Stories of Those We Reach, Equip, and Serve
The Family Shield Response Center staffed by volunteers, and employees follow-up with thousands of people each year. Many are unchurched or have questions about God and His Word. Some people call, some write, but more and more opportunities to share God's love open up because of Facebook and other social media sites. We are thankful for all of these opportunities and for those of you that support us and make our ministry possible!
Recently I received a message from a friend who we had worked with whose daughter was studying with Jehovah's Witnesses some years ago. She asked for prayer for her stepson and his fiancé. His fiancé is a Muslim. We prayed and I followed up with my friend. She felt guilty. I shared Romans 8:1 with her that says, "There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." I also shared several Family Shield programs about "Responding and Witnessing to Muslims." Additionally, I encouraged her to learn more about spiritual warfare since the Lord has put her in the middle of another spiritual battle. We also sent her several programs about spiritual warfare and a Bible study I've written on this topic.
This morning I responded to a man on Facebook who posted, "I'm not convinced there's a heaven." He recently had cancer and was asking why those who read his post believe in Heaven. Here is a portion of my first response to him...
God did everything necessary for everyone to receive forgiveness and eternal life. He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to earth, to suffer, and die for ALL our sins (John3:16). Then three days later He rose from the dead. All we need to do is believe in Jesus and what He did for us. He gives us His righteousness and He takes all our sins when we place our trust in Him. God's Word tells us eternal life is a free gift and is not dependent upon our good works (Eph. 2:8-9). Many other people also shared excellent words and we encouraged him to read God's Word and learn more about Jesus. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and the only way to the Father. One of the people who responded to him is one of our faithful supporters. It was wonderful to read her Christ-centered message to him.
