Dia dos Cravos Giveaway da mãe por Janie Sjogren

mothersdayAlgumas pessoas esquecem ou esperar até o último momento para conseguir mãe uma flor ou cartão. As flores podem ser caro quando comprado na loja individualmente, mas eles podem ser comprados por menos de cinqüenta centavos por flor em massa. Your group can probably explain to a local supermarket florist what you are trying to do with your outreach. Given enough advance notice, he or she can order a quantity of carnations and pass the discounted price on to you.

Attach to each flower an outreach connect card and a ribbon. As with a soft-drink or water giveaway, if your’e doing this at a grocery store (where we usually locate), situate yourself by the entrance, not the exit. You’ll want 5+ people per team.

Another version of this is the Secretaries Day or Sweetest Day flower giveaway with a blank card for the giver to write his or her sentients on as a greeting.

Of course, don’t give away flowers near a flower vendor.

Keep It Simple por Steve Sjogren

outreachMesmo que tenhamos uma dúzia de pontos aqui sobre começar vital alcance a idéia básica por trás da bondade Outreach é bastante simples.

Minha tendência é saltar para algo que eu acho interessante e para agitar as coisas, tanto quanto possível. Às vezes, agitando as coisas cria complexidade. A vida flui nessa direção. As others catch the vision of the new thing, before long, the idea can become fairly complicated.

Is there a way to keep things easier? Absolutely!

Outreach is all about one thing – seeing people come to relationship with Christ. The word “outreach” is a more general word than “evangelism.” The first is about the entire spectrum of things we can do that lead up to someone coming to Christ. The term Evangelism is a more concise term that relates strictly to seeing someone cross the line and come into a saving relationship with Jesus.

To keep all of this simple, we need to remember what we are about. We aren’t about 1,000 good things that might better peoples’ lives but don’t include seeing them come to know Christ. If the ultimate outcome isn’t to see them converted then we are losing track of what we are about. We are lost in complexity.

People who stay simple, who are focused like a laser, can be almost rude at times. They tend to be so focused they repel nice people who come with nice ideas about nice things that will bless people. There’s nothing wrong with any of that. There are plenty of places for that in fact. In the area of outreach, however, we must walk out the balance of smiling and at the same time walk in gritty determination to do whatever it takes to venture on.

3 Grandes projetos sociais para a Primavera de Janie Sjogren

Primavera está aqui e esta época é uma grande oportunidade para chegar a sua comunidade e mostrar-lhes o amor de Deus de forma prática.

Aqui estão três grandes projetos de extensão que são perfeitos para a primavera:

1. Free Car Wash

This is an effective, serviço prático. Nós oferecemos uma lavagem de carro toda semana no verão. Have a professionally made banner or sign that says “Totally Free Car Wash!” ou “Free – No Kidding – Lava-jato!” Have a few people who are not shy, cheerfully yell at cars driving by – “Free Car Wash!” Former cheerleaders are great for this role! This outreach needs a good project manager to organize volunteers, car flow and ensure a quality job.

Purchase high quality car wash soap and do a thorough job – scrub the tires and dry the car. Your hard work will speak volumes about God’s love!


  • Connection Cards
  • Free Car Wash Signs
  • Hoses and nozzles
  • Water Source (important!)
  • Buckets
  • Car Wash Soap
  • Squeegee
  • Tire brushes
  • Towels/Chamois Cloth

Team Size: 8+

Outreach Cost: Inexpensive

Child-friendly: Sim, it’s great fun for kids, but they must be well supervised


2. General Yard Cleanup

After the winter weather is over, all sorts of debris become obvious. Go door to door with gloves, rakes, and trash bags.


Team Size: 2+

Outreach Cost: Free / inexpensive

Child-friendly: No


3. Bottled Water Giveaway

Many people prefer water to soft drinks. Ice down bottles of water in Igloo coolers for an alternative to Coke giveaways. Use the same drink connection cards. We don’t recommend combining this with a soda giveaway because it offers too many options and gets complicated. You can do this anywhere there are a lot of people gathered.


Team Size: 3+

Outreach Cost: Moderate

Child-friendly: No


Não se esqueça de dar os cartões de divulgação de conexão durante os alcances da primavera. Se você precisar de cartões de alta qualidade de divulgação, você pode clicar em qualquer dos links acima para ver o grande seleção de projetos que nós oferecemos, ou simplesmente ir a este link abaixo:


Keep walking in the outflow!

