Mark 16:15 (NIV) – He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.
Today’s writing prompt was globally. Again, I have been stumped how to even begin this one, but as I pondered on that verse in Mark I posed the question to myself what am I and my husband doing to share God’s love locally and globally. I’ll share some thoughts here and would appreciate you sharing your thoughts of how you do that in your family.
- Blogging – My whole reason for blogging has been to share Him with people all over the World and locally too. It’s to leave a legacy to not only my grandchildren but generations to come. Every day I see where people are reading something I wrote all over the World. I am so thankful that God led me here several years ago.
- Bible-Studies – I love on-line Bible studies. I especially love Proverbs 31 Online Bible Studies. I believe God led me there while surfing after I retired to find something on-line. I never dreamed where I would be today three years later as a volunteer Team Leader. Again, we lead the studies for women all over the World. These studies have changed my life, and so many others. The more we are in the Word, the more our lives are changed to reflect Him. I also participate locally at my church in our Bible studies – a way to meet new women you don’t get to meet when there are several services. How about having one in your home? We used to do that a lot, but haven’t recently – it’s a great way to invite neighbors over.
- Missionaries – Our church is very mission focused. We have over ???? missionaries. We support that not only monetarily but prayer. Every week our bulletin features one of our missionaries with prayer needs.
- Coffee – Our church has a weekly coffee. I love it but seldom get to go. It’s just women coming together each week to talk, pray, watch a video, and share over a cup of coffee. The church just went through an 8-week coffee on Wednesday mornings and now they have switched to Wednesday evenings. It’s another way of ministry to invite someone you know and bring them with you and it’s not uncomfortable.
- Facebook – Yes, Facebook. Several years ago I made a commitment that I would not share anything negative on Facebook and that it would be uplifting and Godly. Honestly, sometimes it’s hard, but so far I’ve managed to do that. I share our Bible studies and my blog posts for others to see. Hopefully, I’m making a difference.
- Compassion Child – We sponsor a compassion child in ????? and have been. I love adding little scripture cards in the mail to her. It’s a great way to minister overseas.
- Substitute Teaching – After retirement I went into the public school system not for the money, but to meet and bless others and share Jesus however I can. I do that. It’s not easy, but I do have many opportunities for others to know I am a Christian, and I can sit there and pray for the students as they are working.
- Neighbors – Being available if they need something. Be the light. Have them over for coffee, ice cream or a meal.
- Telemarketers – Okay honestly I haven’t done this yet, but I am starting. I read on a blog sometime back how a lady would say let me ask you some questions, and she does that. I printed it out. I need to get it out and set it by the phone.
- Shopping – Smile, say “God bless you”, “How are you doing”and “Thank you”, and don’t forget to say,
Merry Christmas” when they say “Happy Holidays”. Be the light.
- Driving – What can I say? Are you a polite driver or a rude driver? Do you have a Jesus sign on your car, and you get mad when someone cuts in front of you or tailgates you?
I fretted over this post and how to write about global, but now I am so glad I did because it shows me I am making an attempt at sharing Jesus globally and locally.
How about you?
This post is part of the #write31 day challenge.
