Step into spring by sharing the Gospel

Today is the first day of spring! This season is full of renewed life—in the flowers and trees, in the sunny weather, and in people as they laugh and enjoy the outdoors. It’s the perfect time to share about renewed life in Christ! You can do just that by joining our Walk a Mile for the Gospel challenge. Here’s how it works: Choose a spot you’d like to walk around your community, then pick a distance you can commit to. Stock up on enough pocket Gospels to pass out to everyone you meet. Go for a walk, handing out pocket Gospels along the way!

Get inspired to share the Gospel this Easter!

Need some inspiration for your Easter outreach? Check out these awesome ideas from your fellow League Members: “Pocket Testaments are given out to the attendees who seek to receive Christ at our church’s sunrise passion play.” - Robert A. from Agua Dulce, CA “Our church leaders have been invited to participate with the town's recreational program for an Easter Egg Hunt the day before Easter. We will take this as an opportunity to share the Gospel of John with many of our town's children and families.” - Kay I. from S Royalton, VT

Wonby1 - Wendy’s Story: The Reward of Sharing the Gospel

Nicole was pregnant and that wasn’t a good thing. She felt loss, helpless, unprepared and didn’t know who to turn to. What was she going to do? How was she going to care for this baby? Nicole felt like she was out of options. She needed help. And that’s when she reached out...and met Wendy. Wendy volunteers at The Nest pregnancy center in Tampa, FL. She had recently begun leading a Bible study on the book of John at the center--sharing the Pocket Gospel This Book is Alive with women in crisis. When Nicole came in for help, Wendy began to share with her about God’s love. Nicole admitted that she knew God loved her, but she couldn’t understand why. Wendy didn’t give up. She was patient. She showed Nicole love and understanding. And she gave her a copy of the Pocket Testament.

Wonby1 - Shannon’s Story: Sharing the Gospel in Everyday Life

Let’s proclaim the Gospel to all of creation! That call sounds wonderful in Sunday church or during personal devotions (see Mark 16:15). Missionaries, preachers, and Bible teachers go forward all over the world to tell the saving message of Jesus Christ. But PTL Member Shannon K. of Jefferson, Or. also takes this verse to mean that everyday people can share Christ in everyday situations too. To Shannon, it doesn’t matter whether you’re out shopping, at a restaurant, or even going to an important doctor’s appointment. Opportunities for Christ are everywhere!

Wonby1 - David's Story: Cycling with a Focus on Eternity

“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12 God’s Word is a powerful tool! When His people take the time to deliver His Word to others, God can work in mighty ways. Not many people would think to make that delivery during a bike ride. But David B. of Norwalk, CT, who runs a chapter of Christian Cycling, saw his regular rides as an opportunity. Watch as David explains exactly how he uses the Gospel while he’s out cycling.

Wonby1 - Pavel's Story: The gospel is spreading across Ukraine and Russia

Your daily news feed may make Ukraine and Russia seem like a hotbed of hostilities and even corruption, but if you asked Pavel what’s happening on the ground, he’d tell you that God is moving in powerful ways. Beyond what the headlines read, there is a hunger throughout the region for the hope and freedom Jesus Christ brings – and together with Members like you, Pavel and other partners are sharing that hope one pocket-sized gospel as a time! Hanna Novikova of Harvest Faith Church in Toliatti (Volga River region of Central Russia) writes…

3 Conversation Starters to Share Christ during the Super Bowl

After you get the conversation going, present The Ultimate Victory pocket-sized Gospel of John as a small gift they can keep. God's Word says, "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith." (1 John 5:4) Talk about the ultimate victory! Don't miss your opportunity to share it.

Christmas—Gifts—Family & Waiting

It’s Christmas Eve, and for many little ones, the waiting is almost over. When I was growing up, Christmas Eve was when we put up the tree and more. Our tradition was born, in part, from celebrating Advent, that season of preparation, that season of waiting. That tradition was also to help keep my parents sane. There were four of us, and our excitement about Christmas grew exponentially as Christmas Day approached. Filling Christmas Eve with a mountain of things to do, kept us fully occupied until we rushed to church at Midnight.

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.