Excelente Mistake - Fazendo Outreach Sozinho por Steve Sjogren

mistake(From time to time in Serve I am going to post Excellent Mistakes I have made in outreach over the years. These are “excellent” mistakes because I have learned from them and our typical step of progression is “Two steps forward, one step backward.” Thus, we are making progress in dropping the ball!) Of course we are able to do outreach on our own. We ought to be willing to do significant acts of outreach apart from our need for a team. There is plenty we can do that is accomplished just by ourselves. However in the long run that policy is going to lead to burnout. We will quit if we seek to be a one-person outreach team. We just aren’t wired to do this stuff apart from connecting with others who are similarly wired to us, with both our weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

Fire left alone has a tendency to go out rather quickly. This is just as true in the spiritual world as it is in a physical realm. We need others who are going the same direction as us in outreach. It is vital that we team up with others who have a similar heart. You can’t go it alone in outreach. You need at least a couple of others to team up with you in order to do this for the long haul. The question is How can we move forward to make it for the distance? How can we proceed in a way that is going to endure? Sprinting down the path for a short bit is simple enough. Many can do that. To make it for a marathon distance takes some careful strategy. Jesus calls us to give our entire lives to his cause, for the rest of our lives. This is a matter of the lordship of Jesus.

Rezar. Ask God to supply a sidekick or two. Jesus said, “The fields are white unto harvest. …Pray the Lord of the Harvest to send out workers.” The beginning point is simply to ask God to show up. Jesus also said, “Wherever two or more are gathered in my name there am I in their midst.” There is something unfathomably powerful about having our focus on the Lord Jesus. He delights in showing up in our midst when we aim at lifting him up. “If you agree on anything…I will do it.” Amazing power is unleashed when we pray.

Look. Don’t forget to look for the supply of God. He might be in your midst right now doing something great even as you complain and are depressed. A key to progress is having the wherewithal to notice the move of God in both the obvious and the obscure. Pray for truth-tellers to come alongside you to speak words of obviousness to you. Sometimes childlike people will come as a gift to you with the ability to speak plain truth to you. Receive such people with enthusiasm. Take their words to heart.

Start. In the film Forest Gump, Forest begins to jog full-time for reasons not even he understands. He just feels it is important to go for a run, a long run! He runs across the entire United States. When he arrives at one coast he decides to run back the opposite direction again. He doesn’t stop this routine for several years. Forest runs alone for a while, but people start to hear about his run and believe there is something innately spiritual about his trek and slowly other joggers join him. Before long a cadre of fellow runners surround him wherever he runs.
Outreach (and much of leadership!) follows this pattern. Momentum begets momentum. We may not fully understand what we are doing. That’s just fine. Don’t wait until that ethereal point happens. It never will! Just start. Momentum is what life is all about. Without momentum you are either dead or quickly on your way to being dead. Progress happens as you proceed in a willingness to take a stab at the future. Ready, FIRE, Aim.

That’s your mantra from now forward.We need one another in order to do outreach for the long haul. God is going to provide our coworkers. Look for them, but thank him in advance for the amazing team he is sending.

Wrestling With Murphy Em Outreach Por Jon Allis

Eu tive o prazer de conhecer Steve Sjogren em uma conferência patrocinada ele no Kings Island Inn em 1989. Eu deveria saber que algo estava acontecendo quando eu perdi um dos meus 2 dentes da frente configurar o equipamento de som (uma história para outra altura, but feel free to insert your favorite hillbilly joke here. That began a decade’s long friendship. The coffee we shared spurred great conversations and stories from Steve. His passion helped me both recognize where God had already been developing a servant’s heart in me and inspired me to begin intentionally leading others to love those around us. Here is one of the lessons I have learned that keeps me in the game 25 years later.

This was something I first heard from Steve, but it has played out in one way or another in every project I have participated in. “When you move into servant evangelism you will bump into Murphy’s Law…no, you will move into Murphy’s country!"

It seems that loving your neighbor as yourself is actually difficult – that all that can go wrong tends to go wrong. It’s weird – it didn’t seem so hard when Jesus talked about loving our neighbors.

I actually thought I was getting off easy! Every time we choose to trust Jesus and operate in the gift of the Spirit, LOVE (yes singular, because absolutely every follower of Jesus gets this one!) the Enemy is right there to make sure we don’t like it. If we did like it, we might recognize God’s power is revealed in love, and we might start to share it like it made a difference and actually change the world. To prevent this, our enemy makes sure that Murphy’s Law is powerfully at work through various circumstances, ordinances, personalities and attitudes from the get go so we are frustrated from the get go.

