Yesterday at The Church of Divine Guidance, where I attend in Los Angeles, CA, Minister Brenda gave a powerful message on why "Jesus is the Reason for the Season". In her message she asked us what we were giving Jesus this Christmas? After all it is the day that we celebrate His birth. We spend a lot of time in the mall and/or online looking for that perfect gift for somebody and we probably don't even think about the one who is really the reason for all this celebration. Her message and that question prompted me to post this today.
A great gift for Jesus would be God's Word for those He came to save.
As a believer, you serve as an ambassador of Christ to people around the world and from all walks of life.
Since 1809, Biblica, an organization with which I am an Affiliate, has provided Bibles to sailors, soldiers, pioneers, housewives, teachers, missionaries, pastors, and many others who serve as ambassadors of the gospel. Ordinary people are sharing an extraordinary God with people in their circle of influence with a simple and humble gift of God’s word.
This type of sharing is the heart of Scripture Outreach.
Whether it’s a Sunday school teacher purchasing children’s Bibles for her class or a brave believer finding ways to get Scripture past enemies of the gospel, Christians serve as God’s messengers when they take the Bible and the gospel message to people who lack the good news of God’s love and offer of salvation.
You are one of these ambassadors’ through your prayers and gifts for Scripture Outreach. Together, we can provide God’s Word through creative channels and in many formats, so that no barriers, whether it’s cultural, political, religious, economic, or physical, may stand in the way of individuals receiving Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Through Scripture Outreach, Biblica is placing Bibles in more than 100 languages in print, audio, and online mediums to make the gospel accessible for people anywhere, regardless of life circumstance.
At this very moment, there are millions of people who are hungry for the transformational message of Scripture; yet more than two-thirds of the world has never encountered Jesus Christ.
As an ambassador, you can serve and reach those who are hungry for the gospel by donating a case of Bibles to needy and charitable causes.
Donating a case of Bibles is made easy through Biblica. Simply purchase the case of Bibles that supports the message and cause you wish to support and have the case shipped directly to them. Biblica provides a wide variety of specialized, outreach Bibles to choose from.
Biblica provides a large selection of Outreach Bibles to support many causes. Whether you aspire to introduce children to the story of Jesus, provide easy to read scripture to those who are visually impaired, witness to prison inmates, provide support to those in the military or new mothers, there is a Bible designed to support and inspire. Browse the store on Biblica.com and be inspired by the array of Biblical offerings.
