Act Like An E-Christian
The book of Acts is more than just a history of the early Church. It is one of the first recorded evangelical resources used to share the Gospel. Without access to the internet, Google Maps, or Facebook, Luke, the author of the book of Acts, captured over 30 years of church history, the start of dozens of new congregations, and thousands upon thousands who committed their lives to Jesus. Luke meticulously recorded all of this just to share the Gospel with a friend. Since none of us want to type up a 28-chapter text to help us share the Gospel with those in our circles of influence, we can use Luke’s letter as our evangelical resource. This devotional, based on the book of Acts, will serve as a guide to help share the love of Christ with those in your circles of influence, show the love of Christ to them with your actions and posts, and invite them to be recipients of God’s amazing love.
Hi My Name is Jonah
The book of Jonah is probably one of the most familiar books of the Bible. Whilst many are familiar with the fish story, few are familiar with God's passionate desire for Jonah to step across racial, cultural, and political lines to share God's message of salvation and repentance. These are the same lines that many Christ-followers refuse to cross today. Although it is likely none of us will end up spending a long weekend in the belly of a large fish if we don't cross those lines, we can use Jonah's account as a prayer guide to help us break down the walls of division that are dividing our congregations, communities, and our nation. This devotional, based on the book of Jonah, will serve as a guide to help share the love of Christ with those in our circles of influence who may not look like us, vote like us, or who have different cultural beliefs.
