A singer and songwriter by the name of Gordon Jensen wrote a song some years ago which mentions the fact that you and I as Christians are the only “Jesus” that many people will see.
No, this does not mean we are Jesus Himself of course. We know He is Jesus all by Himself, yet it should be our goal and desire to be just a bit more like Him every day by sharing what Christ is like. We are to be “lights” in a dark world!

Some of you who were brought up in the church may remember something called “testimony service”. This was a special time when people would get up to declare the works of the Lord in their own lives. This had a couple of purposes as it served to remind them and “cement” that in their hearts that God cares for them personally, but it also served as a way to inspire and bless others who might have been going through much of the same thing at that point in life.

Have you ever heard a statement similar to this? “Well, I would love to be able to go to church, but it’s hard for me to do when I see all the hypocrites there.”
While you may have not heard those exact words, you’ve probably heard a variation of some kind and perhaps wondered a bit if you were being accused of being a hypocrite. None of us want to be considered in such a way, yet this is the impression often left in the wake of such a statement.
Love makes ALL the difference! We’ve perhaps heard that many times, yet I wanted to take a few moments to share this reminder with you that it truly does make ALL the difference, especially when it’s the love of God being referred to! I believe today if we are ever going to share God’s love with those around us, we first need to experience it in our own lives.
As I was reading various scriptures having to do with the love God has for us, I came across the following which was actually a prayer the Apostle Paul was offering to God on behalf of the church at Ephesus while he was in prison for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I wanted to take a moment to send you this letter of invitation to our upcoming special Revival Services with Evangelist (FIRST NAME, LAST NAME), which will be held here at (NAME OF CHURCH) on OCTOBER 20-23.
Have you ever wondered how you can get involved in Evangelism? Some people hear the word “evangelism” and immediately put up the stop sign in their minds, believing it’s only for the bold and bombastic who are strong enough to share their faith.
I am glad to inform you that our Ushering Board has planned an Ushering Day Program that will be held on (DATE) at (TIME), here at (NAME OF CHURCH), and we would appreciate it if you would reserve this time on your busy schedule to motivate our young ones about the importance of evangelism.
