His dreams


Wow. Talk about inspiration to get out and tell people about Jesus! My friend Sammy showed this video at our church evangelism training class and it re-motivated me to my true purpose in life.

Something I learned while at AFCOE: Once you've learned the principles of evangelism, you can't just go back to your regular job and say that it was a great and awesome experience. You become accountable to use what you learned for the rest of your life. Your calling in life is soul winning. 

You might be a mechanic, a nurse, a designer, a student, a lawyer, a writer, a cashier, an IT, or any number of things, but that is only your way to earn money and survive. Your actual occupation is to be a soul winner.

Don't make the mistake of following your own dreams when God's are so much more grand than you could ever imagine. He has a special work for you to do, even if simply at home, and He will give you the courage and energy to do it. Be prepared for a life of ultimate adventure!

Lord, send me anywhere, only go with me.
Lay any burden on me, only sustain me.
Sever every tie, save the tie that binds me to Thy heart.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I'd seen a similar video, but this one mentioned the 203 people who committed at GYC 2004 (I was one of those 203 people)... It's sad that there wasn't more follow-through, but I think they were only counted those who launched with AFM thus far. I'm still planning to follow through by God's leading, though perhaps not with AFM.

    1. Wow, neat. :) I guess that number may only be partially accurate, then. But wherever (and with whomever) God leads you is just where He wants you to be! I look forward to seeing where He has you go. :)

  2. I LOVE that little video!!! I just got it in the mail from AFM a couple weeks ago, and watched it last Sabbath. I, too, was one of those 203 people... However, I do think it's unfortunate that they only count those who go through AFM as having fulfilled their commitment. =\

  3. Reminds me of Romans 10:14,

    How then shall they call on Him in Whom they have not believed;? and how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?"

    As the video points out, if 2 in 7 people truly were Christians then we wouldn't see such tragic levels of poverty and sin in the world. May God awaken His people to the reality of this world's need for Him!

    And in case you were wondering, I just came across your blog by doing a bit of blog-suring. I just added myself as a follower and I hope you'll check out my Christian devotional blog as well.

    Have a blessed day!