Murphy showed up at the very first outreach I did with Steve at the Cincinnati Vineyard. They were hosting a free carwash (that actually was free—back in the day when that was novel) at Jenny’s Sports Bar on Route 42. I jumped in with both feet and started working hard. I got hot enough that spring day to shed my t-shirt (not nearly as terrifying an image 25 anos atrás) as I pressed into washing fenders, hoods and bumpers. As we began to clean up I started looking for my white t-shirt, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I finally wandered over to the rag pile and there it was. Someone had used it to polish brake dust from at least a dozen rims. I wrung it out and considered this reward for my labor. Later though 2 stories circulated that made me realize that I would gladly give my shirt every time we served to see God’s love revealed like that.

That experience helped me realize that to deal with Mr. Murphy and not give up we must be both hard and soft. We must be hard to keep serving for the long haul. Hard to the outreach realities of circumstances, ordinances, personalities and attitudes that Murphy employs. Dealing with Murphy requires that we develop a callous over the part of our heart that wants to be right, wants to be in control, wants to look good and most of all be successful. The bad news is that callous is developed the way all good callouses are – through repeatedly being pressed down, pushed on, rubbed and scraped. In a deep sense we need to become hard to the awkward feelings of being foolish, unappreciated and embarrassed. I believe this sacrifice is a pleasing fragrance to our God. If we can grow hard, develop this ability to embrace Murphy, we can enjoy a long season of loving our community into relationship with Jesus.

We must also stay soft. Soft to the voices of those we are serving and those we are serving with. The breath of fresh air for me in this discipline of reaching out in service is the stories that capture a moment in the transformation process. Make time to listen every time you are serving. Whether it is a debrief over food after an event with your co-laborers or stopping your “kindness” to listen to one of the people you are working so hard to reach. Their stories are the catalog of the Holy Spirit’s work in and through you, in a tangible way, the very coming of His kingdom. Don’t be distracted by your work and miss this sweet fruit. As these stories are shared, they create energy for us to continue to reach out.

Love Strong.

4 Idéias tempo quente Outreach por Janie Sjogren

Está ficando mais quente e isso muda o que podemos fazer para mostrar o amor às nossas comunidades. Dê uma olhada no seu armário de abastecimento, e fazer alguma primavera-limpeza para refrescar-se tudo. Os kits de limpeza de sanitários típicos e de pára-brisa suprimentos de lavagem são um começo, mas adicionar faísca um pouco mais aos seus alcances com uma boa variedade de opções no pronto. Aqui estão quatro idéias de extensão para um clima mais quente.

Coloque uma torção no Car Wash típica - Fazer-lhe um $1 Lava-jato

Obter grandes cartazes que diziam, "Wash-No Free Car Kidding!"Ou" $ 1 Car Wash!” In the $1 Versão Car Wash, você dá a pessoa $1 depois de lavar seu carro, com um cartão de conexão explicando por que você está fazendo isso, "Esta é uma maneira simples de dizer que Deus ama você, sem amarras!"

Instituído em uma rua que tem o fluxo de tráfego significativo, com acesso à água e uma entrada e saída fácil. Use soccer cones to direct traffic where you want it. Create an inviting sitting area with soccer chairs and iced down drinks in a cooler.

Coloque vários de alta energia, cheerleader types on corners near your site. Tell them to shake their signs, acenar as mãos e as pessoas geralmente diretos para a lavagem de carro.

Certifique-se de ter pessoas amigas para cumprimentar os motoristas, and to talk to people. Don’t get so busy washing that you forget to pass out a card and an explanation that you are doing this as a community service project to show them a little of God’s love.

Put Your Coolers Para Trabalhar!

Rolling coolers are great for water and pop outreaches. If your church can afford one, get a large Ice Maker to always have ice at the ready. Coolers also work well to transport hot dogs and hamburgers wrapped in fast-food foil wrappers. The cooler acts like a steamer, and the goods arrive warm. Offer with individually wrapped condiments, e entregar cerca de 11:00, enquanto as pessoas ainda estão com fome.

Cupom Ice Cream Dê-Away

Sorvete é um alimento feliz! Buy a quantity of ice cream coupons at a discount. Connect with your local ice cream shop, or with McDonald’s or Chick-Fil-A. Explain that you are doing, um projeto de serviço comunitário, e que você planeja que os cupons de sorvete de distância.

Lugares para ir incluem campi, parques, bairros, eventos esportivos, and skate parks. Give out a Connection Card with each Ice Cream Coupon.

