Fruit That Lasts
“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.” (John 15:16, NIV
Let us praise God for the successful “Money Talks!” we held last June 18. Out of the 160 people who joined the seminar, more than 70 were visitors! I would like to thank all of you who worked so hard to ensure the success of the bridging event. Some of you may be a little discouraged because no one responded to your invitation. But I believe God knows your heart. God will reward all of us for our efforts. Only eternity will reveal the full impact of “Money Talks!”
But the Lord wants us to bear fruit that lasts. He is looking for fruit that remains. Pastor Bill Kennedy of the Metro Manila Franklin Graham Festival said, “Preparation for the event is 45%. The event itself is only 10%. The preservation of the fruit is 45%.”
Thus, we need to press on! Please help us follow-up our visitors. We have prepared “thank you” cards for them. It would be more meaningful if you personally give it to them. (You may get it from Sis. Joyce or Sis. Jasmin.) Ask them about the event. Do they have any suggestions to improve it? Any topic which may be of great interest to them for future “Money Talks!” seminars? Tell them their opinion matters to us. Take this opportunity to share the Gospel to them. Together let us bear the fruit that the Lord appointed us to bear—fruit that lasts!
Again, thank you for all your efforts. May God richly bless you!
Yours in Christ,
