips you can add to these would be appreciated, along with any Testimonies.
