Web Evangelist Prayer Request - MORE WORKERS IN THE FIELD!
Web Evangelist Scott Reese is developing a website to recruit volunteers for Web Evangelism, and Christian Internet Ministry.
See http://christcares.org/ for more information and videos of Christian Testimonies of lives touched by the gospel. BODY OF CHRIST CARES promotes volunteerism not only for Christian Internet Ministry but also traditional missionary endeavors.
There is a lost world that GOD SO LOVES that needs to hear the GOOD NEWS of John 3:16.
As we consider this, it is our prayer that we will follow Christ's example of compassion. One of my favorite passages is Matthew 9:36 - 38 when Christ viewed Jerusalem:
"But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
Across America and around the world, there are multitudes who are weary, without direction, yet open to the gospel. They need to know that GOD CARES.
We believe that the world will know that God cares when it sees that the BODY OF CHRIST CARES.
Across America and around the world there are many wonderful & dedicated churches, organizations, missionaries, and Christian individuals that are endeavoring to make a difference. The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few - they are in great need of help.
There are unprecedented mission opportunities now to get the gospel out to this world of over six billion! We must pray that the Lord will send more workers into this ripe harvest field!
OUR CHALLENGE: AS YOU PRAY, REMEMBER AS A MEMBER OF THE BODY OF CHRIST - YOU HAVE A UNIQUE ROLE IN THE HARVEST FIELD.
We must not just fill our lives with the leisure and luxury of America during this time of reaping. Every individual in the BODY OF CHRIST is important and is crafted by God for unique ministry (Eph. 2:10).
We believe that there is now a great move of God, a revival that is bigger than any individual or organization. We believe that there is a multitude of Christians that are tired of playing church and want to be involved in practical ministry - making a difference in someones life.
There is an inner restlessness. Christians were created to serve (to love God and others). When one is not actively involved in sharing one's faith (through word or deed) there is an inner restlessness.
Imagine a beautiful Thoroughbred Horse inside a brand new barn filled with all the "horse comforts" possible: plenty of hay, water, and food. Imagine though what would happen if the barn doors were locked closed and were never opened. Even though the horse had a comfortable atmosphere, it would become restless because the Thoroughbred horse was created to run. Christians who are not involved in ministry are in the same situation - because we were created to serve. Although it does not make sense to our fleshly mind, it is more blessed to give than receive!
CHRIST CARES seeks to address a unique and unusual need: THERE IS A MYRIAD OF CHRISTIANS THAT WANT TO VOLUNTEER SOME WHERE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE, HOWEVER SINCE THE BODY OF CHRIST IS SO DIVIDED MANY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO OR WHERE TO GO. WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE AND EMPOWER YOU TO GET INVOLVED AND CONNECT YOU WITH MEANINGFUL AND PRACTICAL OPPORTUNITIES TO VOLUNTEER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Christ Cares is a Christian Organization that promotes reconciliation and collaboration in the BODY OF CHRIST.
