How to make connections for Christ
June 3, 2013
To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some.
1 Corinthians 9:22
Awhile back, our church had a 5K run and invited people from the community to participate. Over a thousand showed up to run. The following Sunday, I had several people come up to me and ask, “Pastor, what was the purpose of that race?”
So I told them, “We had a host of people who are not members of the church, and many who weren’t Christians at all.” Before and after the race, we were able to share Christ. One of the participants had an opportunity to speak a testimony of faith. And all of those people were exposed to Christians and to the church. It was a great way to reach people for Christ!
Whatever it takes… whatever the methodology… and whatever the means, we need to be reaching out for Christ. There’s no reason Christians shouldn’t be connecting with our culture and reaching out in creative ways with the Gospel.
Think of creative ways you can invite others to experience Christ. Connect with your neighbors by inviting them over for a cookout. Meet other people at your kids’ schools or through social clubs. Don’t be reclusive, but make “Christ connections” that will impact eternity!
MAKE AN EFFORT TO CREATIVELY CONNECT WITH OTHERS WHO NEED TO HEAR THE GOSPEL!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