Sobrevivência Packs Festival

Onde comida e bebida estão sendo vendidos como parte de um evento da comunidade, don’t be rude and give away drinks or food. Em vez, compõem os pacotes pequenos de itens em um saco zip-lock pequena.

Itens poderiam incluir: Towelettes for cleaning sticky fingers, pequenas amostras de creme, loção ou bronzeado, um doce de hortelã para refrescar a respiração difícil, tecidos, lápis de golfe e pequenas almofadas de post-its ou almofadas feitas de clean-cut papel de rascunho.

4 Lições Bondade Outreach Ensina Você…Mas seminário não por Samuel Aldridge

Como um estudante MDiv tempo inteiro eu gasto muito do meu tempo escondida atrás do meu laptop e uma pilha de livros e artigos de periódicos. Eu debater e defender a teologia com outros alunos, lutar com grego e hebraico, e receber instrução sobre temas de administração da igreja por meio de técnicas de comunicação eficaz; I even have classes specifically devoted to my spiritual formation. But even with such a holistic theological education I have found there are many things that just cannot be learnt about the Christian life from the seminary classroom, or the church sanctuary. Some of these lessons are assumed, and others are overlooked, whilst with some the theory is mentioned, but the lesson never truly learnt or understood. To learn these lessons we have to go somewhere else.

For me that somewhere else has become the streets of my local town doing Kindness Outreaches. I have to admit that this was never something I started off doing with the aim of educating myself, it was all about the people I was serving, and it still is, but no matter how much I think I know, I always seem to learn something new every time I go out onto the streets to serve. So without much more ado, here are some things that Servant Evangelism has taught me…and seminary hasn’t.

1. People long to be loved

I have lost count now of the number of people that I have gone up to during Kindness Outreaches and the response has been either dumbstruck faces or tears. Smiles are certainly the most common response I have had though. One time I was out doing a Kindness Outreach with my wife, giving away popcorn to people at work. She wandered into one of the businesses and on this occasion I hung around just outside the store looking through the glass store front (I think that this was only my second time doing Kindness Outreach and I was still terrified back then). As my wife walked out of the store, having given away the popcorn, the single employee, who had been sat looking very bored and lonely in an empty shop, had a huge smile across her face. I think that we had just made her day.

This may seem like something that should be so fundamentally understood by Christians: that our love is not just needed, but also wanted. All too often, though, I think that we assume this is so fundamental to how the Christian should think that we overlook it. During my time at seminary I have been a part of several discussions that have looked at church growth, development and issues surrounding the supposed “consumer congregation,” but within these talks it seems that the idea of a church growing by actively going out and loving its local community is often overlooked, apparently we just don’t seem to think that love is what the “consumer congregation” wants. But Kindness Outreach has taught me that love is exactly what people want.

2. Community is alive and well

Once, back in October, a few of us took a truck filled with pumpkins around some of the apartment blocks in my town. We pulled up to the first block of apartments and started talking to a group of teens stood in the parking lot, they we’re eager to take some pumpkins. Then a remarkable thing happened: children started pouring out of the woodwork from all over the estate and formed quite a crowd around the truck as we handed out the pumpkins. Within a few moments the truck went from bursting full to half empty. We had managed to serve an entire complex and knocked on a total of one door. Instead the community had done the work for us, the children had been running from apartment to apartment, telling all their friends and family about the people giving away free pumpkins, and as more people found out they in turn told more people until the whole complex was aware of our presence.

I see this sort of community spirit a lot whilst I am out serving the community, perhaps most often when I am around giving out bags of food to those who need it. As I start talking to people I often ask if they know anyone else who is in need of some free food, and whilst sometimes the person shrugs their shoulders, more often than not the person steps out of the doorway and starts pointing to other houses in the street.

3. We are part of a single catholic church

When I was out serving with free bags of food the other day something happened that I did not expect. I was in a rundown trailer park and knocked on the door of one of the trailers, holding my breath that the fragile construction would not collapse as I knocked. A little old lady answered the door, her arms filled with food. She had seen what we were doing and wanted to be a part of it and so stuffed a ton more food into the bags that we were carrying. This little, old lady was not part of our church, or even our denomination, but as we explained to her what we were doing she was still excited to help out. In that moment our slightly different takes on theology were irrelevant, for the both of us our theology did not need to go any further than “We love because God first loved us.”

