“What Can We Do To Make A Difference?”

“What can I do to make a difference?”

Sometimes, that question is asked as if there is nothing we can do, but we can make a difference.

Here are some ways you can make a difference.

First, spend time asking God for His blessings over your family, our state, and our country.

Pray for the people around you. What would life be like if no one ever prayed for you? Can you imagine what you would be going through today if no one had cared for your soul? We need to pray for lives to be changed and for our family, friends, and co-workers to be saved.

Second, seek real opportunities to care for the people around you. Show them the love of Christ. Meet their needs with compassion. When hard times come, show up with love and help.

Third, share the good news of Christ. Nothing is as important for eternity as knowing Christ, and nothing is as important for today. All around us are people who have never really heard the gospel. They don’t know that God will forgive them and make them new creatures. They don’t know that repentance and faith will change them forever.

The Georgia Barnette Offering encompasses each of these three ways of making a difference. This offering is used to plant churches, meet the physical needs of people, and share the gospel. When we give for this offering we make a concerted effort to help those people who are right here in our state.

In your packet of offering envelopes, you received an envelope for the Georgia Barnette Offering. You can place your offering in this special envelope or you can make this special offering  using your normal offering envelope.

Let us make a difference by giving and doing our best for God.
