A Ground Game
I was watching some football this past weekend and the teams that won most of the games had a good ground game. They rushed the football very well which then opened up the passing game which resulted in winning games. The Lord whispered into my heart that the body of Christ must have a good ground game if they are going to win communities and our nation to Jesus Christ. The ground game the Lord was speaking to me about is evangelism.
Evangelism is the people of God coming out of the church building and witnessing in their neighborhoods and community where they live. This is the spiritual ground game.
Whereby people can be told about Jesus and become born again believers.
One of the main purposes of Awakeamerica365 is to train people to witness and then take them out into their communities to put into practice what they have been taught to do. This happened in a church in Indiana and it was very successful. After people were trained, we took them out two by two into local neighborhoods to share the gospel and be among the people. We saw many people surrender their lives to Jesus, rededicate their lives to the Lord and ask for prayer. And several of the people came to church the next morning. The ground game worked in Indiana and it will work anywhere in our nation.
It is time for the body of Christ to rise up and stop being inward in its focus. The body of Christ must become outward in its focus and start to share the good news of Jesus Christ with their neighbors, friends, family members and coworkers. It is time to do the work of an evangelist. It is time to develop a ground game in our local assemblies. It is time to win our communities and nation to Jesus because Jesus is the answer.
