The overall objective is to encourage people to pray for God to work through them to help at least 7 people find Him (or return to Him) in 2017. The idea here is to pray and trust God to move supernaturally in making this happen. We cannot be responsible for the decisions of others, but we can be responsible to pray and to be obedient to God’s leading.
For everyone who makes a decision for Jesus,
A. either you or someone else sponsor/mentor them by:
- by being available 24/7 to walk through the first six months of their
spiritual walk with them, and
- by helping them navigate the temptations that believers face.
(Males would work with males, and females would work with females.)
(The church could learn much about the value of a sponsor/mentor from
Alcoholics Anonymous and similar organizations.)
B. teach them how to love God more deeply by spending quality time with
C. encourage them to utilize their gifts in a local congregation.
D. encourage them to be involved in a small group of some kind (discipleship, neighborhood, etc.) where they can get to know some Christians well and grow with them.
An intercessor will pray for you regularly.
God desires to use every one of His children to grow His kingdom. Would you be willing to be a part of “7 in 17”?
