SATURDAY 10 DECEMBER, 2022
TOPIC: THE POWER OF GOOD WORKS AND EVANGELISM
SCRIPTURE: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Good works can raise dead persons or situations.
It has been confirmed that welfare or good works outreach is a tool for soul winning. This is a situation where you preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people by showing them acts kindness.
You touch the lost by showing them the Love of God in practical ways of meeting their needs.
Matthew 5:14-16 says,
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
When Dorcas died, widows and other people whom she had impacted brought evidences of her good works and showed them to Peter. Then Peter prayed and raised her from the dead (Acts 9:36-43). So, good works raised Dorcas from the dead. Good works can raise dead persons or situations.
When you show acts of kindness to the needy and less privileged, you are touching their lives. When you assist in meeting the need of someone in your neighbourhood, you are showing them the Love of Christ thereby creating a platform for their salvation.
You must know that your riches or resources are evangelical tools. The purpose of riches is outreach. You must make up your mind to live beyond yourself. Give generously to the needy; it would provoke the salvation of their souls.
Remember this: Good works can raise dead persons or situations.
1. Make up your mind to embark on strategic generosity to touch lives and destinies for the Kingdom.
2. Reach out to the poor and needy in your life.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for the privilege of touching lives through good works outreach. I ask for the grace to release what I have for the salvation of souls, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
