Making reproducing disciples of Jesus Christ

Effective Personal Ministry 8/9/19

Dear River Reach Family,

But Peter sent them all out and knelt down and prayed, and turning to the body, he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter, she sat up. 41 And he gave her his hand and raised her up; and calling the saints and widows, he presented her alive.

Acts 9:40-41

In God’s providential wisdom, believers experience real problems. Some problems are small, others are large. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is sufficient to meet every need of every human being. Some people came into the early church with significant pre existing needs (Acts 9:32). Others within the church encountered significant problems even while faithfully serving the Lord (Acts 9:37). Problems are an opportunity to magnify the Lord’s glory! Often the Lord uses willing servants as the channel through which His grace may flow into the lives of people. No matter how significant or insignificant we might be in this world, our Lord still wants us to personally invest in the lives of others. Even the great Apostle Peter took time to personally minister God’s grace to individuals in desperate need.
