“But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” Acts 6:4 (KJV)

 "Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not.” 2 Corinthians 4:1 (KJV)

 I wrote about showing God’s love yesterday, and by being kind and showing compassion, we can open the door to share the Word of God. If we don’t show people that we genuinely care about their needs, they may not be receptive of the gospel. That is why I really admire missionaries who choose to live among the various peoples and do ordinary work. I know missionaries who are carpenters, nurses, English teachers, and cooks, among many other positions. They perform a service for the people and build relationships, and then, they share the gospel. But it does not have to be just missionaries who participate, it is the Christian’s ministry. As a Christian, I should be longing for others to come to know Christ; that is what I’m here for. Jesus said in His great commission: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matt. 28:19-20, KJV) I like the end of that chapter, Christ is always with us, and we are not alone in sharing His ministry. 2 Corinthians 4 is also a great chapter on this subject.

Congratulations to all who have made it to the half-way point of this A to Z challenge with me. 13 letters down, 13 more to go! We can do it!

It has been an interesting experience so far and I have enjoyed finding and visiting other blogs. If you are a fellow participant, thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment!


  1. Another great post! Love the thought that we don't have to go overseas to be missionaries; if we just go among the people in our lives, do ordinary work and build relationships, we will have opportunity aplenty to let His light shine! You're doing a great job with the Challenge! Keep it up!

  2. I do admire missionaries that go to all different countries to live among the people and spread the gospel. I don't feel called to go onto the mission field like that but certainly support those that do through prayers and other ways :) So true we can all minister no matter where we are at.


  3. Thank you for the words of encouragement Elaine and Betty!
