We Can Do It!
Touching 5,000 people with the love of Christ may sound like a monumental task for a medium sized church like Grace Fellowship but it is far from impossible. Each 1 Reach 1 every month is really not that difficult. If you, yes you, will reach one person with the love of Christ every month and each person who attends Grace will do the same, we will accomplish our goal! Don't let that 5,000 number scar you, just do your part and if you can do a little more, all the better.
Visit this site every week to get ideas on how to do it. Here is one idea that is really easy. Send a card to someone who is struggling just to let them know you are praying for them. That will take 5 minutes and a stamp (sometimes old school is more personal). Oooh, I have another idea - if you have a neighbor who has a hard time mowing their lawn, do it for them.
One of my favorite ways to touch people with the love of Christ is simply prayer. Not long ago, I found out one of the guys where I work out had his cancer return. He is a young guy. He doesn't know I am a pastor, but I looked at him and said, "hey, I am going to be praying for you, is that okay?" He looked at me and said, yeah, I'm really into God (I don't yet know what he meant by that). Now I have followed up with him a couple of times and reminded him that I continue to pray for him. Now I am praying for more opportunities to have spiritual discussions as well as for him to be healed.