People from all sorts of backgrounds and denominations go out to do Servant Evangelism: Methodists, Baptists, Lutherans, Pentecostals, and many others. We have all at times debated and fought over our theologies, and being at a multi-denominational seminary I sometimes find myself focusing more upon how we differ than how we are alike. But when I am on that doorstep doing Kindness Outreach, I wouldn’t bat an eyelid if my companion for the day was from a different denomination, for at that moment we need to go no further than “We love because God first loved us.” And surely we, as the church, can at least agree on that much.

4. And finally…

Perhaps the most important lesson that I have learnt from doing Kindness Outreach, however, is one that arises out of all my outreach experiences. It arises out of the fact that people need to be loved, it arises out of the fact that community is still important, it arises out of the church being able to stand as a unified whole, and it arises from every door that I have stepped up to and God has used me to make a positive difference in somebody’s life: that there is hope for the church today. Kindness Outreach has shown me that there is a way for us to effectively shine Christ’s light to the world and, that through us Christ can impact the lives of countless people. All that needs to be done is for us to get out there and serve.

Quando Evangelismo Servo se torna uma rotina por Marty Boller

outreachEu não tenho certeza quando o termo "servo evangelismo" ficou em primeiro lugar em jogo. Nos primeiros dias do movimento Vineyard, Steve Sjogren foi a primeira voz que ouvi falar de focar uma comunidade da igreja toda em torno da idéia de servir de fora através de práticas, leis aplicáveis ​​de bondade. Minha igreja Vineyard em Cedar Rapids, Iowa tem estado ativamente envolvido com evangelismo servo para o bem dos nossos 13 anos de nossa existência. Em 1998, quando começamos a nossa igreja, era comum para a nossa equipe de plantação pequena igreja de estar envolvido em eventos SE quase todo fim de semana.

Fizemos lavagens de carro grátis, brindes grátis da garrafa de água, livre bairro de folha raking, cravos gratuitos para as mães no Dia das Mães, pá de neve livre, etc. etc. Era comum naquela época que, quando uma nova pessoa, começaram a vir à nossa igreja, nós sabíamos que eles estavam hospedados quando vimos eles no nosso próximo sorteio! E enquanto eu não posso negar que fizemos esses eventos evangelísticos servo em nossos primeiros dias, porque nós estávamos tentando plantar uma nova igreja, com o tempo eu acredito que alguns de nós realmente pegou o bug SE e decidiu que era uma boa coisa a fazer, mesmo quando não era tudo sobre a construção de uma nova igreja. Na verdade,, como eu vejo, evangelismo servo nunca deve ser sobre a plantação ou a construção de uma igreja, mas sobre as pessoas simplesmente amorosos não sabemos. E como Steve Sjogren tantas vezes nos ensinou ao longo dos anos, as palavras não podem expressar o quão emocionante é dar algo sem amarras.

Mas não é interessante que ao longo do tempo, nós, os cristãos podem ter algo que está em seu "núcleo algo novo e fresco e torná-lo em uma rotina, ou pior ainda, um projeto de igreja? E assim torna-se, com muitas igrejas, como nós crescemos e entrar em instalações do nosso próprio. Quando olho para trás, Eu vejo como a minha igreja deixou de ter um "livremente recebeu-livremente dado por" atitude sobre evangelismo servo de um modo de programação que pode fazer SE tudo sobre o crescimento de nossa igreja e para medir resultados. Infelizmente, à medida que crescem, o conceito de atos aleatórios de bondade tendem a evoluir para altamente desenvolvido, programas de bem-planeada de fora de evangelismo servo. E de alguma forma, de alguma maneira, a verdadeira alegria de fazê-SE pelas razões certas é quase perdido.

Hoje, enquanto eu escrevo estas palavras, Estou orando sobre o que poderia ter em nossa igreja bem estabelecida para voltar mais uma vez para o despreocupado, light-hearted brindes espontâneas SE que apreciou uma vez quando éramos menores. Eu estou supondo que poderia haver outros pastores lá fora, que compartilham o mesmo sonho. Nas últimas semanas, Eu estive blogando sobre que tipo de mudanças pode precisar acontecer na minha treze anos de idade, igreja, a fim de voltar para as alegrias de fazer simples Unido ministério de evangelismo só porque Jesus ama-lo dessa maneira. Junte-me no meu blog e dialogar sobre algumas de suas idéias, bem. Juntamente com a ajuda de Deus, Acredito que só poderia ver uma nova onda de SE, por amor do seu nome!

