Be a Point of Light

1000 Points of Light is an intentional initiative created to help us shift our perspective and open our eyes to the everyday opportunities that God sets before each and every one us.
 
Between May and September, our hope is to make 1000 intentional points of light in our community and around the world. 
 
A point of light is any action that shares the love of Jesus by encouraging, supporting, praying, loving, or giving to someone in need that day.
 
So whether you, encourage a stranger, help your neighbor, support a co-worker, pray for a family member or lead someone in making a life changing decision to follow Jesus Christ, do it with intentionality and purpose, knowing that you are being a light in the darkness. 
 
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. 
John 1:5 
  • Actions that encourages, supports or shares the love of Jesus.

Whenever we have a guest blog post come in at work, I find something that is uniquely meaningful to me and tell the author about it (encourage them). I’ve been told this is very unique and uplifting to them, especially if they’ve not written much before but have something on their heart to share 🙂

I shared the gospel with someone who is 14. I asked her what she would like to studybwhen she goes to university…evolution of man was her answer…. What a leeway. I shared with her the purpose of her life in light of the cross. She was open. I pray holy spirit will draw her in.
