WFW - Valentine's Neighborhood Evangelism

Here's the picture of all the elements (Valentine's tract, candy & crinkle paper) as well as the picture of our family's Valentine's Neighborhood Evangelism Gift bags.

Please feel free to share this idea with anyone and everyone you know that loves our Lord Jesus Christ and who deeply desires this to be said about them:

"Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus."
Acts 4:13
Some interesting facts about our life.
The average person dies at 70 years old.
20 years old2,600 weekends left
30 years old2,080 weekends left
40 years old1,560 weekends left
50 years old1,040 weekends left
60 years old520 weekends left
According to the U.S. Census Bureau,
150,000 people die every 24 hours.

According to this chart, and as of next month, I only have 1,560 weekends left. That's not a lot!

"So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom."
~ Psalm 90:12

This is something I pray for myself daily as I consider how I've already spent the days the Lord has given me (and I must say, it hasn't always been focused on Christ), and how I will spend the rest of my days.

Will I spend my weekends on what I want to do for my personal pleasures? Or will I spend them remembering the mercies of God poured out to me, and present my body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God by leaving my comfort (like Jesus left Heaven) and choosing to live as Christ: dying to flesh daily so that I might share His life with others.

I pray daily that the Lord will help me stop being so scared of what others think and what they might do to me. I felt so rejected and embarrassed the other day when I was at WalMart and the clerk refused the tract I gave him. But when I remembered Jesus, I prayed and asked Him to help me and He gave me strength to turn around, look at the person who was standing behind me in the check-out line and say, "Well, I sure don't you to miss out on a gift. Would you like this?" With a huge smile, she answered, "SURE! Wow, thank you!"

While the world is celebrating their love for one another, won't you join me this Valentine's Day in sharing the love of Christ with anyone and everyone the Holy Spirit brings to mind?

Gracious Lord God in Heaven, I ask you to go before us and prepare the way. Guide us Father God with Your word that lights our path so we may walk as Jesus did. Just like the pillar of cloud You put before the Israelites to lead them into the Promised Land, will You also go before us and prepare the hearts of those You send us to? Will You also Lord, then go behind us, like the pillar of fire, to protect our work from the enemy? Please Father, do not let our enemy snatch up the Good Seed You've given us to share, but bless it and let it take root in the hearts of all those whom You've called to salvation in the name of Jesus. Amen.
