Christmas—Gifts—Family, Part Two

In Part One I joked about that Christmas classic, “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.” All kidding aside, as we seek to reach our loved ones for Jesus, we do not want them thinking, I got run over by a Christian! I doubt people truly seeking Jesus ever felt run over by him. Yes, the religious of his day—ever challenging him—got clobbered, but they were not truly seeking him. For those who seek him, his presence is grace-filled. Yet many may not be seeking him, and we want to invite them to meet Jesus. If your heart aches for those you love to meet Jesus, what can you do? Take your lead from Jesus.

Wonby1 - Sue’s Story: Oh, the Overwhelming Love of Jesus

God’s timing is always perfect. He alone knows people’s hearts. And He knows when those hearts are most ready to receive His love. One day, that perfect moment happened right before Sue’s eyes. Sue was simply walking across a parking lot with two friends that day. She saw a young man sitting in his car, and immediately felt the Holy Spirit leading her to talk to him. Laying aside any doubts or fears, Sue accepted the call to action.

Christmas—Gifts—Family, Part One

Christmas: it comes with gifts of all shapes and sizes and prices. It has its own genre of music, which somehow includes “Silent Night” and “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.” You are legitimately authorized to bring trees and other items that shed into your home. There are a disproportionate number of parties. Acceptable fashion runs the gamut from tasteful to terrible, with terrible having its own cottage industry

Wonby1 - Nina’s Story: A Nudge in God’s Direction

Sometimes, all people need is a listening ear and a caring nudge back to God. One League Member, Nina, decided to take time to do just that. Nina found herself a little farther from home than usual one day. Although not around any familiar faces, Nina used the opportunity to talk about God. “Yesterday I was in a different area which is located an hour from where I live, and I met 3 people that I was able to hand out the Gospel of John to,” Nina said.

Wonby1 - Jane’s Story: An Open Door

God’s Word is an open door. People simply need to know about Him so they can walk through that door.  – And right into a relationship with Him. Jane and others at her pregnancy help center love leaving that door wide open for people who come into their clinic. “At our Pregnancy Help Center, we often pray we are able to hand a Book of John to our clients and they would be receptive to hearing the Gospel,” Jane said.

Wonby1 - Ksenia’s Story

Ksenia is a young woman who often walks down the streets of her hometown Kalinigrad, a small city set just off of Poland. Many residents overlook its beautiful seaport every day. But many of the people there have never heard about Jesus Christ. Thankfully, believers like Ksenia are willing to show them the true light and peace found in the Gospel.  

Wonby1 - Mark’s Story

Mark was just eating lunch at the local grocery store’s deli. But as you probably know, when the Holy Spirit is working, even the simplest of moments can make an eternal difference. “I just gave a young woman a Gospel of John and then went back to my sandwich,” Mark shares. But what Mark didn’t know was that he was the last stop in this woman’s journey to faith… a journey God had been leading her on for some time.

5 Ways to Share Christ over Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving is a beautiful time to fill up, slow down, and contemplate God’s provision and goodness in our lives. Our appreciation of fall bounty is dulled, however, by the fact that we rarely lack food on our tables any other time of year.

Here are five ways you can kick the drowsiness this Turkey Day and energize your Thanksgiving sharing.

Wonby1 - Burt’s Story: A Hurricane of Hope

Hopeless. That’s how many people in North Carolina have felt in the wake of Hurricanes Florence and Michael. The damage alone is enough to leave anyone desperate and uncertain. However, League Member Burt and many others who are part of the disaster recovery in Lumberton, North Carolina are determined to shed hope in a hopeless situation.

Living Water WILL Flow from Us

On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” - John 7:37-38. As Christians, we hold near and dear the Word of God that led us to know our wonderful Savior, Jesus.  Romans 10:17 says “faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” In that sense we know that there is no way to even know about Jesus outside of what Scripture tells us!
