Wednesday Receptivity Some people will hear you and some won’t. Every conversation you have about Jesus will not end in salvation. You’re not responsible for that though. It’s not on you to convince, convict or convert. It’s simply your responsibility to be diligent in sharing your faith actively.   You go where God tells you and let him handle the details.

Tuesday Community   One of our greatest tools for witnessing when it comes to sharing our faith with the world around us is our community. The church community, living, loving, and sharing the way Jesus called us to is an amazing thing.

Intentional in generosity.   Are you intentional about being generous? Do you plan for it? Do you make space in your budget to give to others?

Generous with strangers   How are you in the car? It says a great deal about your temperament toward people. Do you cut them off, blast your horn, scream and yell? Or are you gracious?   How do you treat your waiter or waitress? Are you kind, forgiving, and pleasant? Or do you treat them like the help? Is it “their job” so it doesn’t matter how much of a mess…

Generosity is important. Generosity is about more than giving a tithe, but it’s ultimately about having a heart like Jesus. Jesus was the ultimate giver. He gave us life. He gave us hope. He gave us a promise. He gave his life keeping that promise. He gives us grace every day. Every blessing we have is because He decides to be generous with us. So this week we’re…
