Refueling your fire for the spread of the Gospel

International (MNN) — Have you ever wanted to make an eternal difference in the lives of people around you? Have you ever wished you could make more of the 150,000 people that die every day aware of the possibilities before them?

Ron Hutchcraft Ministries has created a 13-week video series made specifically for a group of believers to reignite their passion to share Christ in their day-to-day life.

"This isn't even about going somewhere that you don't already go," says Ron Hutchcraft. "It is about taking your everyday activities and using those as a means to communicate Christ to people in your world. That's why you are where you are."

Hutchcraft explains that every Christian has been divinely positioned by God to reach the people around them. It would seem that the place you live and the people you interact with are not mere accidents.

"Every Christian has been biographically credentialed by God. Your whole biography, everything that's ever happened to you in your life, has given you a story through which you can communicate the great love of Jesus Christ to people."

The program takes you through three main aspects to get you excited about sharing your faith.

"We talk about three stories. There is ‘their story.' That is the story of that lost neighbor of yours–that lost coworker or fellow student or teammate. They have a story, and you care about them; you listen to their story; you find out about their life. Then there's ‘your story.' After you've listened to their story, you tell them your hope story. (Every person who knows Christ has a hope story of the difference Jesus is making in their life.) And then you tell ‘His story.' ‘His story' is the one that changed your story from a hopeless story to a hope story. And what He did on the cross is what gave you a hope story. Those three stories can literally change the eternal address of someone you know and care about."

The program's success has been phenomenal so far. The mindset of Christians is changing, exciting them to be an agent for the Gospel wherever they go. Some have even gone through the series with their families, using the time to grow together in the strength of the Gospel message and their motivation to reach out.

"[The series] turns everyday believers who never thought they could speak up about what Jesus has done for them into confident rescuers. That's the answer to 150,000 people a day going into eternity: God's people saying ‘it's up to me.'"

You do not have to be a missionary in a foreign country to be a life rescuer. If you have ever been certain that you were "made for more," click here and try this series today. Make a difference for the Kingdom.
