How to illuminate your world with the Gospel
March 22, 2013
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
1 Peter 2:9
I had a man come up to me one day and tell me, “Pastor Graham, I’m being called to go into ministry. I’ve worked in the secular world for ten years, and the way people act and live is just so vile. If I could just work at a church, I wouldn’t be so tempted to indulge in that kind of lifestyle.”
So I told him to pray about it, because contrary to popular belief, we at the church don’t just hover through the halls with our halos on! Yes, I probably work in a less “worldly” atmosphere, but while the challenges at my job may be different, they are challenges nonetheless.
It’s so important to have Christians in every sphere of life. We need poor Christians as much as we need rich Christians. We need Christian lawyers, CEOs, managers, and manual laborers. And very often, that means believers are called to live and work in tough environments where the temptation to sin is more present. But in those situations, God gives strength to live for Him.
The reason God has you where He has you is so you will shine for Him – that you might be a light to your world right where you are. So light your world with the Gospel of Christ and trust in God daily to give you the power to obey His commands!
SHINE GOD’S LIGHT INTO YOUR WORLD AND CLING TO GOD DAILY TO HELP YOU OBEY HIS COMMANDS!

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.
