New Ministry

I am excited b/c our church is hosting a new ministry we are going to learn about.  It's going to teach us to be more comfortable in our faith and help us learn to share the gospel with knowledge and confidence. 

How many people out there aren't 100% comfortable with sharing their faith?  **raising my hand!**  I mean, it's easy with some people, but then there are those that I don't feel prepared enough to share with.  Well, this class is gonna help just that.  I am excited b/c all I truly need is my left hand.  Left hand you might be asking?  Let me explain.....
You might still be a bit confused.  See, what I learned tonight is-
Grace= Free gift, it's not earned or deserved
Man= Sinner, can not save himself
God= Merciful and just b/c he has to punish us for our sins
Christ= Both God & man, He died on the cross, rose from the dead, paid the penalty for our sins, purchased us a home in Heaven. 
Faith- not head knowledge or temporary faith, but true trust in Christ Jesus alone.

See, basically that is the steps of sharing the gospel right?  Of course there is a lot more, so I have only touched the tip of the lesson.  But, I can say that I am so excited to start this ministry!  I can't wait to continue blogging about it. 

See, at the beginning of the lesson, he asked us to write down at least ONE person we want to see saved.  He also challenged us to share this with someone this week. I figured blogging about it, I can share it with more than one person in the virtual world, but I can also share it with someone else! 

Let me know what you think!
