Marketplace Ministry: A Personal Testimony

10 Sep

More than anything else, God demands our obedience!

Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. (Colossians 3:22-24)

At the end of 2005, I prepared a list of top goals for 2006 for six areas of my life. One of my top spiritual goals was to “ignite an epidemic of prayer evangelism in Culpeper that will rapidly spread around Virginia, America, and the world.”

When I began these daily devotionals on July 1, 2006, I asked about 25 of the staff I work with at Giles Memorial Hospital for permission to add them to my email list. All but 2 or 3 gladly accepted. Melissa Weiss, one of the operating room nurses, not only agreed to receive my devotionals, but she asked to add her husband, Mike Weiss, to my devotional list.

Mike has now become one of my greatest supporters and a true inspiration for me. He not only reads almost every devotional and clicks through many of the links, but he is inviting many of his law enforcement co-workers to subscribe too. He’s also inviting members of his church. Because of Mike’s enthusiasm and because Melissa invited me to speak at her church, the Holy Spirit recently led me to sow my life into The Church of God of Prophecy in Pearisburg VA by attending the worship services on Wednesday evenings.

Now Bill Brown, the pastor of that church, and Mike Weiss have caught the fever to start Pray Giles very soon. Our God is a god of multiplication, not addition.

Have you blessed your fellow co-workers and church members by sharing these devotionals?

Prayer Power
Heavenly Father, there is none like You. You are LORD God Almighty, the one true God, the great I AM. I praise You as the God of multiplication. Thank You for preparing the hearts of the people in Giles County Virginia to join together in unity from different churches and different work places to pray regularly for leaders in their community. Thank You for Mike and Melissa Weiss and their two children. Thank You for the way that whole family loves Jesus and ministers together. Thank You for Pastor Billl Brown and The Church of God of Prophecy. Bless them with uncommon favor for their obedience. Thank You Jesus. Amen.

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
