Simply Go, Simply...Living For Him

Front Porch Revivals

This Spring, as the weather warms up, the sun begins to shine, the flowers bloom, and new life bursts all around, let’s focus on helping others find their NEW LIFE in Christ!

The winter often keeps us shuts in, the cold and dark days leave us a bit lonely, and we can be a bit isolated. But with each new day moving towards warmer days, I am inspired with ways to build more relationships with others. It only takes a smile, a kind word, or a gesture to begin building a relationship. And when you know God’s love, you can’t help but to reflect that love to those around you!

This Spring, we want to encourage you to get outside and perhaps out of your comfort zone a bit, and invite people to your front porch! Don’t have a front porch? Then head over to a local park, strike up a conversation, be willing to let Jesus work through you.

We often think we need to have the courage to share or all the right answers. But the Holy Spirit works in us. We just need to be willing.

So as the warm weather moves in, get out. Sit on your porch. Wave at passersby. Offer a cup of tea even! You never know what a simple smile and, “Hello, how are you?” can lead to. Go to the park. Strike up a conversation. Offer to pray for someone. You just may be the someone they need after a long winter.

Today we are sharing a resource that will help you share Jesus in your everyday life.

Share Jesus Without Fear

From the description:

In recent years, the Share Jesus without Fear book and its growing family of ancillary products have sparked a faith-sharing movement that continues to gain momentum. It began with the jaw-dropping story of William Fay, once a money-driven businessman with Mafia ties who ran a house of prostitution until it was raided by police. Facing the threat of jail time, Fay turned to Jesus Christ for redemption and ever since has been turning others to Him as well. Share Jesus without Fear relays Fay’s passionate, effective instructions on how to share the love of Christ with anyone–without feeling intimidated on either side of the conversation. Bold and joyful, the outreach movement continues without fear.

I read this book a few months back and it was inspiring. I highly recommend it! Here at Simply Go! we are encouraging everyday women to be missional in their everyday lives, and Share Jesus Without Fear is a great resource to equip you to get started!

Simply Go, Simply...Living For Him

Our Words in the World

We just finished up a beautiful month of loving our neighbors. If you missed it, we have a free downloadable calendar from February that shared one idea each day for loving those around us. Yet, it doesn’t have to be February to do any of these ideas! You can grab the calendar at any time and use those ideas at any time.

As we begin to approach Spring, we have some ideas that we will move forward with for our Simply Go! initiative. We will share resources, new challenges, and encouraging blog articles about being missional in your everyday life. And that brings me to the topic I wanted to share today: our words.

Our words matter in the world. We are representing Christ in each moment of our lives. So how are you using your words today as an ambassador of Christ?

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29 NIV

In a world that is filled with negative words, derogatory words, divisive words, and hurtful words, we have an opportunity to show Jesus in our words.

What we don’t say matters

When we don’t join in with the rhetoric and we don’t share every negative news story or commentary, it actually speaks volumes. When our “agenda” isn’t to tear down the other side, but to simply share the good, it matters. When our words come from a place of love, it is impossible to speak ugly. We will be noticed for what we don’t say. There is enough of the negative to go around, let’s share the positive.

What we do say matters

When our words speak life, edify, and most importantly are spoken from a place of love, it will be noticed. Our words of love will stand out in a world that is filled with division. We are to ultimately want to show Jesus to others and we won’t do that with ugly words.

So remember today, your words matter. They are a reflection of your own walk with the Lord. Use them well. Shine His Light. And all for His glory.

Love Thy Neighbor Challenge Day 25

Simply Go! is a part of the Simply Living for Him ministry that focuses on missional living in the lives of everyday women. Based on Acts 4:13, which describes the disciples as ordinary men who had been changed by an extraordinary God, and those around them simply recognized that they had been with Jesus.

We want to encourage you that you can be missional right where you are–in your home, community, and everyday life. You simply need to reflect Jesus! So while Simply Living for Him provides resources to help you spend time with Jesus, Simply Go! is the next step in then shining that light!

Day 25

Today’s idea:

Tell someone about Jesus today. The greatest act of love is to share HIS love.

Tell someone about the greatest love there is. Jesus. Perhaps this is the day to have that conversation with a friend or loved one. Or, perhaps you want to be an “internet evangelist” for the day and share the Gospel on your social media. However you choose to share Jesus, let someone know today. You never know the ripple effect of telling just that one person.

Share your ideas! Tag me in your social media and let’s Simply Go! together!

Because when you understand God’s love, you can’t help but give God’s love!

This month we are challenging you to Simply Go! right where you are! Missions is for all of us. Jesus commanded us to go and make disciples. Yet, sometimes that feels a bit intimidating! What if I am rejected? What if I don’t know enough? What if I am uncomfortable?

We want to encourage you that building relationships with others in your everyday life is an important step to sharing the love of Jesus. And it doesn’t have to be intimidating. You simply need to show others His love and build relationships. If Christ is in your life, others will naturally see that!

So this month, we have put together a free downloadable calendar with ideas for each day to help you get started loving on your neighbor! Now, these are simple ideas that you can put into practice each day. You may want to do some of them or all of them, or they may inspire you with more ideas of your own. Use the calendar as a guide, but don’t feel you have to stick with each idea each day. It is simply a tool to help you get started.

We recognize that during this time some people are not able to get out or are not comfortable getting out these days. So we have included ways to reach out as you are comfortable! Some ideas can be done right from home!

If you are participating, you may also want to join us in our FREE online community to share ideas with other women and get ideas from others. You will also be encouraged in your own walk with Jesus, and find a place to grow. Our community is a thriving space of over 1,200 women pursuing Jesus together! JOIN THE COMMUNITY HERE!
