Daniel 11,12; 1 Timothy 1

Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners–of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. ~ 1 Timothy 1:15-16

Our Mission:                Be a living testimony to the Truths of Christ

The Battlefield:            At Home & Abroad

Hardest Battlefield:     Family

It breaks my heart to see my relatives—even those who are born-again—walk around bound-up, not free.  So instead of talking to them, I’ve decided to live it and pray for them.  My prayer is that Christian men and women would come alongside them and love on them and that the Holy Spirit would enlighten them to the Truth and they would be free.

It just so happened that God had revealed a new Truth to me last week and I began praying this Truth over my life and God moved very rapidly in my life—both to my own amazement, as well as the amazement of my co-workers.  The other day, I was talking with one of my relatives and was telling her all about it and about the many blessings that had resulted.  And then it happened: God answered another prayer.  She asked me if I would send her more information on the Truth that had been revealed to me.  Praise God that she is hungry enough for the Truth, and thank you God, that for using my life as a testimony to share this Truth with her.

Lord, I pray that you would continue to use my life as a living testimony, to shine your light in this dark world.  In Jesus Name I pray, Amen.

  1. Mysterious. PTL. I hope you reveal more on your blog.

    Reggie, what does “PTL” mean? With trying to keep my blog to 300 words, I was limited in what I could say…and with not wanting to “call-out” my family members, I chose also to be discreet in how I presented some of the material.

  3. PTL – Praise the Lord! At least that is the old meaning of those letters. Is that right, Reggie? Your testimony was so encouraging, Heather, especially around the holidays when we will most likely be seeing family (and lots of them) by the end of the year. I use to get so tense gearing up to either present the gospel or defend it around my relatives. I’ve learned that doing what you described, that is living our testimony, is much better received than preaching it. Many of my family members have come to Christ (not directly as a result of anything I said or did), but as a testimony to the mercy of Christ Jesus. I love the Biblical concept that God’s arm is not to short to save. In other words, He is working to bring all those I love into His kingdom; in fact, He loves them even more than I do (and even when I’m being a horse’s patoot around them)!
