Word Wednesdays

Hi Folks! 
I'm so excited to introduce to you a soon to be regular guest blogger! He is a wonderful, handsome, incredibly intelligent and funny man that is very very close to my heart. 

I introduce to you the one and only hubby of mine, Dave!
He will be here sharing 'Word Wednesdays' with you.

You are probably wondering what "Word Wednesdays" is. My hubby has been sending a weekly devotional on facebook to our Youth in the church and I thought I would share it with you as well here (With Hubby's permission of course!) So every wednesday, be sure to expect my hubby sharing God's word. 

So here it is, today's 
Word Wednesday:

Last Sunday’s message has placed a burden in my heart to want to proclaim God to the world. The only problem is the world is so big I don’t know where to begin. There is debate on how to spread the Gospel and I don’t know the “right answer.” 

I look at the book of acts that takes apostles from the death of Jesus to spread of the Church.
I know that it everything has to start with prayer and the Holy Spirit. Acts 1:4-5 “Once when eating with them, He commanded them, do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift He promised, as I told you before John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2 they received the Holy Spirit comes. Acts 2:42 they create a community with a common goal to spread the word. They go to Major Cites where the news can travel to remote places.
As soon as the word gets out persecution begins Acts 5:17-41 and even one is stoned to death Acts 8:59. The persecution creates a good result (God can use any situation for good this is where you say Amen) the believers scatter and spread the news all over. 

So where do you stand in sharing the word of God? 

What motivates you to share the word of God?

We should not feel guilty and pressured into sharing the word but it should be something we do out of great joy and love for what God has done to spear us.

Open your heart to God in prayer and ask Him to tell you how he wants to use you for His glory. Be bold enough to speak in situations where you will be made fun of. If you are not bold enough ask for boldness in your prayers. Be ready to share the fact that Jesus Christ is the only way and how He has made you into a new person

I am still at the prayer stage.

Love you in Jesus
