Each One Reach One
If each one resolved to reach one, what impact would result in one year? Five years? In just ten years, the entire city of Yakima could be transformed.
There are three simple ways we can begin to Reach One:
- Live it. Our examples serve as our first point of reaching others. We must practice what we preach. Others may wish to learn more about Christ because they see Him in us. “I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth.” -Isaiah 49:6b
- Talk it. We need to share again and again. How has God transformed your own life? Talk about what you love about our church. Talk about what you’re looking forward to. "Come to Restoration with me this Sunday.” Invite others to study and grow with you, and be willing to follow up. Try using resources like our personal invite cards or discipleship studies.
- Pray. The thought of sharing our faith can leave us feeling unqualified, intimidated, and afraid. This is why we must continually turn to God in prayer- sincerely asking for God to give the opportunities, that He would prepare hearts around us, and that God would equip us to use our efforts for His glory. "that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." -2 Timothy 3:17
Each one can reach one. It requires a willingness to be intentional, a fear of God rather than man, and a commitment to being involved in the body of Christ.
