Hi this is breathing welcome to the Salvation Army's words of life. Welcome back to words of life. This is our final episode of our series, the postcode of the church and in this episode the panel and I discussed where we go from here. We really have been so as to sit around this with these people that are really seeking God's will for their lives each and every day in the movies they serve, and I been encouraged by the conversation as aforesaid.
This is the last time to have the kind of dialogue but I hope that it doesn't stop for you and for us. We talked about technology talk about challenges and we talked about opportunities. Will we be able to serve whether we were in the four walls of our building or not, but I think there's a theme that keeps coming up and you pointed out.
I know I talked about being depressed during this time you got multiple texts or people talking about maybe being empty or feeling an emptiness.
We, the Salvation Army has had an incredible opportunity to serve through emotional and spiritual care line that you treated like our normal disaster deployment were people were assigned to this answer the phones come alongside people looking for hope and you have an opportunity to serve in that capacity I think you have a story that we could all benefit from my it was an amazing opportunity and I happily every day in Chicago that he was someone who was lovely and he didn't know really talk to Lisa Collis every single day and talk to us and he just cared and we have a lot because it was just people looking for help and it took me back to serve in the Myrtle Beach area for five years and I got home, little Christmas applications fermented and he said my community needs. The Salvation Army okay how can I help you to help my neighbors need help and who else better to call to bring hope to my people, Salvation Army, and throughout this link the helpline that we have an evening with the people, services at our core and everything people just looking for some help. They need a word of encouragement they need to know someone cares somebody something bigger than this. To make and so I finally gave that word help has been so important for me to remember doing were called to share the hope of Jesus Christ through the phone. You know that prayer opportunities have arisen through this. I am sure talking with people in our community that opportunity to share the hope and the love of Jesus Christ so but if you need someone to talk to grab a pen or pencil and write the summer down, it would be 1-844-458-4673. That's our whole line and you can call it anytime but write this down 1-844-458-4673. I have found hope in Jesus Christ and women as ministers of the gospel you have had some incredible opportunities to come alongside people and offer that hope I wonder if there is a story that anyone has particularly related to how you could follow up with someone that has come to know Jesus through the ministry give them what they read.
To be mindful of this is very vague and that the church is to continue to grow those obviously coming to know the Lord Jesus as their Savior call as well and when we think about Québec into the church when were saying you can come back in. But it has to be this way were limited to a handful of people will hiring a growing were really kind of limit is grow so were reaching these people and engaging people within our communities, and spiritual care and that we we also want to just leave it with them and send them off and say good luck.
But how would continue to follow up again. Her phone number again or text in your email figured out a way to engage and continue to meet with them when we don't always have the traditional formats of a church program in church worship service.
I think we decided creative way and be intentional word intentional about continuing that engagement not give up and bring them through.
Not only are selling the salvation process and helping him do that through the discipleship process will support that and share the word with them and help them figure spiritual journey and not just say the word of God with love. How can we really continue to engage in the discipleship process thinking people have something to do there more apt to stay engaged and lose you so that opportunity by getting her shoulders and get your members engaged. Yeah, I think sometimes we forget how important invitation is and I think if we just extend those imitations as officers to soldiers darkening will you come and help us we can join and flee also to the soldiers soldiers don't forget call me or invite me to your home because I think in the small likes the smaller 70 section 12 right and that's where you have that friction love family together but never forget the power of just the simplification goes back to Steve Carter's book okay to fail to be okay as long as we are taking that bold step in setting a come to Jesus but my mother means to be okay to get to know that's hard so it's hard for me accuracy is automated. Sometimes God just got a son by Dr. Jim, any thoughts related to what we talked about as we come to the end of our time together actually I was concerned. Paul there is mention of a life of the site is likely, but I just got a call from someone they have a conversation for longtime, they put this judgment is the act is that the whole so why is because they want us to be holy like we have gotten sometimes, but the church have full we think of reading these, only full, but sometimes we all so we have the power to be doing so is essential that the data is failing. While we do review what principle they sent rather than just gold just go ahead but we may want to delete while you do and make a life that no one is made. Discipleship. But any today is that one study something and then discipleship will change what she is SH I SH EEG sensor but we have to refocus my thoughts and that was because fans often gobble through this selection sheet will file the shepherdess thank you as a good word. This is so mind, I think we just out of all of this week. We think will be in the world and secular view is evil.
God can take this and I truly believe he is using this and what if my question is, what if God allowed this for very specific person purpose especially in the church. What if we been saying over were stuck in our building, they did not reach more people in the church is the client what he said when I try to help you do this, but I was so this out there so you can mobilize and I find if you think of it that way that this needs to be used in a positive sense to reach more people for Jesus Christ and up and not always working to defeat Satan which we do need to cite will but is more work keys try to throw this evil Odyssey work back to normal.
That can't be our mindset or mindset has to be that bad things had happened.
But God can use it for good.
Here's how to reach more people and bring more people into his kingdom. I hope that this time has been an encouragement to any of those of her this or are seeing this broadcast and we pray that God will be honored in the conversation, ask Any of the review decide where prayer with us and that if you don't know Jesus, or if you are looking to find a hope that is in Jesus.

I'm scared that you are using this program for a good thing though we cannot see all time and patient salvation. So Jesus really continue to use the hearts of people that would reach out to those were eventually in the prestigious church buildings open to what you have got to go find a file that people change our prayer for all should be formed to evade is mobile to be flexible to regulate our services and programs is when you're keeping the main thing the main thing that assured the gospel of Jesus prayer for all the prayer all this sparked a mobile mobile opportunity to share the gospel and someone will hear something that will be encouraged to question what is called share God all this time before things got love for all those that are regional in Christ Jesus for Salvation Army's mission doing the most good deeds helping people with material and spiritual needs to become a part of this mission every time you give to the Salvation Army visit Salvation Army USA.org to offer your support and love to hear from you.