Escutar a Deus ... Realmente? por Jason Taylor

Parecia que eu tinha tentado de tudo! De soltando milhares de ovos de um helicóptero para enviar o que parecia ser milhões de cartões postais, mas nossa igreja não estava recebendo os "resultados" que todo mundo tinha ficado. Eu contratei treinadores e mentores que me disseram "como" para plantar a igreja. Eu fiz tudo pelo livro, mas os resultados foram mínimos em comparação com o que todo mundo estava "ficando". Havia algo de errado comigo? Eu estava realmente chamado? Isso é realmente o que Deus queria que eu fizesse, começar uma igreja do zero?

Ainda me lembro do dia em que eu só vim a perceber que eu precisava parar de ouvir treinadores, livros, e blogs em primeiro lugar e começar a ouvir o que Deus estava dizendo através do Espírito Santo para a nossa igreja em nossa cidade. Foi quando tudo mudou! Eu me lembro de orar e pedir a Deus, "Qual é o próximo?"Como eu parei e ouvi, Ele falou e começou a se tornar o que Deus queria que fôssemos como uma igreja em nossa cidade.

Por exemplo, Deus disse ...

  • Mova a sua localização 9 quilômetros pela cidade para outra escola, quando você não tem o dinheiro para fazê-lo- fizemos, e começamos a crescer e Deus proveu!
  • Estabeleça uma meta para tocar 5,000 pessoas com atos aleatórios de bondade em seis meses, quando tivemos nenhum dólar para este alcance- fizemos, e as vidas das pessoas foram alterados para sempre e Deus proveu!
  • Mova-se novamente para outro local que você não pode pagar- fizemos, e Deus providenciou e desde então mais de 260 pessoas deram suas vidas para Jesus em nossos serviços!

Meu ponto é este: Não há nada de errado com coaching, mentores, e blogs, mas por favor OUVIR Deus em primeiro lugar, e Deus vai usar as outras vozes para implementar a visão que Ele lhe dá.

5 Lançamento Lições de Johnny Appleseed por Steve Sjogren

John Chapman, conhecido como o lendário "Johnny Appleseed" era um missionário que estendeu a mão para os nativos americanos no Vale de Ohio no início de 1800.

Ele tinha Ferramentas simples

Sua ferramenta principal era plantar uma vara! Você tem um pedaço de pau? Quando sua vara atual desgastou ele encontrou um novo carregador. Ouvi recentemente através da videira que gruda ainda são fáceis de encontrar!

O mais elaborado fazemos nossos planos o mais provável é que vamos falhar.

Ele ouviu o convite

Ele pegou a convite do Pai para cumprir a sua missão de vida, portanto, quando as coisas ficaram difíceis, ele foi capaz de voltar ao começo de tudo quando Deus falou com ele inequivocamente para sair em primeiro lugar.

Ele não falou sobre Outreach, Fê Outreach

Johnny entendido é sobre ativismo, não meras palavras, nem estudo preparação contínua, nem o acumular de notebooks mais legais da conferência. Ele era tudo sobre a tomada de riscos e ficar lá fora. Se ele estivesse vivo em 2012 seu lema seria, "Schmissional Missional! Pare a conversa incessante, deixar de ser uma galinha e fazê-lo apenas pelo amor de Deus!"

Fê Pequenas Coisas

Não é preciso muito para mudar o mundo. Uma pequena semente de maçã cresce na maior árvore frutífera no mundo das plantas que irão suportar milhares de maçãs.

Ele foi fiel

Ele estava todo de! Ele queimou suas pontes. Não houve retorno.

Ele viu o potencial no Reino Fé

Alguns acham difícil, se não impossível, para fazer o ministério de Johnny, porque era a longo prazo e não imediatamente cumprindo. Ele foi chamado por Deus para fazer algo grande, mas algo que não iria suportar totalmente fruto em sua vida.

Cada semente estava destinada a produzir uma árvore surpreendente que produzem milhares de maçãs para a glória de Deus. Leva o tipo de fé só Deus pode fornecer a viver a partir dessa perspectiva. Não podemos trabalhar que até. "Deus nos capacitar a capacidade de ouvir o seu chamado, independentemente da altura ".

Com ministério evangelismo servo do fruto leva um tempo para acontecer, mas garantido, mas quando uma igreja permanece fiel para servir fortemente e mostrar generosidade para com a sua comunidade circundante, resultados surpreendentes virá.

Qualquer um pode contar o número de sementes em uma maçã,
Mas só Deus pode contar o número de maçãs em uma semente.
