Get Creative.

Our world is full of needs. There are countless opportunities and ways for us to reach out to those around us; we simply have to open our eyes. We have to train ourselves to see the world through a new perspective, “What can we do to serve those around us?” Sometimes it is even helpful to ask yourself “What could I use right now?”  Matthew 25:35-40 

 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 
 The opportunities are endless, we just have to pause and notice them.

    GROUP TO GROUP
  • As a Christian ministry group there is so much that you can do to help spread the word and make a big difference in the lives of others by meeting not only their physical needs but the spiritual needs as well.  Because the needs in the world are so great it becomes a heavy task for individuals but its more than conquerable as a group!   Don't forget that our main purpose is to seek the lost and in doing so we have to meet the needs then teach the word.  What better way as a group to show support to others in need as you give them so much more than physical support but a support that can save their spiritual souls!  Small groups are great ways to shoulder the work with others and teach those in need that they are love, supported and that there is a place for them to get the support they need and the healing they desire.  Small groups are wonderful opportunities for believers to reach out to those far from God

    ONE TO ONE

  • Take the time to reach out to someone and share the word. Encourage someone to read God's word.  If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
    James 1:5 NIV21-Day Bible Reading Challenge Research shows that it takes 21 days to form a habit. Why not take the next 21 days and get into the habit of reading God’s Word? By reading through the Gospel of John, you’ll hear Jesus teach, see Him at work and discover He is the Light of the World, the Good Shepherd and the Savior God promised.

    DOOR TO DOOR
  • DOOR TO DOOR 
    It’s easy to string together a lengthy list of reasons why not to go door-to-door, in some form of evangelistic effort.  All of us would probably admit that “door-knocking” is not the most productive means of evangelism. Talking with one’s friends, relatives, work associates, etc. (those with whom one has already established a relationship of some kind) is undoubtedly a more fruitful field than door-to-door work. However, door-to-door work is just another, among several, ways to reach out to the community with the gospel.

    We must not limit all of our preaching to within the walls of the church building and then wonder why we are not reaching the lost in our neighborhoods. If preaching to ourselves is not effectively reaching the community, perhaps you might consider some alternative approaches, including door-to-door evangelism.

In both the Old and New Testaments, we see God’s desire for His children to show compassion to the poor and needy. Jesus said that the poor would always be with us (Matthew 26:11Mark 14:7). He also said that those who show mercy to the poor, the sick, and the needy are in effect ministering to Him personally (Matthew 25:35–40) and will be rewarded accordingly. 
 
Jesus commanded us to love one another (John 13:34–35). And what better way to demonstrate the love and kindness and compassion of Jesus Christ than by reaching out to the “least of these” among us?
