All in Gospel of John

MOVEMENTS: How 15K reached 7.4M

Whether its geese flying in formation, or buffalo’s running towards the storm, we know what it looks like when an individual goose, buffalo, or person, is part of a movement. Sometimes it is elegant, like geese flying. Other times it is terrifying, like the stampede of a buffalo. Yet what is clear is that the group is accomplishing something much larger than anyone individual can. It’s more than Teamwork (as cool as teamwork is). It goes beyond the organized, it becomes this spontaneous, almost self-fueling, “thing”, that has momentum. Today at The Pocket Testament League (PTL), we are celebrating a movement. In the last 12 months, 15,000 people reached over 7,400,000 people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That’s almost 500 people reached for each member of the PTL Movement!

Teach Kids the Gospel with The Salvation Poem

When kids learn in school, their teachers use many activities to help them remember. So as your kids study God’s truth, why not include fun learning activities then too? To do so, you can teach kids the Gospel with The Salvation Poem. The authors of The Salvation Poem, Matt and Sherry McPherson, wanted to create a tool for kids to remember the Gospel. They wanted this amazing truth of salvation depicted in a simple, unforgettable way.

Give Godly Moms an Unforgettable Mother’s Day

How do you like to celebrate Mother’s Day? Most likely, you do something special that includes all of Mom’s favorite things: maybe breakfast in bed, a sweet note, or her favorite flowers. A godly mother also loves talking about her Savior – and the Gospel is the greatest reward you can give in her honor. While you’re making Mom feel special in many ways this Mother’s Day, tell her how you’re going to share God’s Word too! A few ideas to get started.

Set Goals this New Year that Last for Eternity!

The New Year means the holidays are wrapping up.  It’s a time for savoring the past and dreaming of the future.  The festivities and the food of the past weeks all draw to a close and the long months of winter lie ahead.  That holiday high of optimism and good cheer lends itself very well to New Year’s Resolutions.  Such is the reason we start off each year with a blaze of good intentions and ambitious plans; it’s a natural time to evaluate how we want to live our lives differently!

Father’s Day: A Day of Giving Back

When the tradition of Father’s Day began over a century ago, Sonora Smart Dodd, pushed for her city to recognize her father’s birthday, June 5, to honor William Jackson Smart for his determination to sacrifice for and raise his six children alone. The city agreed and held the special event on June 19 to allow more to time to schedule events.

Now, we celebrate Father’s Day by spending time with our fathers, treating them to special meals and gifts, and looking back on memories with them. Over a century has passed, but Father’s Day still upholds the same roots as the first celebration—as a day of giving back.

National Day of Prayer: Sharing God's Word today.

“…if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Inspirational stories of the power of prayer fill the pages of the Bible. Testimonies from Jonah, Daniel, Job, David, the Apostles, and so many more demonstrate the rich tradition of prayer and its role in our relationship with Jesus, the Christ.

Spring Break! Help Students Leave With Christ, Not Regrets

Hopefully you avoided the movie "Spring Breakers" that came out in 2013. It was an indecent and offensive movie that highlighted the need for God's spirit to sweep across Florida beaches. But, it drew so much attention because it featured former wholesome Disney stars Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens in shocking lead roles. 

The movie also captured the darkness and un-Christ-like environment that young people are exposed to while on break from high school or college. Unfortunately, the darkness masquerading as light is appealing to many students who want to lose themselves for a week. We know it's our sin nature, but our culture makes it acceptable, which makes it even more appealing. 

That's why it's so important to reach future leaders and decision-makers with God's Word. 

Show Them Jesus!

n my last blog post I offered you five questions to ask when sharing the gospel. My goal was to provide an easy, non confrontational way to open up a spiritual conversation that, if the Spirit were willing, would lead to a presentation of the Good News that Jesus has come to save humanity from the penalty of sin.
