Book Of the Month for June 2021: Look Inside Connected to Christ: Witnessing in Everyday Life
Connected to Christ: Witnessing in Everyday Life
By Mark Wood
2021/Paperback / 112 Pages
Witnessing starts simply: with one person, broken by sin, speaking to another broken person. Together, they follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance to find the ultimate Healer: Christ. It doesn’t require your life being perfect, nor does it require a vast knowledge of Christianity. The Spirit will work through you to plant the seeds of Christ’s love in the person’s heart.
Rev. Dr. Mark A. Wood invites you and your church members to walk together and find a new definition of witnessing. Using a gardening metaphor of plowing, planting, watering, waiting, and harvesting, you can see how the seeds your congregation plants now, with the help of the Holy Spirit, can be harvested by future generations of Christians to bring those broken by sin to the Savior.
