Sounds like words coming from a hospital delivery room don’t they? Doctors and Dads always encourage young “Moms-to-be” with those last minute words, “Come on, you can do it – one final push!”
Well, here at Cross the Culture we want to encourage our North Carolina Baptist readers to use all of their strength and energy for one final push in the Find It Here Campaign going on across the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. Find It Here is an evangelism emphasis centered on Easter Sunday, April 4 – that’s just 4 days away! In the campaign we are asking pastors and churches to do four things on or before Easter Sunday: pray for the salvation of non-Christian family members, friends and neighbors; invite non-Christian family members, friends and neighbors to Easter services; preach an evangelistic sermon and extend an evangelistic invitation Easter Sunday; and baptize new converts Easter Sunday or the following Sunday. Pretty simple huh? Four easy steps that can lead to life-transformation and an eternal difference in someone’s life!
Churches all across North Carolina are already reporting great results through their participation in Find It Here. Churches are experiencing an increase in unity and excitement, increased attendance and best of all dozens of people becoming Christ-followers as they surrender their lives to the Lordship of Christ.
It’s not too late! Christian, you still have four days to invite non-Christian family members, friends and neighbors to Easter services at your church. Pastor, you still have time to prepare a strong, clear, presentation of the Gospel to challenge your congregation to trust Christ as their Savior. Church, you still have time to pray that God will do something truly special at your church Easter Sunday.
Wouldn’t it be great to see thousands of people born into the Kingdom of God this Easter? It can happen! Come on North Carolina Baptists – one final push!
